Trent Alexander-Arnold Produces Sensational Assist For Diogo Jota Goal In Liverpool Vs Atletico Madrid

Trent Alexander-Arnold Produces Sensational Assist For Diogo Jota Goal In Liverpool Vs Atletico Madrid

"Another day, another assist for Trent," one fan said. Two assists for Trent Alexander-Arnold in the first half against Atletico Madrid.

Trent Alexander-Arnold set up Liverpool teammate Diogo Jota with a sublime whipping cross as the Reds lead Atletico Madrid going into half-time.

The Reds welcomed the defending champions of Spain to Anfield on Wednesday night for their Group B Champions League clash.

And Liverpool made the breakthrough in the 13th minute after Trent picked out Jota with an exquisite cross from the right-hand side.

Jordan Henderson played the ball into the path of an unmarked Trent, whose first-time cross caught out the Atletico defence by complete surprise.

Jota waited for the ball to arrive from three yards out before he fired a header past Jan Oblak from an unmarked position.

“Another day, another assist for Trent,” one fan tweeted.

Someone else posted: “Another brilliant assist for Trent.”

While a third Twitter user wrote: “Obviously not just saying it because of that assist there, but it baffles me that some people don’t think Trent is the best RB [in the world].”

And a fourth added: “The numbers alone are impressive, but it’s the quality of Trent’s assists that set him apart from the rest.”

Trent ensured Liverpool went into half-time with the lead after setting up teammate Sadio Mane, who slid the ball past Oblak from close range.

Atletico were placed further on the back foot after Felipe was sent off in a controversial decision by referee Danny Makkelie.

As things currently stand, Liverpool are top of Group B with 12 points and are seven points clear of second-place Porto.

Atletico, who lost 3-2 to Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano last month, are in third place and are one point behind Porto.

Liverpool lead 10-men Atletico 2-0 at Anfield going into half-time.

Full-time result: Liverpool have booked their place in the Champions League round of 16 after their 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid at Anfield.
