WATCH: Alisson makes horrendous FA Cup blunder as Liverpool goalkeeper gifts Wolves opener
- Wolves open scoring
- Alisson at fault
- Gifts the ball to Guedes
WHAT HAPPENED? Wolves took the lead at Anfield against Liverpool in the FA Cup with the help of Alisson. Some poor defending by the hosts culminated in the Brazilian passing the ball straight to Goncalo Guedes in the penalty area. The Wolves man accepted the gift gratefully and prompted slotted home to make it 1-0 to the visitors.
The Reds did hit back after the opening goal. Nunez levelled with a fine finish before Salah put the hosts in front. However, Wolves went on to make it 2-2 through Hwang Hee-chan, and the match ended with that score.
