Lautaro Martinez had commentators chuckling in the first half of action at Anfield after avoiding a one-v-one with Virgil van Dijk.
The Argentine was put through courtesy of a superb pass, though appeared to give up on the idea of outsprinting the centre-half after realising the Dutchman was his opponent.
The 24-year-old appeared to have rediscovered his scoring boots in his club’s prior league meeting with bottom-placed Serie A outfit Salernitana, registering a hat-trick against the Garnets.
