Liverpool put one foot in the group stages of the Champions League thanks to a vital 2-1 away win over Hoffenheim in Germany this evening.

Alexander-Arnold was making his European debut because of injury to regular right-back England worldwide Nathaniel Clyne but justified his inclusion with a strong performance in both attack and defence in addition to the 35th-minute goal. We are still a bit disappointed with the late goal but it is always good to take a lead back to Anfield.

"I told him he had to do it", said Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

Given Liverpool's problems at the back at the moment, Hoffenheim might just be the worst possible opponent for them at this moment in time.

Liverpool - a five-time European champion- is on course to reach the group stage without its star player after Havard Nordtveit inadvertently deflected substitute James Milner's cross from the left high into his own net to make it 2-0 in the 74th minute.

"I think it's more incredible that an 18-year-old has such balls to take this free-kick in this situation", he told reporters after the match.

The talk has been of how Klopp's side will cope without the Brazilian but that honour belongs to a player conspicuous in his presence in Hoffenheim.

"But I watched as many under-23 games as I could last season and he took numerous free-kicks then".

"It was an intense game for Trent". Trent Alexander-Arnold curled the ball over a non-leaping edge of the wall and slipped it inside the far post to make it 1-0 Reds against the run of play.

"It's exciting to try and get into the champions league and get those nights back at Anfield. the job is only half way done and anything can happen in those 90 minutes but we'll do everything we can to get it done". "I don't want the credit for the free-kick because he can shoot free-kicks better than I ever could!"

Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann felt his side were unfortunate to lose. "There were a few harsh tackles from the other side to interrupt the game but if you told me before the game we'd win 2-1 then good". "Anfield doesn't decide anything, but we need to work together and we are looking forward to another European night there".

"We fought really hard for this opportunity", he said.
