UCL: Arnold, Salah On Target As Liverpool Thump Rangers
Rangers were easily defeated at Anfield as Liverpool sailed to a convincing victory in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
A disappointing Scottish squad provided the ideal opportunity for Jurgen Klopp’s team to get back to winning ways as Liverpool edged closer to a spot in the knockout round.
Trent Alexander-Arnold gave Liverpool the lead after just seven minutes with a well placed 25-yard free-kick that found the top corner.
Only seasoned goalkeeper Allan McGregor held the Rangers within striking distance with a series of saves that particularly frustrated Darwin Nunez.
Eight minutes after the half-time, Mohamed Salah converted a penalty when Leon King fouled Luis Diaz to give Liverpool their second goal.
Kostas Tsimikas cleared Rabbi Matondo’s shot off the line for Rangers, who have failed to get a point in each of their last three Group A games, but Liverpool overpowered them and triumphed without having to play at their best.
