Liverpool FC are taking on Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London. Whether or not fans view it as a glorified friendly, it seems like the team and the players are taking it very seriously. Trent Alexander-Arnold spoke with the team’s website ahead of the match.

“Again, it’s another opportunity to win a trophy.” Trent said. “You’ve got to respect every competition you enter and this is one of many competitions that we’re in this season as a team. We’re obviously looking to win the game; it’s a game against City and one that might set off the start of the season. Effectively our season starts on Sunday and we’ve got a massive game against one of the best teams in the world. Coming in off pre-season, it’s going to be tough and intense but we know we can match them, we’ve shown that over the years. It will be tough but I am sure we will put in a good effort.”

The game doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things, but it’s good to see players with the right mentality ahead of the season.
