Trent Alexander-Arnold Scores Incredible 90th Minute Winner For Liverpool With Southgate Watching

Trent Alexander-Arnold has scored a 90th minute screamer to snatch Liverpool a 2-1 victory vs Aston Villa - with England manager Gareth Southgate in attendance.

The 22-year-old has been heavily discussed in recent weeks after being left out of the Three Lions squad last month.

A poor performance vs Real Madrid in the Champions League in midweek has seen many doubt if Alexander-Arnold can handle the pressure.

But he came up with a stunning injury time winner from just outside the box at Anfield - sealing a vital first home win in nine for the Reds.

Jamie Carragher provided commentary on the game and he was involved in a heated debate with Gary Neville over Alexander-Arnold on Monday Night Football.

The former Liverpool defender remarked: "Are you watching Gary Neville?" not long after the goal went in.

Fans have reacted to the curling effort and they're happy to see Alexander-Arnold hopefully mark an upturn in form.

A lengthy check saw Diogo Jota judged to have been offside by the smallest of margins.

VAR took its time to determine whether Villa defender Matty Cash had got a touch on the ball and the verdict that he didn't make any contract meant the goal was subsequently chalked off.

Jurgen Klopp's side did get their equaliser through Mohamed Salah in the second half before Alexander-Arnold stepped up to seal all three points.

Liverpool have now moved into the top four temporarily ahead of Chelsea, who play Crystal Palace this evening.
