Liverpool through to FA Cup fifth round, Wolves win game marked by fan violence

Liverpool secured a comfortable passage into the FA Cup fifth round with a dominant 5-2 victory over Championship outfit Norwich City on Sunday, marking the beginning of Jurgen Klopp’s farewell journey at Anfield.

Klopp, the revered manager of Liverpool, revealed his decision on Friday to depart the Merseyside club at the conclusion of the current season, ending his remarkable nine-year tenure in charge.

Liverpool, boasting eight FA Cup titles, found the net through Curtis Jones, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, Virgil van Dijk, and Ryan Gravenberch in their latest victory.

Their next FA Cup encounter will be against either Watford FC or Southampton, following a 1-1 draw between the two sides earlier in the day. Southampton’s Stuart Armstrong scored a last-minute equalizer to force a replay.

Norwich City, positioned ninth in the Championship, scored through Ben Gibson and Borja Sainz, but ultimately fell short against Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers secured a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in the fourth round. However, the match was marred by clashes between supporters, leading to a 40-minute interruption. Matheus Cunha and Pedro Neto found the net for Wolves in a game overshadowed by disappointing crowd behavior.

Manager Gary O’Neil expressed his dismay, labeling the disturbances as “really disappointing” and stressing the importance of ensuring safety at football events.

The disruption prompted officials to delay the draw for the FA Cup fifth round, originally slated for halftime of the Liverpool-Norwich match, to ensure the safety of all involved.
