Xherdan Shaqiri claims Liverpool “didn’t deserve” to lose in their 2-1 FA Cup third round defeat to Wolves on Monday night.
Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves scored either side of a Divock Origi opener as the Reds crashed out of the FA Cup.
However, despite their poor performance, Shaqiri reckons Liverpool should have come away from Molineux with a positive result.

“Of course, we are disappointed after this game because we lost, first of all, but I think we didn’t deserve this result because we tried to play football,” Shaqiri told Liverpoolfc.com.
“We tried to come back. We tried everything until the end and you cannot say the attitude wasn’t there until the last minute. We tried everything.
“Sometimes you need luck also and the free-kick was very unlucky. I saw the ball inside already, but it never went in.
“We obviously had a lot of young players and a lot of players in who didn’t play for a long time. We wanted to win this game to go to the next round, but the FA Cup is like this: you lose the game and you are out.
“So, we close this game now and are looking forward to the weekend and the Premier League.”
