John Aldridge has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Liverpool’s win against FC Midtjylland at home on Tuesday evening.
After a goalless first half, the defending Premier League champions took the lead in the 55th minute through Diogo Jota.
Trent Alexander-Arnold combined well with Xherdan Shaqiri before the right-back set up former Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Jota to tap home.
Mohamed Salah secured the points for the Reds in their second Group D game in the third minute of injury time from the penalty spot.
The Egypt international was brought down by Paulinho inside the box, and the forward made no mistake from the resulting spot-kick.
This was Jurgen Klopp’s side second successive win in the Champions League this season.
Liverpool had won 1-0 against Ajax in Amsterdam in their opening Group D match last week.
Former Liverpool striker Aldridge was following the match, and he has given his take on Twitter on the win for the Merseyside club.
