Gorgeous free kick, we know he has that in his locker. Looked comfortable today on the whole.

It was a wonderful free kick, well in Trent that should fill him with confidence.

Great having a free kick specialist of sorts in the team.

Needs to get more though as today's and Hoffenheim one are the only ones so far.
Lol. He’d better score at least one per month, right?

Great free kick.

He was giving the ball away a lot in the first half, didn't look very sharp.

I agree he was giving the ball away but he was attempting final balls a lot, apart from the brain fart when he just misfit the ball.
He's basically a deep winger a lot of the time
He sees and plays inside passes to the forwards which destroys opposition cbs.
I dream of a team of Daniel Aggers!

I think he still has more in his locker and is playing within himself. Would love him to take his opposite full back on a bit more often.
One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ‘Liverpool’. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

Thought both him and Robbo had poor first halfs, improved in the 2nd. Great goal though.  A local kid and nailed down a regular spot at such a young age.  Will be a pleasure to watch him grow and see what he can become.  We have 2 great young full backs who can/should both become among the worlds elite.

In fairness, he didn't say that. Hoping a 'free kick specialist' can score more than 1 goal from a free kick in just over a year isn't that ridiculous at all.

Can't remember the exact number but a few weeks or so ago someone on Twitter had the stats for how many shots from free-kicks he's actually taken, and it wasn't many at all.

Interesting you mention it. This is one of the reasons I want Camacho to make it here and hope he gets a shot if Clyne leaves. Against a low block - having someone who will attack it from the side, commit people, and pull central players out to deal with the threat is important. Camacho has that in spades.

I remember Trent doing that once - against Burnley when Solanke hit the bar. It's rare though.

I felt he was regressing slightly, and the first half was just more of that... but cracking goal and he really stepped up afterwards, lets hope it continues!

He's hit the post a couple of times this season itself. That's despite sharing the free kicks with Shaq & Mo.

If you are talking about carrying and dribbling with the ball then he did that against Hoffenheim as well away last season. We need to see even more of that as he has it in his locker.

Always nice to have a home grown in the first 11. Now we have 2 as well when Gomez is playing. In comparison, City, Chelsea have none.

I think the challenge in the next couple of years is to keep hold of players like these and not to lose them to c*nts like Madrid and Barcelona.

No one should really be calling him a free kick specialist at this stage though. You become a free kick specialist by scoring loads of them. Right now we just know he has it in his locker  :)

I wonder if his long term future in the team is further up the park (even centrally) as he def shows his best when going forward and that goal again was pure class. Unlike Robertson you can see he struggles when doing the basics as once he starts to backpedal the opposition can get at him / the team through his channels. Still very young as four years younger than Robertson (who's only 24 himself) so you have to wonder how good the lad can be as he continues to develop.

Hopefully not injured and he can put Rashford in his pocket at the weekend.
