Trent Alexander-Arnold has opened up on the one message that manager Jurgen Klopp has instilled in his Liverpool team.
The 21-year-old England international told BBC Sport: “Yeah, because there’s no benefit in thinking too far ahead as that’s when your focus goes.

“The quality of every side we come up against means if we are just at 95% then we’ll be beaten, which is why we have to be at 100%.”
As for the seemingly imminent prospect of winning the Premier League, Alexander-Arnold added: “Obviously it’s something you dream of.
“At a club like Liverpool, where it’s eluded us for so long, it would stay with the fans for a very long time, but the closer you get to it, the less you think about it, because it’s more of a reality and you can’t get caught up in the hype.”
