Liverpool’s Unexpected Loss to Bournemouth: Alexander-Arnold Explains and Looks Ahead to Champions League

Trent Alexander-Arnold has made an attempt to clarify the reasons behind Liverpool’s unexpected loss to Bournemouth on Saturday. After a spectacular 7-0 victory against Manchester United the previous week, Liverpool suffered a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth, who earned three points and climbed up from the bottom of the Premier League table. Philip Billing scored in the first half after several Liverpool defenders appeared to give up, and Mohamed Salah missed a penalty in the second half, contributing to Liverpool’s loss. Alexander-Arnold spoke to Liverpool’s club channels after the match and attempted to make sense of the outcome and the team’s performance. He suggested that the problems began quite early on in the game.

“We created chances, we had our chances to score [and] we never, obviously we had the goal disallowed. But we started on a bright foot and I think they just sucked the life out of the game and it was difficult for us to build momentum. They slowed the game down and executed their game plan and then go and score the goal.

“But it’s one of those – it was very avoidable, the goal, and it’s disappointing looking back on it.”

During his post-match interview, Alexander-Arnold expressed his eagerness for Liverpool to recover in their upcoming Champions League match against Real Madrid, as they attempt to overturn a three-goal deficit in the last 16 round.

He added: “I think there’s only one more game before the internationals and it’s a huge one for us, it’s one that we need to go and do something special, so 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.

“So, 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.”
