Liverpool can defeat any rival - Alexander-Arnold

The England star believes the fun will begin in the next round of UCL.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold believes the team can beat all rivals in the Champions League.

Liverpool, who had already advanced to the knockout stages, faced Midtjylland last night and ended in a 1-1 draw, and the 22-year-old star wore the club's captain's armband for the first time. But the highlight of last night was the finalized of the other climbing teams.

In the next round, Liverpool could be pitted against either Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Borussia Monchengladbach, Porto, Sevilla, Lazio, or Leipzig. Despite the problematic draws ahead, Arnold is not afraid of competitors.

He said:

“Now the fun begins really. The knockout stages, this is where the best teams perform and get through. I think on our day we’ll be able to beat anyone."

Arnold, who reached the first team from Liverpool Academy, added on his first experience as a captain:

“Obviously it’s always been a dream, it’s always special to play on Champions League nights."

“To lead the team out was incredibly proud, it was something that was different, new to me. It was special, it felt special out there.

“An extremely proud moment for me and the people who have helped me do that.

“You’ve obviously got to give thanks to the manager and the staff who chose me to captain the team.

“It was a really proud night for me on a personal note. I think I’ll look back (with) fond memories as being captain for the first time.”
