Trent Alexander-Arnold doesn’t think Liverpool are feeling the effects of fatigue following our crazy of fixtures throughout September and October.
We’ve not won in four, are out of the League Cup and the front-three have seemingly lost their scoring touch, but going into this international break we’re still joint top of the Premier League table having conceded just three top flight goals.
Gary Neville recently suggested Liverpool looked tired in the draw at home Manchester City, with our aggressive pressing game not at its most dynamic, and are in need of a rest.
But Alexander-Arnold thinks this isn’t the case.
“No, I wouldn’t say so. That’s the way that we play, we play quite an energetic game,” he told Sky Sports.
“That’s something we’ve always done, that’s the way the manager wants us to play.
“Whether you’re not getting the results or you are, it’s always good to have games every three or four days and keep the momentum going or bounce back.”
We actually think Neville is right on this occasion. We usually hate the international break, but a few weeks to recharge emotionally will do the players good…
Hopefully, the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino can play and score while with their countries and come back with a little more penalty box confidence.
It usually only takes one bit of luck for a goal to be scored and the pressure lifted.
In two weeks’ time it’s Huddersfield at home, with Red Star and Cardiff after that. Three wins is what’s expected.
