My name is Alexander-Arnold, Trent
And there's a million things I haven't done
But just you wait
Just you waaait
(I promise to keep the Hamilton references to a respectable level. Or at least I’ll try.)
Anyway, can we talk about Trent Alexander-Arnold? And how amazing he is? And how he’s an injury-necessitated fill-in at fullback and he just scored in his Champions League debut?!!
So, yeah. Deep in the first half, with Liverpool lucky to still be level after Simon Mignolet saved a penalty against Hoffenheim, the Reds won a free kick just outside the box. Our young wide defender stepped up to take it. He’s just a kid, on his European debut, and he had the captain step aside so he can take a crack at this set piece. And it worked.
Liverpool are now up 1-0, looking to take this lead into halftime and an away goals advantage into the second leg next week. Wow wow wow wow wow.
