Liverpool didn’t get off to the best start against Southampton on Monday night as Danny Ings gave the Saints a shock lead in the second minute.
A looping free-kick got the best of Trent Alexander-Arnold, who seemingly tried to control the ball with his abs before allowing his former team-mate through on goal.
Ings made no mistake, lobbing the ball over Alisson and into the top-right corner on his weaker foot, as if it were a training drill!
To be fair to the forward, he didn’t celebrate after scoring, showing his respect to the club that gave him a big chance earlier in his career.
