Alexander-Arnold's free kick UCL goal "a thing of dreams"

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is happy to be bringing a lead back to Anfield for the second leg of their Champions League play-off against Hoffenheim despite another late defensive lapse.

The only criticism of their attacking flair was that they didn't produce the number of goals they should have, and against a better side they could have been made to pay for that - they could still if Hoffenheim cause a shock at Anfield.

It is three years since the Anfield outfit, five times European champions, last graced the group stage of the continent's elite club competition.

As they trained out on the pitch of the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena, Liverpool looked relaxed ahead of the challenge they face in Tuesday's first leg.

James MIlner saw a cross deflect into the net via Håvard Nordtveit on 74 minutes with Mark Uth scoring a consolation for the Bundesliga side on 87 minutes.

"He has to say that and defend his team, he won't say 'Hoffenheim played so well and we were s...'", Nagelsmann said. Hoffenheim are really hard to play against because they have a plan and do it.

Liverpool is without its star player Philippe Coutinho, who is still linked with a move to Barcelona after submitting a transfer request, but that is not concerning Klopp.

Milner then doubled the lead after coming off the bench, to score a deflected cross in the 74th minute after Liverpool took a quick free-kick in controversial circumstances.

Liverpool threatened to grab a third as the game entered its final 10 minutes, Firmino's unsafe low cross cut out by Baumann - but Hoffenheim kept their hopes alive with three minutes left when Uth chested down a long pass and thumped a finish beyond Mignolet.

"We gambled a little too much on the wing, it was a little unsafe in the first half, but as always when we play football, we found spaces in-between and created wonderful chances", said Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BT Sport.

However, Juergen Klopp's men nearly shocked the hosts again but Dejan Lovren's header missed the goal narrowly in the dying seconds of the first half.

"I kind of got egged on to take the free-kick, to be honest", said the Liverpool-born teenager making only his 14th senior appearance for the club.
