Wolves boss hails Reds win

8th January 2019, 04:05 by Michael Holland

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo praised a very good perfomance from his side as they knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup.

Ruben Neves' thunderbolt sealed a 2-1 third-round win for the hosts after Divock Origi had hauled Liverpool level. Raul Jimenez opened the scoring after James Milner's first-half error and Wolves travel to Stoke or Shrewsbury in the fourth round.

Jimenez scored seven minutes before half-time when Diogo Jota robbed Milner on the halfway line. Neves netted from 25 yards just four minutes after Origi's smart leveller as Wolves progressed, the second time in three seasons they have knocked Liverpool out.

Wolves deserved victory just over two weeks after losing 2-0 to the Reds in the Premier League.

Nuno said of Neves' long-range strike: "It's something Ruben does and we encourage him to do. Last season we saw it often and we know he has this talent.

"It was a very important moment for us and the fans. We'd just lost a goal and to react with such a beautiful goal, Molineux came alive again.

"It was a good performance, it was a tough game. We were organised and had good counter-attacks.

"In the second half the reaction was important but almost immediately we got back on the front foot so, in general, it was a very good performance.

"We go game after game, now we have Manchester City and we've done well against them in the past."
