Toti turned in a shot from Hwang Hee-chan, and wheeled away in celebration.

But the linesman then raised his flag for offside.

He flagged against Matheus Nunes, who had received the ball again after the initial corner was clear. The ball had flicked off Hwang.

Unbelievably, there were no available camera angles to show Nunes’ position when Hwang flicked the ball back.

Therefore, the on-field decision had to be upheld, and Toti’s goal stayed chalked off.

It was a terrible moment for Wolves, who had deserved to win the game. It would also have been Toti’s best moment in a Wolves shirt to date.

Toti took to Twitter last night to post a message to fans following the controversy.

He said: “Mix of emotions last night. We should be pleased with the massive effort we made! The nightlong fans support was outstanding! We go for more.”

It was quite an eventful night for Toti.

He was also at the centre of some controversy for Liverpool’s second goal.

Mo Salah scored, after Toti had made an attempt to play the ball. The Egyptian was offside, but became on due to Toti’s decision.

Toti Gomes was very unlucky for Wolves against Liverpool with disallowed goal and deserved more

Toti probably did not anticipate he would be so heavily involved against Liverpool.

It is such a shame he cannot be tweeting about a winning goal at Anfield and instead he is talking about ‘mixed emotions’.

Overall he put in a great defensive performance at Anfield, and he really deserved that moment towards the end.

But it wasn’t to be, and Wolves must now prepare to a replay which is far more ideal.

Hopefully in the game at Molineux, Toti will be on top form and won’t be on the wrong side of any more controversial decisions.
