Milan have not won in England since 2005 and will have to keep waiting. It is the only triumph in his 19 visits to the islands and despite the fact that at Anfield he was seen ahead on the scoreboard Liverpool was able to remedy the mess they had gotten into. The first half was clearly ‘red’ but after two disconnections penalized by Rebic and Brahim the ‘rossonero’ team came back from Tomori’s own goal forced by Alexander-Arnold. Salah and Henderson in the second half did justice.

Those of Klopp uncovered the jar of essences and came to finish up 13 times in the first quarter of an hour. It was the most recognizable Liverpool under the command of the German. In that instance they already won thanks to an Alexander-Arnold center that diverted Tomori on his own.
Bennacer deflected a shot from Robertson with his arm but Salah, strangely, missed the maximum penalty. Maignan took out with his legs the powerful shot of the Egyptian, something centered that yes. It is the second penalty that he misses in his 19 shots as a ‘net’. The previous one, against Huddersfield in October 2017.
The ‘scouser’ set merits to double and even triple the income, but to which the rhythm of the duel dropped a bit Milan took a slice. Leao leaked a ball so that Rebic will equalize in 42 ‘and two minutes later Brahim finished a book counter. Robertson saved Theo’s goal but the player on loan from Real Madrid pushed inches from the goal line.
The second half started with a scare with a goal from Kjaer, disallowed for offside by Theo. The ‘red’ reaction, immediate. Salah wall with Origi and the African fitted it to a Maignan that did not come out of the cave. Liverpool were tilting the field again, although not as clearly as in the first half, and Jota saw how Kjaer providentially blocked a shot that ended in the 3-2 corner. Henderson caught the punt from the rear and with an early bounce to put in the schools he flipped a marker again. that no longer moved.
