Arsenal get Man United after Wolves knock out Liverpool

Ruben Navas we know.

But Ki-Jana Hoevert? We had never heard of this Dutch lad had we?

Some regulars had sore throats and Jurgen Klopp picked an experimental team.

And Wolves deserved to win.

They had more passion, more intelligence, a better shape and superior fluency. They were better than Liverpool in every department and never looked like losing, even when it was 1-1.

Klopp started the versatile Fabinho at centreback alongside Lovren, resting Van Dijk.

When the Croatian was injured after six minutes he was replaced by sixteen-year-old Ki-Jana Hoevert, who soon proved to be a phenomenal talent with gazelle–like pace and huge ability on the ball.

Wolves took the lead when Raul Jimenez rifled home a well-placed shot in 38.

The home team led 1-0 at half-time but a Divock Origi thunderbolt levelled it at 51.

Four minutes later midfielder Ruben Neves made  it 2-1 with one of his spectacular 30-yard shots.

Liverpool had stuttered throughout and the arrival of Mo Salah and Firmino didn’t improve them very much
