Trent Alexander-Arnold Insists A Lot Can Happen Between Now And May In The Race For The Premier League Title

Liverpool are 11 points behind leaders Manchester City after drawing at Chelsea and being beaten at Leicester City in their last two Premier League matches.

Alexander-Arnold recognises Liverpool’s title ambitions rest on City slipping up, but he stressed the importance of the Reds returning to winning ways to put pressure on their rivals.

The England full-back also highlighted how he thought Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea was a fair result on the balance of play.

“There’s not really much we can do except try to win as many games as we can between now and the end of the season,” Alexander-Arnold told Liverpoolfc.com .

“We are just past the halfway point so a lot can happen between now and May.

“We make sure we focus on ourselves, make sure we stay as close to them as we can, but it will be difficult and we need teams to beat them for us.

“But it’s about us making sure we are in a position to capitalise if they do drop points.”

Liverpool looked to be on their way to three points at Stamford Bridge after racing into a two goal lead thanks to Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

However, Chelsea equalised on the stroke of half-time and Alexander Arnold believes the draw was fair.

“We started the game well and it was what we set out to do, we had a game plan and we did that first half,” Alexander-Arnold added.

“Probably not everything we set out to do but we scored two quite early goals.

“Going 2-0 up was obviously what we wanted, and then last five or 10 minutes of the first half we took our foot off the gas and let them back in.

“That first goal, no-one is in the changing room pointing fingers or anything, there’s nothing you can do about them, a world-class strike.

“The second one, there were a couple of mistakes and it could have been prevented but they took their chances and we took ours. At the end of the day it was a fair and even point.”
