Trent Alexander-Arnold targets Treble with Liverpool in order to have a perfect 2020

‘To have a perfect 2020 we need to win as many trophies as possible’: Trent Alexander-Arnold targets Treble with Liverpool as he squad bids to ‘maintain momentum and replicate 2019’

  • Liverpool had a great 2019 – winning the Champions League and Club World Cup
  • The Reds are on course to win the Premier League as they sit 13 points clear 
  • They are through to the FA Cup fourth round and Champions League last 16 too 

Trent Alexander-Arnold has outlined his ambitions for this year by having a Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League winners medal from this season to show for it.

The right back has played a pivotal role in Liverpool’s stellar campaign so far. The Reds sit a mammoth 13 points clear at the top of the table and are yet to lose with a game in hand, are through to the FA Cup fourth round as well as the last-16 of the Champions League – the latter in which they are defending champions.

Alexander-Arnold is keen for Liverpool to build upon a brilliant 2019 where they won the Champions League and the Club World Cup. To do that he has set them the target of winning all the silverware that is on offer.

‘Keeping up the momentum we’ve got and trying to replicate 2019 as much as possible because, if we do that, I think more trophies will come,’ the 21-year-old told the club’s official matchday programme when asked about his goals for 2020.

‘With the position we are in in the Premier League, if we can replicate what we did in the first half of the season then we will be in a solid position come May.

‘Hopefully we can get to another Champions League final too, but we’ve got a difficult draw. Atletico Madrid are a stubborn team, one that’s hard to break down, and a passionate team with a passionate manager. It’ll be interesting to see the two managers on the touchline and see who is more passionate!

‘We enjoyed the Champions League last year because we had such a tough run. Every game we had to get to the final was against a different type of opponent after a really tough group.

‘We had a tough group this year and a tough round of 16 opponent again, but we like to be tested as a team because it brings the best out of us. If you want to be the best you have to beat the best, so for us it’s about testing ourselves as much as possible.

‘Hopefully we’ll be able to go back to Istanbul again, which would be massive for the club, but to have a perfect 2020 we need to win as many trophies as possible.’
