Trent Alexander-Arnold Says Liverpool Can Win Premier League Title This Season: ‘We Believe’

Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold believes his team can mount a serious challenge to win the Premier League title this season.

The Reds have taken 27 points from their opening 12 league games, losing just once – a controversial 2-1 defeat at Tottenham in September.

That impressive start came after Liverpool finished in fifth place last season – 22 points below champions Manchester City.

But an away win at City on Saturday would see Liverpool go top of the table.

Speaking ahead of that game, Alexander-Arnold said this week: “We are in a really strong position.

“Results and form-wise, we are doing enough to stay as close as possible to the top of the table.”

He added: “So far we’ve performed in a way that is how you would expect someone who can win the league to perform and if we carry this on, we should be in and around it come May.

“If that wasn’t the case, I would be here saying, ‘I want to get back in the top four’. Because, genuinely, there is nothing wrong with that for this team, a team that has just finished outside the Champions League places.

“There is a rebuild going on, a lot of senior players have left, and it would be very normal to say, ‘Get back in the top four and push on from there.’ But it [challenging for the title] is something that we believe we can achieve.

“If it doesn’t happen, we have ourselves to blame. We have built a great foundation, it is just about consistency.

“The hardest thing in football is consistently winning games but we have shown we are more than capable of passing [that test].”

City beat Liverpool 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium last season.
