Nuno ‘very happy’ after Wolves dump Liverpool out of FA Cup

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo was very pleased after seeing his side knock Premier League leaders Liverpool out of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win tonight at Molineux.

Mexican striker Raul Jimenez would give the home side the lead against an inexperienced Liverpool side in the 38th minute, although Reds attacker Divock Origi would draw the scores level six minutes into the second-half.

However, just a few minutes after Liverpool’s equaliser Wolves Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves would settle the tie with a sensational 30 yard striker and put Wolves into the draw for the fourth round.

“I am very pleased, the team performed very well in a tough game. We took our chances,” Nuno told BBC Sport.

“He has talent [Neves], he has done it before and we encourage him to shoot from range. It was a good strike and the fans were very special.

“The draw is the draw, next we have Manchester City so we are focused on that.”

Wolves will face either Shrewsbury or Stoke in the next round.
