Liverpool 3 AC Milan 2 LIVE REACTION: Salah, Henderson and Tomori OG give Reds victory in Champions League classic

LIVERPOOL and AC Milan played out a Champions League thriller under the lights at Anfield.

Fikayo Tomori's own goal had the Reds ahead early on, and it could have been more but Mo Salah saw his penalty saved.

And Liverpool were made to pay as Andre Rebic and Brahim Diaz netted in a crazy two minutes just before the break.

But Salah wasn't to be denied and moments into the second half drew the Reds level, before Jordan Henderson's stunning volley completed the turnaround.

    CAPTAIN TALKS

    Tonight's match-winner gives his thoughts on tonight's game.

    It was his first goal in this competition since 2014!

    It was a good game, good for the neutrals definitely.
    It was nice having the fans back, the atmosphere was amazing.
    It was nice to get back on the scoresheet too, it’s something I have been working on in that position.

    HOW WE STAND

    An early look at the Group B table.

    It finished goalless in the other game between Atletico and Porto.

    Liverpool top the group.

    ROBBO REACTS

    The Scotland skipper gives his reaction after the game.

    There wasn’t much to sort at half-time.
    The space in front of the defence got bigger and they managed to pick spaces.
    It was important to fix that at half-time. When you play in this tournament, when these teams smell blood they normally take it.
    It was tough but we enjoyed it again in the second-half and got a deserved win.

    THE WINNER

    A Liverpool skipper smashing in a winner in the Champions League from the edge of the box, eh.

    FT: LIVERPOOL 3-2 AC MILAN

    Some game this one!

    Liverpool lead and went behind before eventually coming out on top in matchday one.

    Alexander-Arnold's first half strike had the Reds in front through a wicked deflection off Tomori.

    Salah had the chance to make it two from the spot but that was saved.

    And in the few minutes before HT, Milan remarkably went in front.

    First Rebic then Brahim Diaz bagging in the space of two minutes.

    But Liverpool wasted no time in the second-half to draw level through Salah.

    Before captain Henderson's peach from the edge of the box handed them all three points.
