Liverpool fans “feel alive” after “first step towards No. 7” at Anfield

Liverpool started their Champions League campaign with a memorable 3-2 win at home to AC Milan, with Jordan Henderson‘s winner earning plenty of plaudits.

Liverpool 3-2 AC Milan

Champions League Group Stage (1), Anfield
September 15, 2021

Goals: Tomori OG 9′, Salah 48′, Henderson 69′; Rebic 42′, Diaz 44′


Jurgen Klopp‘s men were looking to kick on after their dominant 3-0 victory at Leeds last weekend, with Milan making the trip to Merseyside.

Liverpool made a flying start and took the lead through a Fikayo Tomori own goal, but Mohamed Salah then missed a penalty.

From nowhere, the Reds found themselves behind at half-time, however, as Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz put Milan in front.

A stunning second half saw Salah equalise and Henderson rifle home a thunderbolt, and Liverpool held on for a big victory as they played out another classic with Milan.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the win on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s comments section.
