    IN THE HISTORY BOOKS

    Diogo Jota’s goal was Liverpool’s 10,000th scored in their history in all competitions, coming 128 years after their first, netted by Jock Smith in September 1892 in the Lancashire League.

    ON TOP

    Liverpool are sitting pretty at the top of the group with two wins from two!

    Atalanta and Ajax drew 2-2 tonight, leaving Atalanta on four points from an available six and Ajax in third on one point.

    Midtjylland sit rock bottom.

    FULL-TIME STATS

    Liverpool ramped up the pressure in the second half and they started to move the ball a lot quicker.

    63 per cent of possession for the Reds is no surprise, the lack of shots on goal however was.

    FT: LIVERPOOL 2-0 MIDTJYLLAND

    Liverpool found a way in the end and it was orchestrated by Trent Alexander-Arnold, the right-back made a lovely run in behind the Midtjylland defence to set up Jota's opener.

    Alexander-Arnold would also set Salah off running towards goal in the 90th minute in a move which saw Liverpool win a penalty.

    Fair play to Midtjylland, they put in a good performance and it was one to be proud of….. they had their chances and limited the defending Premier League champions to just TWO shots on target.

    Quality sees Klopp's men through to two wins from two in the Champions league group stage!

    PEEEEEEP!

    THAT'S FULL-TIME!

    90+1. Heartbreak for Midtjylland right at the death, they had a massive opportunity to equalise moments earlier which Dreyer missed.

    Liverpool go up the other end and win a penalty which Salah blasted straight down the middle.

    Game over.

    GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!

    SALAH DOUBLES LIVERPOOL'S LEAD FROM THE SPOT!!

    GAME OVER!!

    PENALTY!

    89. Alexander-Arnold slips Mo Salah through on goal, he tries to go round the keeper but is brought down by a defender.

    Salah to take.

    JUST WIDE!

    88. Midtjylland almost equalise right at the death!

    It's wonderful build-up play down the right hand-side, the ball finds its way to Dreyer on the edge of the area, he glides past Gomez with a fake shot before sending a floated effort into the side netting!

    LIVERPOOL 1-0 MIDTJYLLAND

    AWFUL MISS!

    87. Milner picks out an unmarked Alexander-Arnold inside the penalty area, he hesitates to shoot and instead pulls it back to Firmino on the penalty spot who scuffs his shot over the bar!

    HAS TO DO BETTER!

    LIVERPOOL 1-0 MIDTJYLLAND

    85. Five minutes remaining at the end of the second half, Liverpool are cruising towards a second straight win in the Champions League group stages.

    But then again, never say never, Midtjylland could come up with a moment of magic and find an equaliser.

    83. Wonderful build-up play by Midtjylland and it's a wonderful cross from the right hand-side by Andersson.

    His cross lands on the head of the newly introduced Luca Pfeiffer who couldn't guide his header on target.

    81. Still just the one shot on target for Liverpool, even the introduction of Salah and Mane hasn't changed their fortunes.

    79. Salah gallops inside off the right hand-side past Onyeka, he shapes up to bend his shot into the top left corner but it floats over the crossbar.

    We've seen Salah hit the back of the net on many occasions from a similar position.

    JUST WIDE!

    76. Evander controls Kaba's cross from the left wing, he turns inside the penalty area and manages to pull the trigger but his shot flashes wide of the far post!

    Alisson was caught flat footed, what a chance that was to equalise.

    75. Andersson steamed down the right hand-side, he tried to play it into Dreyer but his pass comes up short.

    73. Encouraging from Midtjylland, the ball breaks to Evander, he opens up his body and tries to bend a shot into the far corner but it has too much power on it and it goes comfortably over Alisson's crossbar.

    72. A very exciting player who is one to watch for the future is coming on, Evander replaces Sisto.

    The 22-year-old will slot in behind Kaba, manager Brian Priske is looking for a hero and this lad could be the man.

    LIVERPOOL 1-0 MIDTJYLLAND

    71. Andersson floats a ball into the penalty area and it is met by Kaba but his first touch lets him down, he plays the ball back with his second touch to maintain possession.

    Decent build-up from the visitors.

    LIVERPOOL 1-0 MIDTJYLLAND

    69. 457 passes completed by the home side and 63 per cent possession. Midtjylland have done an awful lot of running and they're looking tired.

    LIVERPOOL 1-0 MIDTJYLLAND

    66. Tricky run by Shaqiri as he skipped past Scholz inside the Midtjylland penalty area, Paulinho got across to stick a foot in and bring the attack to a stop.

    Liverpool are looking a lot more threatening in the second half, there's a lot more running going on at the top end of the pitch.

    I wonder what Klopp said to his team at half-time.

    65. Midtjylland make a change, Mikael Anderson is on replacing Mabil who was largely ineffective.

    TIDY FINISH

    Jota finished off a well worked attack, keeper was nowhere to be seen!

    62. Liverpool win a free-kick just inside the opposition half, they've cranked up the pressure and it looks like the flood gates could open!

    The Reds look stable at the back and deadly up front with Salah and Mane in attack.
