In Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool, Wolverhampton Wanderers had a goal controversially ruled out due to Jonny Otto being deemed offside in the build-up. Supporters weren’t happy with the decision and vented their fury on social media. Wolves thought they’d equalised in the final minute of first-half injury time, but VAR went against them.

Jonny beat Andrew Robertson to a through ball on the right flank and whipped in a low cross that Pedro Neto converted, but the goal was chalked off despite replays suggesting Jonny’s foot was level with the offside line in the build-up. Supporters felt they’d been cheated out of an equaliser and weren’t shy about giving their opinion on Twitter.

Wolves’ narrow defeat at Anfield was their fourth of the season and left them seventh in the Premier League table with 30 points from 20 games. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are level on points with Tottenham (4th) and one point adrift of Manchester United (5th) ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Watford.

Is a top four finish a realistic target?

Victory on gameweek 21 could see Wolves move to within one place of the Champions League places.
