Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui claims that he and his staff have proof that Toti's disallowed winner in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Liverpool in the FA Cup should have stood.

A much-changed and youthful Wanderers side put in an impressive display at Anfield, though Goncalo Guedes and Hwang Hee-chan's goals were helped a little by a dawdling Alisson.

Strikes from Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah helped the Reds secure a replay at Molineux, but the visitors could have won it late on.

A potential winner from Toti was ruled out as Matheus Nunes, who had taken a corner just beforehand, was deemed to have been offside.

However, the Wolves bench were viewing the game with a tactical camera that was not accessible to the VAR, and from that angle, Nunes appeared to have been onside.

"The offside that we had - we have seen it, the offside doesn’t exist, I’m sorry," Lopetegui said post-match.

"It’s impossible. Someone has told him [the referee] it’s offside, but we’ve seen the images, it doesn’t exist. The decision is wrong. I make mistakes every day, and sometimes they do too. It is a pity, because I’m sorry, it’s not offside."

When asked how he could be so sure of such a claim, Lopetegui replied: "Our tactical camera - at the time I have seen the replay and it was [even] better in the dressing room."
