Trent Alexander-Arnold made his return from injury at Benfica but you would be none the wiser, with his wand of a right boot tuned in from the off.
The right-back made his return from a hamstring injury on Tuesday night, playing 89 minutes before being replaced by Joe Gomez.
His presence is a vital one for Jurgen Klopp‘s side and he didn’t take long to find his touch after missing the Reds’ last two games, with his eye for a pass greatly appreciated by supporters.
Alexander-Arnold’s vision coupled with his ability to execute makes him a constant threat and he showed that off in Portugal.

Enjoy every moment of Trent's career.
You're witnessing the early years of the career of the man who will retire as Liverpool's greatest ever player.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s passing ability and eye for spaces to utilize is out of this world, man.

You’ve been redefining what it is to be a right back since you’re 18 years of age. All for the club you grew up supporting on the biggest of stages. A truly elite superstar operating at absurdly high levels.

Still only 23 years of age, it’s a scary proposition of the levels he can yet hit for Liverpool.
That he makes it all look so easy is a testament to his ability and with a massive few weeks ahead, we’ll be looking for more of that as the Reds continue to chase history.
To have Alexander-Arnold fit and a full squad available is a rare luxury, these are special days.
