Liverpool news Trent Alexander-Arnold sends Liverpool warning to Premier League rivals PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Liverpool are desperate to qualify for the 2021/22 Champions League and Trent Alexander-Arnold has spelled out what he believes they need to do in order to get there.
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Liverpool’s hopes of finishing in the Premier League’s top four this season have not been extinguished entirely, but it will not take much for them to disappear into the ether. Going into their match with Southampton on Saturday evening, the Reds are seventh in the league and seven points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea, albeit they have a game in hand thanks to the postponement of their clash with Manchester United. Football prediction model FiveThirtyEight gives Jurgen Klopp’s side a 37 percent chance of securing Champions League qualification this season, and they forecast that Liverpool will finish fifth. While it seems unlikely that they will be able to get past all of the teams standing in their way – though Tottenham’s defeat to Leeds in the early kick-off on Saturday will have helped – all the Reds can do is try to win their remaining five matches and see where it takes them.

For right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, his side have no margin for error. He has been speaking to the official Liverpool website and explained that five wins out five simply must be the target if Liverpool are to secure a top four finish. “Things have to go our way and it’s not really in our hands, but we need to put ourselves in a position where if other teams slip up then we’re ready to pounce,” he said. “Looking at certain teams’ fixtures, you’d like to hope they’ll drop points around us and we’ll be ready to slip in there. But we can’t really rest on that, you’ve just got to go for it and hope that it works out.

. He also knows all-too-well the threat which Southampton will pose in the first of the quintet of matches, as he made a defensive error for their winning goal when the sides met on the south coast in January. “They’re really energetic, do things as a unit, full of life, character and a never-give-up attitude. They’re an exceptional team, some really good players.

“You look at the strike force that they’ve got, the speed up front, the way they like to play balls in behind and get in behind opponents – that will be something to look out for, for us. “And the way that they press is also really good, so we need to watch out for that as well. It will be an interesting game, I’m sure it’ll be full of energy and it’ll be a high-intensity game.” Liverpool’s chances of victory will be aided by the absence of their former forward Danny Ings through injury, but it promises to be a difficult test for the Reds. Alexander-Arnold and his colleagues will need to perform well if they are to tick off the first of their remaining five matches with three points.
