Trent Alexander-Arnold insists Liverpool’s rivalry with Manchester United means the fixture remains ‘one of the biggest games of the season’ for the club.
Jurgen Klopp’s league leaders travel to face their traditional rivals this weekend, looking to continue their perfect start to the season and knowing a win will equal Manchester City‘s record of 18 successive league wins.
By contrast, Manchester United‘s fortunes have declined in recent seasons and the Old Trafford outfit are currently enduring their worst start to a season in 30 years, languishing down in 12th place having won just twice in their opening eight league fixtures.
Despite their rivals’ struggles though, Alexander-Arnold insists the fixture remains one of the most eagerly anticipated on the footballing calendar and is hopeful Liverpool can secure victory in a what will always be a ‘massive’ clash at Old Trafford.
“Traditionally and historically, the Man United-Liverpool game is always massive,” Alexander-Arnold told Premier League Productions.
“It’s one of the biggest games of the season and they’re a top side as well.
“It’s always going to be a big game and a big occasion because both teams want to win it so much.”
