This weekend Liverpool needed a win. The Reds were beaten comfortably in Madrid in midweek, making a top four finish more vital than ever. Jürgen Klopp’s side left it late but they just about did enough to beat Aston Villa. Trent Alexander-Arnold showed he is ready to move to centre midfield.
Liverpool beat Aston Villa
This weekend saw Liverpool beat Aston Villa in a game which bore a striking resemblance to last season’s tie with the midlands club.
The Reds dominated throughout but found themselves a goal behind in the first half.
Much like last season’s tie at Villa Park, Liverpool were denied an equaliser by VAR in controversial circumstances.
However, also like last season’s tie, the Reds snatched the points with an injury time winner.

Leading up to the goal the Scouser drove through the middle and exchanged passes to find himself in the box.

It was an instinctive passage of play learned from the Scouser’s years spent playing in the middle.
This was a passage of play which showed Trent Alexander-Arnold is ready to move into centre midfield.
He’s dominated games from out wide for long enough, if he’s going to net goals through the middle then make the switch.
