Alexander-Arnold, in his first league start since Feb. 10, curled a stunning free kick into the top corner in the 32nd minute that keeper Bernd Leno had little chance of stopping.

It was the England international’s sixth direct free-kick goal.

In a title fight with no room for error, Alexander-Arnold called the victory “huge”.
