Trent Alexander-Arnold represented Liverpool admirably in the first ePremier League competition on Saturday. He made it all the way to the final, after mounting a comeback in the semi-final.

Alexander-Arnold won the first three rounds of the competition, first against Tom Grennan representing Manchester United, then against Christian Atsu for Newcastle United. In the semi-final, Alexander-Arnold faced former Red and current Manchester City player Raheem Sterling. In that game, Alexander-Arnold overturned a two goal deficit to carry the Reds through to the final.

However, his good luck couldn’t last, and on Saturday when he played in the final against Diogo Jota, who represented Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Alexander-Arnold struck first, but Jota tied up the game and then came away with the golden goal winner in extra time.

“It’s been a good tournament. I’m happy to get to the final but gutted not to win but I’ve done well,” Alexander-Arnold said after the game ended.

The ePremier League Invitational donated the prize fund to the PlayersTogether Initiative, which was created by Premier League players to help the NHS.
