PREMIER - Henderson pivot Liverpool to a win over AC Milan

Published on: 15 September 2021

Liverpool won a hard-fought 3-2 Champions League match against AC Milan on Wednesday thanks to Jordan Henderson's spectacular long-range goal.

Despite undergoing serious pressure the Serie A side turned the game around completely at the end of the first half with Milan having a 2-1 halftime lead at Anfield thanks to two goals in 110 seconds from Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz, who made up for Fikayo Tomori's unlucky own goal in the ninth minute.

After the break, though, the Rossoneri were unable to maintain their pressure. Mohamed Salah scored in the 49th minute after missing a penalty in the first half, and Henderson's missile from a corner kick in the 69th minute settled Wednesday's group-stage extravaganza.

Both teams have battled it out against each other in the Champions League after Liverpool denied AC Milan victory in the 2005 Champions League final.
