Liverpool have had the better of Chelsea more often than not in recent years, but it was the Blues smiling home this time around after beating Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield on Thursday night.
Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold was honest in his assessment after the game, as he admitted that his team didn’t deserve to take anything out of the game.
Trent Alexander-Arnold also admitted that it was a tough result to take, as Liverpool’s rut continues, and he sounded optimistic of getting into the top four.
Speaking to the media after the game, Alexander-Arnold said: “Tough to take. These are the games that we need to win, especially with our aims and targets for the season. I’d say pushing for the top four, it’s massively important that we won today.
“But there’s nothing we can do about it now, except learn from it and pull out what we could have done better and go again. We’re on a quick turnaround to put things right on Sunday.”
When asked what he feels is ‘missing’ from Liverpool’s performances, the 22-year-old said: “That’s the million dollar question for us at the minute. I thought we played quite well – we didn’t create that many chances in the game, fair play to them.
“They kept us out. I think Sadio had half an opportunity where he scuffed it and it rolled to the keeper. From the angle I saw there could have been a handball in there. But it’s one of those games where it’s frustrating. I don’t really think we deserved to win at the end of the day, so it was a tough one to take.”
