Liverpool Comeback Sinks Milan In Champions League Epic

Posted by

Liverpool had to come from behind to beat AC Milan in a Champions League thriller at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side pounced on Milan’s goal right away, gaining a merited lead when Fikayo Tomori, a former Chelsea defender, diverted a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross into his own net.

Liverpool were surprised when Milan scored twice in the space of seconds shortly before half-time after being utterly outplayed to grab the lead through Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz.

After the break, Klopp’s side regrouped to put Milan under even more pressure, and they were rewarded for their heroics, with Salah making apologies for his penalty mistake by equalizing from close range after 48 minutes, after Divock Origi set him up beautifully.

When Milan could only half clear a Liverpool corner in the 69th minute, Jordan Henderson rifled home his first Champions League goal in seven years to conclude this highly entertaining Group B opener.
