Champions League Play-Off First Leg, Rhein-Neckar-Arena
August 15, 2017

Youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold produced an unforgettable moment when he eventually broke the deadlock shortly after the half-hour on his first European appearance for the club.

James Milner was introduced in the second half and he was instrumental in doubling Liverpool’s lead as it was his cross which deflected into the top corner by Havard Nordtveit.

Mark Uth grabbed a goal near the end for Hoffenheim but Liverpool held on to secure a crucial 2-0 victory.

Here are all the reactions from Liverpool supporters throughout the match…


Fans weren’t happy to see the same starting XI…

“I wonder how long it will take for Hoffenheim to score from a corner? It’s the same defence so it’s bound to happen!”

John Hockenhull on Facebook.


And it wasn’t a good start for Lovren as he gave away a penalty after five minutes…

“Jesus, five minutes in and Lovren is all over the shop again. It’s going to be a loooooooong night.”

Alexander-Arnold’s goal stunned fans…


But there was criticism for Moreno…


SidLFC on the forums.

“Lovren and Moreno better thank Mignolet, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Matip for sparing their blushes.”

Tonie Antonini on Facebook.


Liverpool held on to the victory though and fans were just relieved to grab a win…

We played well as a whole but every set piece or counter-attack our defence were in panic mode!”

Tony Reid on Facebook.

“LUCKY” But away win is a win. Good. Defence still rubbish though.”

PJ POP in the comments.

“TAA was by far our best player tonight. Hendo was shocking and Moreno was left for dust. The defence were all over the place but it’s the result which counts.”

Matthew Wright on Facebook.

“Good result but Klopp has plenty of work to do.”
