Jurgen Klopp refused to blame Alisson’s mistakes for Liverpool’s FA Cup tie against Wolves.

The Brazilian was to blame for Wolves’ first goal, giving Goncalo Guedes an easy finish with a direct pass while conceding a weak second against Hwang Hee-chan.

Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah both scored to ensure the defending champions did not suffer shock in the third round, but their combined efforts were not enough to prevent a replay at Molineux.

Speaking afterwards, however, Klopp didn’t lay his problems at the feet of his goalkeeper, instead praising what Wolves brought to the table in a thrilling contest at Anfield.

“The goal wasn’t supposed to happen but we all know how many times Ali saves our bums,” he told ITV Sport. “They had counterattacks before [too].

“It’s always dangerous when [Adama] Traore gets the ball, we could see that. We came back with a fantastic equalizer. They got a foot in the game and caused us massive problems.”

Liverpool came closest to an exit when Toti Gomes saw a finish controversially ruled out by the linesman’s flag and VAR were unable to offer enough angles to confirm if Gomes was on the side.

The decision sparked an angry reaction from Julen Lopetegui and Klopp conceded it wasn’t an ideal situation for either team.

“I’m not sure about their third goal,” he added. “We have an image where it might look aside.

“I can understand why they are angry about this. We don’t want the VAR to have just one angle.”

Cody Gakpo made a solid debut after arriving from PSV and Klopp gave the Dutchman warm praise.

“He fit into the game,” he added. “The first step was not easy. We can’t expect it to be perfect.

“He showed good signs. We need to put him in better positions but that will undoubtedly come.”
