Trent Alexander-Arnold: Man City have helped his side become mentality monsters

Trent Alexander-Arnold says Manchester City have helped  become the ‘mentality monsters’ that have forced a potential quadruple, as both sides battle for the Premier League title on the final day.

 

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds, who have already claimed the two domestic cup competitions this season, go into the top flight’s final round of fixtures one point behind City, who know that victory over Aston Villa  will clinch the title for Pep Guardiola’s side.

 

And Alexander-Arnold, who became the youngest player to ever claim their first Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Champions League titles this month, says City’s relentless picking up of points have helped Liverpool treat every single game this season as a cup final.

“It’s definitely down to how City are as well, I’d give a lot of that to them,” he exclusively said when asked about why Liverpool have been so consistent in winning. “Even at the start of the season, we’ve known that we can only drop a handful of points then they’ll match or even better that level.

“This is our third 90+ points season in four years which is outstanding and to only have one Premier League right now just shows the levels that City have.

“Every single game we’ve known we have to get the three points. From how it is right now, to back in September and October, it’s exactly the same mentality from us to win every single game.”

Even though City could ruin Liverpool’s chances of winning the quadruple on Sunday by beating Villa, Alexander-Arnold admitted he enjoys watching Guardiola’s side – and even described them as the best team in the world.

 

“Yeah, I admire them,” the Liverpool defender added. “They’re probably the best team in the world – you can take your pick [between us and them]. We’re probably the two best teams in the world and [it’s down to] whether you like our styles.

“You have to admire a team that wins games continuously and I admire them. They have an outstanding team and outstanding manager but I would like to have seen them in 20 years time when I hang my boots up, rather than now!”

Liverpool came from 14 points behind City to close the gap to just one going into Sunday’s final round of fixtures, but the England international believes the Reds can be proud of their season no matter how this weekend’s finale goes.

 

“Going back to January, we were miles back and fought back into an amazing position,” Alexander-Arnold says. “To fight in every competition, it’s one of the best team performances in Premier League history.

“We’ve taken every trophy to the last game. That’s all you can ask for, it will be a special achievement on Sunday. It’s an amazing team and an amazing set of lads and we are proud of our achievements.”
