Trent Alexander-Arnold is aware that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are currently “staring down the barrel” at a “very special” season in their history.
The Reds beat Chelsea on penalties at Wembley earlier this year to win the Carabao Cup.
They are also in the running to lift the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.
Klopp’s side beat Newcastle United 1-0 on Saturday to remain one point behind Premier League leaders Man City.
On Tuesday night, they face Villarreal in Spain in the return leg of their Champions League semi-final. Liverpool won 2-0 at Anfield last week in the first leg.
Ahead of this midweek game, Alexander-Arnold has admitted that he is hoping he and his teammates “will be in the history books again”:
“I did say one trophy a season minimum and that is in a season that isn’t our best, but we are in fine form and have been able to win in different ways,” Alexander-Arnold said (quotes via Irish Examiner).
“When you are staring down the barrel and looking at more trophies, where if we win every game we are looking at more silverware, that is what we are looking at. These kinds of games are exciting for us.
“This time last year we were trying to fight back into the top four and secure the Champions League. Now we are second in the league — a point off [Manchester] City — and in the FA Cup final. Who can complain?
“This is a very special season for us all and hopefully we will see it through, and at the end we will be in the history books again.”
Alexander-Arnold went onto suggest that Liverpool are “thriving off” treating each game as a cup final:
“I feel like we thrive off it. This is always the best time of the season. Every game is a final, pushing on all three fronts.
“These are the exciting games: You want to be playing in these, you want everything on the line, you want every game to feel like you have to win it. It is exciting, the buzz you get from scoring a goal and knowing how important it is.”
