Liverpool had long since secured progression as Champions League group winners when they made the trip to the San Siro to face AC Milan, but a much-changed team was nonetheless able to claim victory. In doing so, they became the first English side to complete the group stage with a flawless record.
Things got off to an inauspicious start when Milan took the lead on the half-hour mark, but there was no surprise about the source of the Liverpool equaliser. The provider of the winning goal was not a huge surprise, either: the man of the moment, Divock Origi, came up with the goods again.
This accomplished victory for a largely second-string side made a mockery of the so-called ‘group of death’, and reaffirmed the deceptive squad depth at the disposal of Jürgen Klopp. Young players and fringe players alike showed signs that they have what it takes to contribute to the team.
