Trent Alexander-Arnold thinks Liverpool are capable of extending their impressive start to the season, but insisted his side must ‘keep pushing’ themselves.
Liverpool are on a club-record run of 15 consecutive Premier League wins, with their 2-1 win over Chelsea at the weekend seeing them become the first club to win their opening six games in back-to-back seasons, while also setting a new club record of seven straight away wins.
“Why not? We are capable of doing it. We are a strong enough side and we’ve got the squad depth that we need,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“Players can come in, come out and rotate, so we are showing how good a side we are, how good a squad we are. And as a club this is where we need to be.
“Obviously 15 wins in a row is something to be proud of, but we know we need to keep on going and keep pushing ourselves even further.”
The England international opened the scoring in that hugely entertaining game at Stamford Bridge, firing an unstoppable, well-worked free kick past Kepa Arrizabalaga, but admitted that the European champions ‘dug in’ at the end to earn all three points.
“Stamford Bridge is one of the toughest places to come during the season and it’s hard to say how much it means to us,” he added.
“It’s a massive win, we’ve dug in really deep there at the end and the last half an hour was really tough for us. But we were prepared and we were ready.
“Adrian made some world-class saves and we’ve been able to defend really well. Obviously we conceded a goal, which was a disappointment, but three points is all that matters to us.”
