Trent Alexander-Arnold spoke to the media after a disappointing result for Liverpool. The Reds lost 1-0 to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium after a Tom Billing goal was enough for the Cherries to pick up the win.

Alexander-Arnold tried to explain the defeat to Liverpool’s official club media.

“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.”

Alexander-Arnold said the team now has to forget about their loss and focus all their attention on the upcoming Champions League tie against Real Madrid, in which The Reds face the difficult task of overcoming a 3 goals deficit on aggregate.

“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
