Wolves V Liverpool: In the very first minute of FA Cup encounter with the two teams, the floodlights went off and came back on.
As Wolves attacked, the pitch fell into complete darkness, confusing supporters watching from home.
A few seconds later, the lights at Molineux came back on, leaving the players and commentators perplexed.
It happened shortly after astonished fans watched a strange sound, compared to a pornographic movie, play out in the BBC studio.
Fans could not believe what was occurring at Molineux, leaving Gary Lineker stunned.
One said: “Lights out and sex sounds, this night certainly started way more exciting than most Liverpool games in the recent past.”
Soon after the game resumed, Harvey Elliot of Liverpool handed Jurgen Klopp’s team the lead after 13 minutes.
The midfielder got through Wolves’ defense before lobbing goalkeeper Jose Sa with a left-footed shot.
The 19-year-old has made 29 appearances across all competitions and this is his third goal of the year.
How Liverpool Won Wolves
Tuesday night at the Molineux Stadium, Liverpool defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 to advance to the fourth round of the FA Cup.
After a 2-2 draw at Anfield earlier this month, the Reds were forced to play their fellow Premier League team in a rematch, but they were successful the second time around.
Harvey Elliott beautifully hammered in a long-range shot to score the game’s lone goal in the first half.
On the counterattack, the youthful midfielder surged through the middle of the field and fired a swerving shot that Jose Sa was unable to stop.
Despite having only 42% of the ball for the entire 90 minutes, Jurgen Klopp’s squad held off the hosts’ nearly constant siege on their box by playing solid defense and thwarting numerous clear-cut opportunities for the Wolves attackers.
While Elliott scored the game’s lone goal to give Liverpool the victory, Thiago Alcantara, a Spanish international, was Liverpool’s genuine FA Cup hero that evening.
Stunning Performance From Thiago
Alongside Naby Keita and the rising star Stefan Bajcetic, the former Bayern Munich and Barcelona wizard lined up in midfield and put on an incredible performance there.
His outstanding play both in and out of possession during his 75 minutes on the field made him one of the Reds’ standout performers.
The Spaniard was Liverpool’s defensive stalwart, winning seven of ten (70%) of his individual duels, including 100% of those fought in the air and five of eight on the ground.
The star player also made three interceptions, two tackles, and repeatedly shown his ability to get the ball back for his team.
According to Sofascore, Thiago had 78 touches with the ball and completed three of his four attempted dribbles and 85% of his attempted passes, leading to one chance.
These numbers demonstrate that the dynamo was efficient with his technical movements when in possession, consistently finding teammates and outmuscling opponents with his dribbling.
The central midfielder for Liverpool was the true hero of the evening as a result of his play both on and off the ball, which had a huge impact on the outcome. He was cool under pressure to keep the ball for the team and displayed his persistence by making a number of defensive interventions.
