Liverpool midfielder Alexis Mac Allister believes togetherness and focus can help Liverpool win trophies at the end of the season.
The Reds have made a strong start to the season after an underwhelming 2022/23 season where finished 5th in the Premier League – missing out on Champions League qualification.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently top of the league table with 45 points, two points behind defending champions Manchester City who defeated Newcastle United 3-2 on Saturday night.
Liverpool have reached the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup, and advanced to the UEFA Europa League round of 16.
Alexis Mac Allister told Liverpoolfc.com: “I think everyone can see how good the people are in the group. Our relationship is very good and that helps a lot to achieve things.
“Of course we are halfway and we haven’t won anything yet, so we have to go game by game, keep improving.
“Hopefully at the end of the season we can celebrate some trophies – that’s the idea. But at the same time we know how far [away] it is, so we need to keep working.
“We have very experienced players, we have very good leaders, we have a group of young players that want to improve every single day – and you can see the mentality.
“We know that as a team we need to suffer sometimes and we need to defend sometimes, and from there we can do special things. That’s the idea and that’s what we try to do every single game.”
On the impact on the youngsters this season, the World Cup winner added: “You can see in the [Arsenal] game – Conor [Bradley], Bobby [Clark] – players from the Academy are doing very well and that helped the team to grow every single day in training and in the games.
“We are missing players – like [Wataru] Endo, Mo [Salah], Robbo [Andy Robertson], Thiago [Alcantara], some important players – but the team is always there and the young players prove that they are ready, so that’s what we need.
“In football you need a big group, a group of big players – and everyone is showing that. That’s why we all think that we can achieve some big things. But as I say, we have to go step by step.”
