Trent Alexander-Arnold says Liverpool’s front three should strike fear into Everton players’ hearts in an interview with Liverpoolfc.com.
The Blues are languishing just above the relegation zone and haven’t won a game since the end of September, drawing two and losing six in their last eight Premier League games.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are entering a strong run of form which has seen them score eight goals in their last two Premier League games. This was largely down to the form of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota.
Between them, they have scored 19 goals in their last 10 games and are the life force of Jurgen Klopp’s attacking side.
Jota was particularly potent in the 4-0 win over Southampton, and he also scored against Arsenal in the Reds’ previous game. His nickname ‘DioGOAL’ is as appropriate as it is clever.
You can’t forget Trent Alexander-Arnold as well as Andy Robertson while Kostas Tsimikas deserves an honourable mention, as Liverpool’s flying full-backs are vital to the speed and accuracy of their attacks.
Trent, in particular, is a danger to sides and he already has nine assists this season.
Speaking to Liverpool’s official website, the full-back, who reportedly earns £160,000 per week, said that Everton will be very aware of the danger the Reds pose, especially with the Blues in such poor form.
He said: “Everton will be looking to bounce back, they suffered a defeat that they probably won’t be too happy with on the weekend, so they will probably have a little bit more motivation to bounce back and want to do it in front of the home fans.
“But that’s football, every team has them little bits of motivation – we are a top, top team so every team wants to beat us. But I’m also sure they will be worried about what we can do going the other way.
“The form that the front three are in at the minute is frightening; goals and the way they are contributing and linking up together, and the way the team is gelling at the minute is looking very good for us and I’m sure they will be watching our analysis with a little bit of fear in them.”
