Alexander-Arnold sets Liverpool’s ultimate goal – but knows Premier League truth

Liverpool want to write more history – by winning the Premier League and Champions League in the same season.

Jurgen Klopp’s men want to do even than the last two years, being crowned Kings of Europe in 2019 and lifting the title this summer.

Trent Alexander-Arnold said: “Now that we’ve won them both, we want to win them both in the same season and, who knows, this is the season that we could do that.”

But despite the bold ambitions, Alexander-Arnold fears this season will be much harder to win the title and it also promises to be a much more open race.

Liverpool ended 18 points ahead of second-place Manchester City last season and he said: “It’s doubtful that we’ll reach the levels we hit and the dominance we had last year. It’ll be difficult to do that. We might have to wait a long time for another team to dominate so much.

Alexander-Arnold lived a lifelong dream by lifting the Premier League

“There’s been so many shocks so far, it’s going to be that type of season, it’s like that anyway because any team can beat anyone in the Prem.

“It’s just that it’s coming to light a lot more.

“Without being overly critical or disrespectful, it was only really us and City capable of winning it last season but this time you’ve probably got five or six who can push on and be part of the title race.

Alexander-Arnold wants Liverpool to lift trophies again

“But it’s the Premier League. Eight or nine games in means nothing. You’ve got to do it for 38.”

Liverpool go to Brighton in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off, although Alexander-Arnold is still sidelined with the muscle issue he picked up in the draw at Manchester City earlier this month.
