In a Champions League thriller at Anfield, Liverpool had to come from behind to beat AC Milan. Taking a deserved early lead when former Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori deflected a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross into his own net, Jurgen Klopp’s side laid siege to Milan’s goal from the start. The Reds triumph in a tough match against Stefano Pioli’s side at a 3-2 football result.
When Milan struck twice in the space of seconds right before half-time to take the lead through Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz after being completely outplayed, Liverpool were stunned. The Reds had a chance to double their lead when Mohamed Salah’s penalty was saved by keeper Mike Maignan.
Klopp’s side regrouped to put Milan under intense pressure once more after the break. And they earned victory for their stirring comeback. After being superbly set up by Divock Origi, Salah made amends for his penalty miss by equalizing from close range after 48 minutes.
In the 69th minute, Jordan Henderson hits his first Champions League goal in seven years at home when Milan could only partially clear a Liverpool corner to settle this richly entertaining Group B opening game. Football highlights of epic comeback from Liverpool as they beat really good Milan
