Fabinho had options left and right, but instead opted to break the lines with a decisive forward pass to Oxlade-Chamberlain. The midfielder did the rest with a fine right-footed finish.

Alisson makes a brilliant save

Another straight ball over the top of the Liverpool defence from Cuesta sees Onuachu burst in behind the visitors’ backline. The attacker looks for the bottom corner from the centre of the box, but Alisson gets down quickly to his right to deny Genk an equalising goal.

Disallowed! Samatta scores but the goal is offside

Samatta had the ball in the back of the net after meeting Ito’s cross at the far post, but, after consulting VAR, the goal was ruled out for an offside in the build-up.

GOAL! Genk 0-3 Liverpool (Mane)
