Trent Alexander-Arnold has hailed Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Leicester City as their “best performance of the season” after going 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League.
The 21-year-old played a starring role for the Reds from right-back as he scored one goal and made three for his team-mates as the Reds blew away their nearest title challengers.
Roberto Firmino helped himself to a brace with James Milner scoring from the penalty spot as Jurgen Klopp’s side made it 17 wins from 18 games and 35 unbeaten.
And Alexander-Arnold believes that with the win coming just four days after they returned from Qatar as Club World Cup winners, it was their most ruthless display of the season so far.
“We played really good football especially given how much travelling we’ve done,” he told Amazon Prime Video Sport.
“We controlled the game, they never had many good chances to score and of course, to get the clean sheet and score four goals, we can proud of that. So yeah, it probably is our best win of the season.”
Milner echoed Alexander-Arnold’s sentiments and even suggested the four-goal margin should have been bigger, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both missing golden chances.
“I thought we stopped them playing,” he said.
“We defended well and created chances, especially in the first half, and if we had been clinical we could have scored more. It was a good solid performance.”
