Liverpool will look to get back to winning ways when they travel to face Wolves in FA Cup third round on Monday night. The Reds are wounded after a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City on Thursday night at Etihad. The result means the gap at the top has been reduced to four points.
Jurgen Klopp will want a comfortable result on Monday to get the confidence back up. The Club has not won a single trophy since 2012 despite massive investment. FA Cup cabinet at Anfield has only 7 crowns and the German has a golden chance to improve on that. Aston Villa has also won 7 FA Cups in their history.
4. Tottenham Hotspurs- 8 Trophies
