In the 47th minute of this evening’s Premier League tie between Liverpool and Sheffield United, Trent Alexander-Arnold battled to create a chance for the Reds.After seeing a long-range strike blocked, the right-back pounced on a loose ball and charged down to the byline under pressure from Enda Stevens.Alexander-Arnold managed to fire a cross into the box, which was cleared, but spilled into the path of Curtis Jones, the midfield composed himself before tucking the ball into the bottom corner.A VAR check followed to deem whether the entire ball was out of play when the cross was produced, but it was a nice surprise to see a quick investigation for once and the goal stood.See More: Video: Unconvincing Liverpool defender Ozan Kabak saved by offside flag after beating Adrian with shambolic own goal
Liverpool have the lead! ?
Sheffield United thought it went out but the VAR rules the goal as legitimate. A smart finish from Curtis Jones.
