Trent Alexander-Arnold had Anfield in the palm of his hand with a trademark pinpoint cross that handed Diogo Jota a goalscoring chance on a plate.
The Academy graduate received the ball on the edge of the 18-yard-box, unleashing a first-time lofted ball that took a bounce in the box before the Portuguese international converted Liverpool’s first of their Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid.
Jurgen Klopp’s men previously secured an important 3-2 victory at the Wanda Metropolitano and could send themselves through to the next stage of the competition if they manage to take all three points at Anfield.
