Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold wasn’t impressed by Jordan Henderson’s free-kick attempt in the first half against Newcastle United on Saturday. Alexander-Arnold was caught watching a highlight of Henderson’s effort and laughing on the bench during the first half at St. James’ Park.

Jurgen Klopp rang the changes for the Reds’ trip to Newcastle, making five switches from Wednesday’s 2-0 win against Villarreal in the Champions League semi-finals. Liverpool controlled large sections of the opening periods and took the lead before the 20-minute mark through Naby Keita.

Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold were included in Klopp’s bold changes as he looks to maintain the fitness of his squad during a full-speed period of the season. So when Liverpool were awarded a free-kick in a dangerous position midway through the half, many pondered who would step up to the plate.

The successful candidate was captain Henderson, who isn’t especially known for his free-kick-taking prowess. And, somewhat predictably, the 31-year-old blazed his effort over the Newcastle wall and the crossbar, much to the home crowd’s delight, given his Sunderland links.
