Trent Alexander-Arnold reveals the key to Atletico Madrid’s win

3

Trent Alexander-Arnold said Liverpool learned lessons from their previous meeting with Atletico Madrid to beat them 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The English right-back took two assists in the first half in an impressive display at Anfield, with the victory much more routine than the 3-2 win they took at Wanda Metropolitano last month.

Alexander-Arnold told BT Sport that the Reds not only remained true to themselves, but adapted as the match continued to kill a draw and secure their place in the last sixteen with two games left.

“We stuck to our game plan. Obviously it changed when they went down to ten men, we had scored two early goals. It’s similar to how the match went in Madrid. We learned our lesson from where that match went. We could see through it. and dominated the game, he said.

“We know what kind of team they are, they want to suck you into their way of playing. We stuck to what we’re good at – kept the ball, moved it quickly and created opportunities.”

Fabinho returned to Liverpool’s starting line-up after their 2-2 draw against Brighton at the weekend, and this allowed the Reds to be more fluid and cause real problems for Atletico.

“Me and Mo [Salah] have a really good understanding of the moment, things flow quite naturally, added Alexander-Arnold.

“[Jordan Henderson] pressed the plan today with Fab back in the team, but we were told to be flexible, not just be in fixed positions. We created confusion for the opposition. “

Next time for Liverpool is a trip to high-flying West Ham in the Premier League. If they can avoid defeat in the capital, they will set a new club record for unbeaten matches in all competitions.
