Watch: Trent Alexander-Arnold almost scores a volley for the ages


Trent Alexander-Arnold almost scored a volley for the ages during Liverpool‘s 1-1 draw with Newcastle in the Premier League. 

Last season’s champions needed a win to maintain their challenge for Champions League qualification but a 95th-minute equaliser from Joe Willock denied them all three points.

While most of the post-match analysis focused upon Liverpool’s wastefulness in front of goal, our attention was drawn to a Matt Le Tissier-esque effort from Alexander-Arnold.

Newcastle nervously headed away a corner with 15 minutes to go but it fell straight to Thiago Alcantara. The midfielder teed the ball up in such a way that it would have been rude not to attempt a volley.

Which is exactly what Alexander-Arnold did. Connecting with the ball perfectly, the England full-back sent a fizzing shot just past Martin Dubravka’s right-hand post.

We were just inches away from witnessing one of the best goals of this, or any other, season.
