Alexander-Arnold sent the Anfield faithful into raptures with his simply astonishing strike past the helpless Martin Dubravka in front of the Kop Stand.
From 25 yards out, the right-back struck the ball cleanly before watching it fly like a rocket into the back of the net.
Speaking of his wondergoal, the England international said: “I’ve been waiting five years for that!
“I’ve had a few ones from the edge of box and dragged them.
“I’ve caught that one sweet and it nestled in the top corner, a sweet strike and put the game to bed.”
Unsurprisingly, the sensational late goal drew comparisons to Steven Gerrard‘s own effort against Olympiacos in the Champions League way back in December 2004, and the whole moment is even more epic with Andy Gray’s iconic commentary to accompany it.
Over to Gray himself to do the honours: “OHHHH YA BEAUTY. WHAT A HIT SON. WHAT A HIT.”
Couldn’t have put it better ourselves if we tried.

After the game, he said: “It was a stunner, unbelievable. His shooting technique is absolutely different level.
“In games like this, staying positive, staying offensive-minded in moments like this, just take the chance.
“Thank God Mike Dean is good on his legs so he could get out of the way!”
He added: “I told him it was the best long ball he played today! Absolutely crazy goal.
“His shooting technique is a different level and really cool to watch.”
