Alexander-Arnold hopes for a miracle for Liverpool against Real Madrid

Unable to build on their historical 7-0 victory over Man United, Liverpool was beaten by the Premier League's bottom side Bournemouth on Saturday. The Reds' fullback hopes for a miracle as they try to turn around a 5-2 Anfield defeat to Real Madrid on Wednesday.

After their record victory over Manchester United, Liverpool was beaten 1-0 by Bournemouth as Philip Biling's first half remained the game's only goal. Mohamed Salah missed a penalty in the second half as they chased a goal at Vitality Stadium. It's the first time since the 2010-11 season that the Reds have lost consecutive league games against sides bottom of the table.

Conceding the result was unacceptable, Trent Alexander-Arnold said: "This is the time of the season when everyone knows what they are fighting for and obviously Bournemouth are in a relegation battle, so they are fighting for survival.

"But every team in the league is fighting for something, so it means a lot to get the three points and I think looking back on it now, they probably wanted it more than us.

"That is something that is unacceptable and we need to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen again."

Liverpool will face Real Madrid on Wednesday in their final game before the international break aiming to overturn a 5-2 deficit.

"It's a huge one for us," Alexander-Arnold said of that showdown with the reigning Spanish and European champions. "It's one that we need to go and do something special.

"All our focus is solely on that Real Madrid game now and it means that we can put everything into that game knowing that we've got days afterwards to recover.

"It's about throwing the kitchen sink at it and going all out and I think that's what we're going to do – it's important to do that. Then we'll get ready for an important run-in."
