Trent Alexander-Arnold has denied Liverpool are nervous during the title run-in after Jurgen Klopp’s side surrendered their lead at the top to Manchester City.
The Reds had the opportunity to go ten points clear of Guardiola’s side when they travelled to The Etihad in January, but defeat in that game followed by a stuttering run of form has seen City claw back the deficit.
Despite having slipped to second, Alexander-Arnold has denied any sense of nervousness from the squad and insists the side will continue to ‘enjoy’ the run-in.
“There is not so much a nervous tension, just eagerness to get it going,” Alexander-Arnold said in an interview with the BBC’s Gary Lineker. “Not until four or five games left will we start to look forward a little. It is important right now to stay focused.
“At times you can feel the supporter’s expectations. We know Liverpool fans are so passionate. We can hopefully give them performances that they can go home and talk about the next day. That is the main thing for us – to give them a reason to come back.
“We know how hard it is to win a league title. You have to be consistent across a full season. Quite a few of the lads have never been in this position before, including myself. It is important for us to enjoy it, learn from it and just see how it goes.”
