Behind the scenes: Mo Salah's first day at Liverpool

Liverpool came from behind to knock AC Milan out of Europe with a 2-1 victory at San Siro on Tuesday, as goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi helped a second-string Reds side finish the Champions League group stage with a perfect record.

Milan needed to win to stand any chance of progressing to the last 16 and went in front through England defender Fikayo Tomori in the first half, to the delight of the home support.

But Salah soon equalised with his 20th goal of the season in all competitions and Origi, who came on to score a stoppage-time winner against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Saturday, headed home Liverpool’s second after the break.

Juergen Klopp’s side became the first English team to win every Champions League group game in a single campaign, finishing top of Group B with 18 points.

78 mins: I wonder if Milan are preserving energy for a final 10 minute flourish or am I being too optimistic. Tsimikas wins a free kick on the left wing and Keita switches the play out to Gomez. The visitors work it back out to the left-back and Tsimikas flicks a cross straight out of play.

75 mins: Oxlade-Chamberlain is back on the pitch after his chat with the medics. Minamino slots a pass out to Williams on the right side and he drives towards the box. Gomez comes forward and provides an overlapping option but Williams goes it alone and has a cross blocked just inside the area.

72 mins: Morton gets fouled by Kessie deep in Liverpool’s half and Oxlade-Chamberlain is down as well with what seems to be a proper problem. Morton is quickly back onto his feet but Oxlade-Chamberlain is being treated by the Liverpool medical staff off to the side of the pitch.

69 mins: Ibrahimovic is the target from a Milan corner but the cross is too high even for him. As a team that needs to win this game to stay in the Champions League, Milan have been very lacklustre.

66 mins: Alessandro Florenzi has replaced Pierre Kalulu for AC Milan. He’ll provide a more attacking option for the home team.

Origi receives the ball just outside the front edge of the box. He takes a left-footed snapshot and pulls it wide of the back post. Origi’s in good form and certainly not afraid to shoot.

60 mins: Close! Messias Jr brings the ball down the right wing then darts inside. He lays the ball off to Krunic who fires a first time shot at goal but the ball continues to rise and just flies over the crossbar. Alisson didn’t look too worried about it though.

57 mins: Big news from the other Group B game as Antoinee Griezmann has given Atletico Madrid the lead over Porto. That means, as it stands, Atletico will join Liverpool in the next round and AC Milan would finish bottom of the group.

GOAL! AC Milan 1 - 2 Liverpool (Origi, 55’)⚽️

55 mins: A mistake from Milan, punished by Origi! Milan try to work the ball out from the back and Tomori fails to bring a pass properly under control. He’s caught on the ball by Sadio Mane who nudges it into the box and blasts one at goal. Maignan keeps it out with a strong right-hand but he palms the ball over to Origi who calmly heads it into the open goal!
