Trent Alexander-Arnold was a very, very lucky man after he avoided a straight red card in Liverpool's important Premier League clash with Newcastle United at St James' Park.
The 20-year-old right-back blocked a shot on the line from Salomón Rondón, which was very much going in, but Rafa Benítez's men were still able to pick up an equaliser through Christian Atsu.
Check it out below.

Fans have flocked to social media in disbelief that the Liverpool defender wasn't dismissed.
Trent Alexander-Arnold could easily have been sent off for handball on the goal line then. Plus a penalty. Could have been title over #NEWLIV- Steve Douglas (@sdouglas80) 4 May 2019
That was a deliberate handball from trent arnold. Should have seen red. #NEWLIV- Nouman (@nomi9mi) 4 May 2019
Shouldn't Trent Alexander-Arnold still be booked for that? It's still deliberate handball isn't it? Regardless of the fact he didn't deny a goal scoring opportunity in the end. @RefereeHalsey- Lee Milton (@LeeMilts1882) 4 May 2019
Mind you, Trent Alexander-Arnold should have been sent off for the deliberate handball. And he crosses for the Salah goal. Life's not fair sometimes.- Peter Edmiston (@peteredmiston) 4 May 2019
Great game this, trent Alexandre Arnold should be off like- Jarvis whiteley (@jarviswhiteley) 4 May 2019
I want a petition making for Trent Alexander Arnold to be sent off and the points awarded to Newcastle. Discrace to the game. #liverpoolthat- Glen McCooke (@glenmccooke) 4 May 2019
Virgil van Dijk opened the scoring for Jürgen Klopp's men, and while Atsu was able to pull one back for the Magpies, Mohamed Salah stepped up and restored Liverpool's lead before half-time.
