Goals: Elliott 13
Jurgen Klopp made eight changes from the dismal 3-0 defeat away at Brighton, and despite having to somewhat hang on towards the end there were a number of positives to take from the performance.
There is still plenty of work left to be done, but having booked a place in the fourth round, scored the opening goal and gotten back to winning ways for the first time since the New Year, the picture looks slightly rosier.
Elliott grabbed the goal to split the two sides, and 18-year-old Bajcetic continued to enhance his reputation with 75 minutes befitting of an experienced first-teamer.
At a time when the overall mood around the club isnt at its highest, there were extremely encouraging signs that the future is bright in the hands of Liverpools most talented youngsters.
He waited and waited as he brought the ball deep into Wolves half and assessed his options, then the 19-year-old blasted it past Jose Sa to put Liverpool in front.
It was an assured performance in a more advanced role for the youngster:
Harvey Elliott is 19 and people write him off. It’s genuinely embarrassing.
He’s a fantastic young player with a massive future he will have bad games and be raw in aspects of his play because he’s 19!
Believe it or not, Gerrard could be poor at that age, too. It’s normal.
