Liverpool beat AC Milan 3-2 in their Champions League opener as Jordan Henderson's stunning effort settled a classic encounter at Anfield on Wednesday.

This was only the third meeting between the second and third most successful teams in Europe -- Milan have been continental champions on seven occasions and Liverpool six times -- with the previous two having come in the 2005 and 2007 Champions League finals.

And Milan were ahead just two minutes later as they cut through Liverpool again following Rafael Leao's run.

But this was no less exciting and Liverpool retook the lead on in stunning fashion as Alexander-Arnold's corner was headed clear by Bennacer but only as far as Henderson who hit a perfect half volley into the corner.

Liverpool were level two minutes later as Salah finished off a neat one-two with Divock Origi.

Liverpool had the chance to double their lead on 14 minutes when referee Szymon Marciniak pointed to the spot following a handball by Ismael Bennacer, but Mohamed Salah's penalty was impressively saved by Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan.

Jurgen Klopp made a raft of changes with Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane starting on the substitutes bench, but his side raced out of the blocks and took a deserved lead on nine minutes as Trent Alexander-Arnold's effort went in following a deflection off Fikayo Tomori.
