The pair tussled for the ball on the flank after the Los Blancos star had tried to move past Alexander Arnold with a stepover. He then slowed down to allow his opponent to lunge in for a tackle.

As Alexander-Arnold stuck his leg out to win the ball, though, Vinicius Jr knocked it forward to race clear and leave the Englishman chasing after him.

Fans were quick to mock the Liverpool man on social media after the incident, with one tweeting: "Vini toying with Trent like a piece of meat." Another added: "Vinicius is torturing Trent tonight."
