Trent Alexander-Arnold Scores Flukey Goal For Liverpool After Massive Deflection

Trent Alexander-Arnold Scores Flukey Goal For Liverpool After Massive Deflection

Trent Alexander-Arnold looked to have opened the scoring for Liverpool on Saturday evening but it went down as an own goal after the Red's full-back's cross-cum-shot took a huge deflection.

The England international seemed to have put Jurgen Klopp's side ahead against Burnley with an incredible goal, catching Nick Pope off his line, but it quickly became apparent that Chris Wood's head got in the way and took the ball over the keeper.

Fantasy Football managers would have been hoping for the football gods to be kind to them and give the goal as Alexander-Arndold's first of the season but unfortunately it did go down as an own goal.

Liverpool, the only unbeaten side left in the Premier League, had soon doubled their lead as Sadio Mane was gifted a goal following Ben Mee's error in playing the ball out of defence.

In truth the Reds could have been further ahead, with Mo Salah missing from yards out thanks to the slightest of touches from Nick Pope.

Alexander-Arnold has become one of England's regular squad players for Gareth Southgate but in next week's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo he has the chance to cement a place as first choice.

Southgate has many choices at right-back and chose to leave Kyle Walker out of the squad for the games, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Kieran Trippier called up alongside the Liverpool player.

Were you amongst the many annoyed with the own goal?
