EXCLUSIVE: Liverpool 'got it wrong' - Alexander-Arnold



"We've come here and tried to do a job, but we got it wrong and we got beat," Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold reflected after his side's first-loss of the Premier League season.

"Obviously we are disappointed, it was a tough game to take. We're not happy that we've come away with a loss. But it is what it is, we'll bounce back," he told OffTheBall.com's Nathan Murphy.

"It came down to just the execution in both boxes at the end of the day. It was a fairly even game, but they took their two chances and we only took one of ours.

"We know that on a different day we might have scored more goals. We had the chances to do so, but it wasn't our day," the wing-back continued.

Commenting on the hype surrounding Liverpool's drive to bring a first league title to the city in almost 30 year, Alexander-Arnold said the team has embraced the excitement:

"We know the situation that we are in. The whole city knows the situation that we are in. People are getting excited, but that's natural. We want to get the fans excited with the way that we play football and the results that we get."

Pat Nevin reacted to the match on OTB AM - he speculated that Alexander-Arnold's reference to trying to "do a job," reflected a cautious approach to the match and suggested that the team took to the pitch with a plan to contain the champions:

Irish forward Jon Walters joined Nathan Murphy for Off The Ball's live commentary of the crucial clash, he highlighted the role Fernandinho's return played in Man City's 2-1 victory:

While attention turns to the third round of the FA Cup this weekend, Liverpool will face an away trip to Brighton in their next league outing on January 12.

Meanwhile, Manchester City will entertain Wolves at the Etihad as they try to keep pace. Due to last night's result, Klopp side's lead has been cut to 4 points.
