Liverpool fans have praised a phase of play that was produced by Trent Alexander-Arnold during his side’s 2-1 victory against Genk on Tuesday.
Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain meant that the Reds went top of their Champions League group after Napoli failed to beat RB Salzburg in the other game in Group E.
Genk’s Mbwana Samatta scored from a set-piece for the visitors just before half-time but it wasn’t enough as the Belgian side were dominated from the first kick to the last. The Merseyside club only need one point from their last two games to advance into the Round of 16.
