Liverpool’s 2-0 Champions League victory over Porto may not have been the most enthralling encounter the Reds will be involved in this season, but it was illuminated by Thiago Alcântara’s beautiful long-range strike.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain crossed a free-kick to the edge of the penalty box, only to see Otávio head the ball clear.

But there have already been four this season in the league, and Thiago’s Porto goal was the third in the Champions League.

That leaves Sadio Mané’s goal against Arsenal, where he got his head to a free-kick cross from Alexander-Arnold, as the one set play goal Liverpool have scored this season which you would view as created in the traditional manner of delivery, goal.

However, the goal from Thiago continued a theme that has run through the Reds’ 2021/22 campaign and started in their opening match.

Thiago’s goal is not the furthest travelled successful shot Liverpool have had this season, though the current leader was also against Porto.

The season is still fairly young though, and the relative lack of assisted set-piece goals could easily swing back in the other direction.
