Diogo Jota’s strike not only helped give Liverpool a 2-0 win at home to Midtjylland, but it brought up the Reds’ landmark goal across all competitions on Tuesday.
Alexander-Arnold provided the assist for Jota’s 55th-minute opener before substitute Mohamed Salah sealed the Group D points from the penalty spot in the third minute of stoppage time.
After scoring the 10,000th goal, Jota told BT Spor t: “Well it’s a start. Obviously I’m happy to score and to help the team to achieve the win. Achieving that mark is always a good thing but I’m more happy with the victory today.
“After a good away win, it’s important to keep on adding points and we did our job. We get the three points, that’s most important, and now we [need to be] ready for the next game.”
Victory over Midtjylland means Liverpool FC have the maximum six points from their first two Champions League fixtures, having beaten Ajax 1-0 in Amsterdam last week.
