Watch – “Gerrardesque” Trent Alexander-Arnold scores outrageous long-range goal in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Newcastle.

Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold delivered the icing on the cake in what proved to be a comfortable 3-1 win over the Reds against Newcastle United on Thursday.

The fixture seemed like a potential banana skin for Jurgen Klopp and company, especially considering they were without both Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk. The influential Liverpool duo, alongside Curtis Jones, returned suspected positive COVID tests ahead of the game, ruling them out of contention.

With Manchester City sending out a strong statement through their 7-0 demolition of Leeds United on Tuesday, it was important for Liverpool to avoid a slip-up.

However, former Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey opened the scoring for the visitors after Thiago made a mess of a clearance as early as the seventh minute. Eventually, the Reds turned things around with two goals from Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah in the space of four minutes before the half-hour mark.

Alexander-Arnold’s moment of magic arrived only in the 87th minute though. The Englishman thundered in a shot from 25 yards out to beat Martin Dubravka’s full-stretched dive and find the top corner.

Here is a closer look at the outrageous finish from the Liverpool star:
