Jurgen Klopp’s side were put to the sword by an eager Wolves team, as the hosts beat Liverpool 2-1 in a deserved victory.
Raul Jimenez netted first with seven minutes until half time, while Divock Origi equalised soon after the break with a fine strike on the edge of the box.
Less than five minutes later however, Wolves were back in the lead due to a fantastic long-range goal from star-man Ruben Neves who has made a habit of scoring from distance since his arrival in England.
Although Liverpool’s starting eleven was much changed compared to their usual Premier League line-up, there were worrying aspects to their performance.
The defence looked shaky throughout the ninety minutes but ultimately held up very well considering it was up to debutant Ki-Jana Hoever to replace the injured Dejan Lovren after six minutes.
In attack Liverpool were surprisingly toothless as many expected players such as Sturridge, Origi and Shaqiri to be chomping at the bit to impress Klopp due to the fact they are regularly benched.
