Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold unwilling to give up on the Premier League
Trent Alexander-Arnold was one of the few positives for Liverpool in the Reds’ 2-1 win against Leicester City. Two own goals from Wout Faes meant that the Reds stood handed the win on a plate. In an otherwise mediocre performance, the Scouser alongside Darwin Nunez and Thiago Alcantara stood out as the best players on the pitch wearing Red.
With this win, Liverpool are on a four-match winning streak in the Premier League. Currently 12 points adrift from the top of the table, the Reds would hope for their winning run to continue into 2023 as well.
That is what Trent talks about as well. Liverpool need to secure for themselves a top-four spot to cement themselves in the UEFA Champions League next season and get on board a midfielder or two.
Speaking to Sky Sports via BBC, here is what the 23-year-old told them about the Reds’ hopes and ambitions for the rest of the season:
“We’re realistic, the aim going into the season is always to win the league, or at least be in and around it, like last season – pushing City to the final day.
“I think, right now, when you look at it, we’re 15 points behind Arsenal, so you’re hoping for a miracle.”
Long season to go
Referring to how the Reds pushed Manchester City until the final day of last season, Trent talked about how the primary aim is always to win the league but at the same time, he admitted that it is still a far fetch.
Furthermore, he termed the Reds winning the league from this point on as like ‘hoping for a miracle’. Indeed it is, as a major chunk of the season is still pending and it is not easy to keep up the same level of consistency in an injury-prone side like ours.
Having said that, Trent will be absolutely essential in Liverpool’s chase for a Champions League spot. The threat of Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and even Newcastle United now still looms and it certainly will not be an easy task.

In the meantime, the rest of the Reds would certainly hope to introspect about what did not go their way except for the two own goals against Leicester and try to better that performance. Nonetheless, we are the mighty Liverpool and there is always a way out when we have a figure like Jurgen Klopp at the helm.
