Second-tier Wolverhampton Wanderers ensured Liverpool's season went from bad to worse as they knocked the seven-time winners out of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win at Anfield on Saturday.

Defeat meant Liverpool, 10 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, had been knocked out of two cup competitions in a matter of four days following their 2-0 aggregate loss to Southampton in the semi-finals of the League Cup on Wednesday.

Wolves's Richard Stearman stunned the home crowd by putting the visitors 1-0 up inside the first minute when he headed in a free-kick.

And four minutes before half-time, Wolves doubled their lead when Andreas Weimann finished off an excellent counter-attack move.

But, having rarely threatened, Liverpool pulled a goal back when Divock Origi scored from close range with four minutes left following a corner.

Nevertheless Wolves, who beat another Premier League side in Stoke in the third round, hung on to secure victory as Liverpool suffered a third home defeat in eight days as more than 8,000 away fans celebrated at Anfield.
