… then two years later at Molineux this happened …

… and finally the other week they were a dubious offside decision away from making it three in a row …

… so can Julen Lopetegui’s rejuvenated side complete the triptych against increasingly dysfunctional opponents tonight? We’ll soon find out, even if there must be extra time and penalties. Kick off is at 7.45pm GMT. It’s on!

Key events

84 mins: On comes a walking headline: Diego Costa, 34. He replaces Jimenez. His last FA Cup goal was in the 2017 final, as Chelsea were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal. He could n’t score his di lui next tonight, could he? It’d be his di lui first di lui for Wolves if he does so.

83 mins: The livewire Doak nearly intercepts a ball on the halfway line. Had he managed to control, Wolves – who are throwing everyone forward in desperation – would have been in a world of trouble.

81 mins: The excellent Ait-Nouri crosses from the left. Phillips heads high into the air with Jimenez lurking. Kelleher does extremely well to claim the dropping ball amid the hubbub.

80 mins: Podence and Keita get involved in a truly pathetic spat deep in Liverpool territory. A light petulant flick from the former, the latter crashing to the ground as though shot. The referee comes across to tell them both to grow up quicksmart.

79 mins: Traore bursts past Tsimikas down the right. He stands one up into the middle. Jimenez wins a header that glances off Gomez. Once again, Wolves don’t get the corner they deserve. Over the two matches, they’ve not had much help from the referees and VAR operatives.

78 mins: Tsimikas finally gets over to the corner and takes it. It’s not worth waiting for.

77 mins: Fabinho finds Doak down the right with a long-range diagonal pass. Doak looks for Salah in the middle. Toti is forced to run the cross behind for a corner. Tsimikas to take. He doesn’t rush across. “I am really enjoying watching Rayan Ait-Nouri play this year,” begins Justin Madson. “Whenever I watch Wolves play, there’s at least one moment where he is providing a much needed offensive spark. He’s looked lively tonight and is definitely a bright spot for Wolves. How soon until a Big Six team comes knocking?”

75 mins: Liverpool make a double change: Thiago and Bajcetic make way for Fabinho and Doak.

73 mins: The free kick is just to the right of the D. Neves looks for the top right. The curler isn’t quite aimed for the corner, allowing Kelleher to fingertip over. Wolves don’t get the corner – it was a subtle flick – and Neves is quite rightly livid. Given there wasn’t too much in the award of the free kick, perhaps that’s all leveled out.

72 mins: Raul flicks Cunha into a little space down the inside-right channel. He goes over the leg of Phillips, just to the right of the Liverpool D. Free kick, and Phillips goes into the book. Not sure there was too much contact there, but it was a positive move and Wolves have their reward.

70 mins: Now Cunha hovers on the left-hand edge of the Liverpool six-yard box. He can’t quite sort his feet out to shoot, and when he finally does, Keita nicks the ball away to clear. The home team have their tails up.

69 mins: Neves rolls a fine pass down the right to release Semedo into space. Semedo’s cross is decent but Konate confidently clears. Instantly better than Wolves.

67 mins: A brief lull, much as you’d expect after the replacement of five players. Everyone readjusting to life.

65 mins: Subs aplenty ahoy! Wolves replace Jonny and Moutinho with Podence and Cunha. Liverpool respond by switching out Gakpo, Carvalho and Milner for Salah, Jones and Phillips.

63 mins: Keita slips Gakpo free down the middle. Gakpo attempts to chip Sa, but the keeper spreads to block brilliantly. The flag then goes up for offside anyway. “And we come to the defining conundrum of Traore,” announces Joe Pearson. “He is an exciting and threatening presence with the ball, but he just doesn’t score. Just nine goals in 139 appearances for Wolves. That’s not a very good return.” Liverpool fans are going to be furious with you if you’ve just rattled Fate’s cage and tempted him with some treats.

62 mins: Thiago nicks the ball off the toe of Neves, who goes down dramatically. It’s a fine tackle, but the crowd want the already booked Liverpool man to receive his marching orders. Nope. Good pantomime fun, though.

61 mins: Ait-Nouri rolls a low cross in from the left. Jimenez, his back to goal on the edge of the Liverpool box, lays off to Traore, who flashes recklessly miles over the bar. A fine chance to finally work Kelleher spurned.

59 mins: Carvalho races down the left and feeds Tsimikas on the overlap. Tsimikas fires a low cross into the six-yard box, but Gakpo fails to attack the near post. Collins attempts to clear and the ball pings off Tsimikas and out for a throw. Liverpool have been quiet since the restart; that’s the best they’ve managed in the second half so far.

57 mins: Thiago is booked for clipping an in-flight Jimenez right in front of the referee. TO Liverpool name finally goes into the referee’s notebook, to the ironic cheers of the faithful home.

56 mins: Keita and Carvalho nearly open Wolves up with a crisp one-two down the inside-right channel. Traore, of all people, breaks up the move and clears.

55 mins: They’ve yet to get Kelleher’s hands seriously warm, though. Despite Wolves hogging the ball, the visitors look comfortable enough.

53 mins: Harvey’s loose pass surprises Konate, and allows Ait-Nouri to advance down the left. Ait-Nouri fizzes a low cross into the mixer. Kelleher claims easily enough. Wolves have been the better side since the restart.

52 mins: The home crowd are in better humor now, as Keita drags a long-range shot so far right that it nearly goes out for a throw. Wahey, etc.

51 mins: The corner’s worked out to Neves on the right. His cross hits Tsimikas on the back of his trousers, then Keita on the shoulder. He claims a penalty. He’s not getting one. The crowd go ballistic on his behalf, but really.

50 mins: Since the restart, Wolves are seeing more of the ball than Liverpool. Collins sprays a pass down the left, where Ait-Nouri wins the first corner of the second half.

48 mins: Other than that, a slow, steady start to the second period.

46 mins: Toti rakes a long pass down the left that nearly releases Ait-Nouri. Milner slides across to put a stop to his gallop in the 1980s style. Hard but fair.

Liverpool get the ball rolling for the second half. Wolves have made a couple of changes: Hodge and Lembikisa make way for Semedo and Nunes.

Alternative opinions department. Here’s Danny Stephens, regarding the comment about Liverpool not doing anything particularly egregious (45 mins). “I don’t think it’s the severity of the fouls, but Liverpool have definitely used three or four niggly fouls to choke off promising Wolves moves. The referee Andre Marriner has been extremely patient with that. There probably should have been yellow by now for anyone who did it again. Like a team warning in rugby.”

Half time entertainment. The Women’s Super League is back, and so is Women’s Football Weekly. This episode features a controversial penalty decision, an 89th-minute equaliser, a cricket score and a win for bottom-of-the-table Leicester – is the great escape on?

HALF TIME: Wolves 0-1 Liverpool

Nothing happens in the added minutes, and that’s the end of the first half. There hasn’t been much in it. Liverpool slightly the better team … and they’ve scored a cracking goal. As things stand, the holders will be traveling to Brighton in the fourth round.

45 mins: To be honest, Liverpool haven’t done much that’s been particularly egregious. Lopetegui’s ire may stem from a sense of injustice at Gomez’s block of Ait-Nouri’s shot just before the Liverpool goal. He’ll not have seen a replay yet, so he will still assume it should have been a penalty. Anyway, here we all are, with two minutes of bonus time added before the break.

43 mins: Traore tugs at Tsimikas’s shoulder, then clips his ankles. He’s the first player to go into the book. Lopetegui, who feels Liverpool have been constantly fouling his players since the get-go, laughs sarcastically in the fourth official’s face.

42 mins: Ait-Nouri dribbles elegantly infield from the left, but a heavy touch betrays him on the edge of the box. Shame, because it was a fine run past a couple of despairing challenges.

40 mins: A long Neves pass down the right releases Traore, who reaches the box ahead of Tsimikas and Gomez. But there’s nobody in the middle, so he has to have a whack from a tight angle. He flays a wild effort wide right and high.

38 mins: Liverpool’s tails are up. Tsimikas advances down the left and crosses long for Elliott, who is never winning a header at the far stick. A bit more on the cross, though, and the ball would have evaded Jonny, dropping instead at Elliott’s feet. Then Thiago is found by the right-hand edge of the Wolves D. He sees off Collins with graceful ease, then strokes a shot with the outside of his boot wide left. It wouldn’t have counted, because up pops that offside flag again.
