Reaction as Henderson scores a Gerrard-style winner to secure Champions League victory in five-goal thriller


Liverpool got off to a spectacular start to their Champions League campaign as Jordan Henderson’s Gerrard-style goal secured a 3-2 victory over AC Milan at Anfield.

Fikayo Tomori’s own goal gave the hosts an early lead and could have increased by two, but Mohamed Salah’s penalty was saved.

The visitors scored two goals in quick succession in a spectacular first-half comeback, but minutes into the second half, Salah equalized, setting the stage for the winner from Henderson.

  • Liverpool failed to capitalize on an array of first-half chances
  • Anfield was treated to a return to Champions League football with a five-goal thriller that had almost everything
  • Hosts took 13 shots in the first 15 minutes and were punished for not being clinical
  • Two quick goals from Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz shocked the Reds just before the halftime whistle
