It was one of the most ingenious corner routines ever seen on a football pitch, so perhaps it’s no surprise that Liverpool’s players are still milking it 18 months on.

Here, the right-back, along with team-mate, Andy Robertson, explain to Rio Ferdinand how it happened, with the former Man United defender labelling Barca’s defending ‘criminal.’
“For him to turn, see it and adapt so quick…”
