TRENT ALREADY HAS A PLAN HOW TO STOP MAN CITY NEXT SEASON, HE EXPLAINS IT IN HIS RECENT INTERVIEW
Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold understands that his team will have to strive for excellence if they wish to challenge Manchester City in the pursuit of the Premier League title.
In the previous season, Liverpool, led by the talented English international, encountered difficulties in keeping up with the dominant Sky Blues. After competing for all four titles in the 2021/22 campaign, the Merseyside outfit finished fifth in the league table, while Pep Guardiola’s Cityzens secured their third consecutive English top-flight trophy. Moreover, City ended the season on a high note by triumphing in the Champions League and completing the treble.
Despite Liverpool’s underwhelming performance, Trent expressed his confidence in the team’s ability to challenge City in the upcoming season, drawing from their previous successful encounters. The full-back firmly believes that the Reds possess the capability to reclaim their position at the top.
“We have a deep understanding of what it takes to win the league and compete against City. It requires us to maintain a high level of performance throughout the entire season. That is our primary focus,” Trent stated during an interview with Sky Sports.
Manchester City, under Guardiola’s guidance, has constructed a formidable side. Over the past six years, Liverpool has been the only team capable of surpassing the Sky Blues to claim the league title. The Anfield side finally put an end to their Premier League trophy drought in the 2019/20 season.
As the transfer window progresses, it would not be surprising to witness City further bolstering their squad. However, Liverpool must also pay attention to the challenges posed by Arsenal, Manchester United, and Newcastle United. Consequently, Trent and his team must undertake a significant turnaround in the upcoming season. The English international’s performances in the previous campaign were largely uninspiring.
Nonetheless, Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, managed to extract the best from the 24-year-old by deploying him in a hybrid role, where Trent dropped back into the midfield. He thrived in a similar position while representing the Three Lions recently.
With hopes for additional reinforcements to the squad, such as the acquisitions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, Liverpool aims to avoid another season outside the top four. The Reds are determined to reclaim their position as one of the elite teams in English football.
