Trent Alexander-Arnold has sent a message to Barcelona on social media ahead of the Champions League semi finals.
Liverpool breezed into the last four with a 6-1 aggregate win over Porto, capped off with a 1-4 win in Portugal.
The win means Liverpool will face Barcelona in the semi final in a few weeks’ time. After the victory at the Estádio do Dragão, Alexander-Arnold sent a defiant message to Messi and co on Twitter.

Trent’s message simply said: ‘Bring on the semis!’, showing zero fear and a real appetite for the upcoming tie.
The tie will see Liverpool come up against former players in Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho.

The return of these two former stars of Anfield will add an extra bit of spice to the fixture, which already looks like a gem.
Throw into the equation the small matter of Lionel Messi, and it is certainly a tie to get excited about.
However, Liverpool will fancy their chances and will not fear anyone as they hone in on a second consecutive final.
Liverpool have been strong in both attack and defence this season, and their front three will cause Barcelona problems.
Virgil van Dijk has been lauded as the best defender in the world this year, and the tie will certainly test him, too.
Trent will also have a key role in keeping Coutinho quiet as well as providing an attacking outlet.
It’s a real clash of the titans, and is very hard to call at this stage.
However, Liverpool will be up for it and should they make the final, stand a great chance of being crowned champions.
