Alexander-Arnold wants victory against City, Chelsea and Arsenal
Liverpool will face Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal in eight days as they push for a top-four place. The Reds' right-back believes these three games "define" their season.
Sitting sixth in the Premier League table, Liverpool had a difficult campaign so far this season. They are already eliminated from every cup competition and are seven points behind fourth-placed Tottenham. Pushing for Champions League qualification, Trent Alexander-Arnold hopes his team can get good results in their next three games against Man City, Chelsea, and Arsenal.
"I think if we get three big results, it's game on really, and hopefully the season pushes on to be a good one,"
he told Liverpool's official website.
"These three results can define the season if we let it and if we want it to. We want to go out there and win all three games – and that's our plan.
"I think as a team we've probably lacked that confidence at times during the season. But to go and get big results against big teams will instill that confidence back within us. We're excited as a team, we're looking fresh, good in training and we're excited. It's going to be a big week and then hopefully a big end to the season for us."
On their game against Man City, who are chasing Arsenal in the title race, Alexander-Arnold added: "
Every time you play against Man City, the motivation's there no matter what.
"Over the past five, six years, I would say us and them have been the best teams in the league, and they show their quality year in, year out and consistently. They're always up there as one of, if not the best team in the world.
"That'll be the same on Saturday. We need to play a really good game and execute our game plan to have a chance of winning it. I think we're able to go there and get the result but it's about making sure we earn it."
Luis Diaz is back in training for the Reds after sustaining a knee injury in their defeat against Arsenal in October. Alexander-Arnold said about the former Porto man:
"He's a top player, a top lad.
"It's been a tough season for him to see him out so much. But he's back, he's back smiling, he's enjoying his football, so that's all you can ask [for].
"With a player like that, he brings enthusiasm to the team and brings a spark that not many players have. It's exciting to have him back."
