Trent Alexander-Arnold tries to reassure Liverpool fans before Merseyside derby

Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has attempted to calm the nerves of Reds supporters ahead of their Merseyside derby clash with Everton on Sunday night.

Victory for Jurgen Klopp's side would leave them needing a minimum of just one more win to seal the club's first top-flight title in 30 years, meaning they could celebrate with a victory against Crystal Palace on Wednesday assuming Manchester City beat Burnley on Monday.

Liverpool have not played since their defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last-16 on March 11, and speaking to BBC Radio Five Alexander-Arnold said he and his teammates are desperate to get the job done for the fans.

"If you can imagine your ultimate dream and being so, so close to it – two steps away from it really – and someone saying 'you need to wait over 100 days then you might get it', it was quite frustrating," he said.

"But the league position hasn't changed, our mentality hasn't changed and that is to win every game, push boundaries, break records, win the league and be remembered."

Alexander-Arnold's rallying cry comes after his fellow defender Virgil van Dijk warned their rivals that they will be just as hungry for further success next season.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the Dutch centre-back said: "With two wins, we will be champions. But it doesn’t stop there. We want to keep going, we want to take it into next season as well because that will start pretty quickly after the last game of this season.

"The manager spoke to us as well and said that what we do in these last nine games will set the tone for next season as well.

"We have not won the title yet. We have not won anything yet. But the aim is to start next season in the same fashion."
