Liverpool look certain to claw their way back to the pinnacles of their glorious past. The club’s revamp certainly took its sweet time to pay off, with even Jurgen Klopp’s project appearing shaky in its initial months.

However, with a Champions League title under their belt, the Merseyside giants are now an attractive side yet again. In fact, fans now have their hopes up high and are eyeing that elusive Premier League title now, having narrowly missed it last season.

Currently, they sit undefeated at the top of the table and have a considerable amount of matchdays left before their dream can be achieved.

Liverpool have risen to this height by constantly adapting and learning from their flaws and this can perhaps be best illustrated through their excellent youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold.


What Trent Alexander-Arnold Told SAF When The Scot Tried To Sign Him

While speaking to The Athletic, the 21-year-old English right-back revealed how Liverpool’s 2-1 loss to Manchester United last season was his toughest encounter against a team.

In particular, Marcus Rashford, whose brace won United the game, gave him a hard time during that fixture. Trent Alexander-Arnold recollects the game by stating: “Yeah, the toughest in terms of a direct opponent and someone getting on top of me in professional football. I’d say I underestimated him. It was a massive learning curve for me.”

He goes on to add: “It was something that I hated happening. As a Liverpool player, it’s probably the worst game of the season to perform like that. But when things like that happen you have to learn from them.”

The process of rising stronger is evident in him as he memorably displayed during the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona last season, wherein his quickly-taken corner-kick, and Divock Origi’s eventual goal made all the difference in the end.

Lot more to come from this promising Englishman.
