Jamie Carragher's tweet on Liverpool's third-round FA Cup exit vs Wolves

Jamie Carragher's tweet on Liverpool's third-round FA Cup exit vs Wolves

James Milner admits Liverpool have fallen short of expectations after losing their unbeaten Premier League record and being dumped out of the FA Cup.

"We wanted to start the second half with a positive approach, improve a few things, and we scored the goal".

But some of the momentum in their season might have been lost, with the defeat to Wolves coming four days after a 2-1 loss at Manchester City their first league defeat of the season.

Either way, Jurgen Klopp clearly has the FA Cup far down on his list of priorities, and with the opportunity to end a 28 year wait for a league title, could you blame him?

I have no problem with the LFC selection from JK & would rather we had won but, we have the best chance we've had in years of winning the PL & it may be yrs before we're in this position again.

"Back-to-back defeats now, which really isn't good enough for us, but you have blips in a season".

McIlroy reflects on disappointing final round in Hawaii
He rallied from three shots behind to win that one, finishing birdie-birdie and then making one more birdie to win a playoff. Xander Schauffele won the event after starting the final day five strokes off the lead with a almost historic performance.

"Then after we got ourselves back into the game at 1-1 we were so slow to close Ruben Neves down and he hammered one into the bottom corner".

"It's not about having those blips - they're expected and no team goes throughout a season without having them. The games keep coming thick and fast and hopefully we can get a few of the injured lads back as well". We have to show that, though.

"It wasn't as easy to get the passing going in those tight areas as we would have liked but it was my mistake for the first goal and it cost us ultimately".

When Dejan Lovren limped off injured within minutes of kick-off, the Croatian was replaced by academy defender Ki-Jana Hoever (born January 18, 2002), who came on to make his senior debut at the tender age of just 16 years and 354 days.

At the age of just 16 years and 354 days, Hoever became the third-youngest debutant in the Reds' history on Monday.

"Ki coming on after a minute and playing like he did [was] absolutely outstanding. You can see that straight away - his temperament, he's comfortable on the ball".
