Liverpool took the lead over AC Milan at Anfield in their Champions League group opener through Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Liverpool vs AC Milan has all the feeling of a classic Champions League tie, with both clubs having a rich history in the competition.
Jurgen Klopp made several changes to his starting XI for the contest, but the attitude remained the same – take the game to the opponents and outscore them.
Just nine minutes into the contest, that strategy proved fruitful, with Trent Alexander-Arnold finding the back of the net.
From start to finish, Trent Alexander Arnold ?

The goal has officially gone down as a Fikayo Tomori own-goal, with Alexander-Arnold’s initial effort not thought to be going on target.
However, the former Chelsea defender will have absolutely no interest in claiming that, with Alexander-Arnold’s proactive approach from right-back making the goal.
Alexander-Arnold has started the season in quite phenomenal form, which makes you wonder why on Earth you’d even suggest switching his position.
Trent is a right-back by trade and he’s the best right-back in the business. He’s proving that once again this evening and against strong opposition.
