The first home game is always a bit nerve-wracking, but the club’s official website has delivered the best possible hype video in the form of its interview with Trent Alexander-Arnold. The 18-year-old marked his Champions League debut with an exquisite free kick and quickly followed it up with a relatively strong performance against Watford in Liverpool’s first game of the season.

Now, before he steps out onto Anfield’s grass for Liverpool’s game against Crystal Palace, Alexander-Arnold is eager to tell you about how much Steven Gerrard has inspired him, what it’s like meeting fans on the streets he grew up on, and — most importantly — just how amazing his mum is.

Watching a professional footballer talking about how his mother isn’t letting him move out of her house any time soon is the most important content you can consume all day.
