The games, they somehow just keep coming. It’s like the powers that be don’t realize that the Reds are in poor form and could probably use some time to regroup. The next up is a league match against Spurs.

Never fear, though, because defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is determined to help pull his teammates out of the rut they fallen into over this hard winter.

“The only people we have to blame and to really put anything on is ourselves,” Alexander-Arnold said. “At the end of the day, it’s down to us to go out there and get the three points and get wins. We haven’t been able to do that the last few games, so there’s no-one else to blame other than ourselves. But we can’t be too critical. I think in a few of the games we’ve had the chances to score, we should’ve got a few more points I think. But that’s football – you don’t get the results that you want every game.”

Alexander-Arnold hopes that getting back into their rhythm will help them work their way out. Liverpool have gotten very used to winning consistently over the last few years, so hopefully getting back to it will be just like riding a bike.

Regarding this next match at White Hart Lane, Alexander-Arnold says what we’re all thinking: they just need to win.

“We don’t really care what score it is, we just want the three points,” he said. “Whether it be 4-3 or 1-0, it doesn’t make a difference to us. We want to make sure we get the three points. That’s what’s most important to us. I think if our mentality and performance is right on the day then we’ve got a good chance of doing that.”

It’s hard when your offense isn’t scoring and your defense isn’t stopping the other team from scoring, but we remain optimistic that the Reds will find a way to see it through to victory.
