Trent Alexander-Arnold Liverpool 2020-21

Liverpool right-backTrent Alexander-Arnold has admitted his form has droppedoff this season from the high standards he has set for himself.

Alexander-Arnold, like his team, has seen his form dip after a blistering start to his Liverpool career.

Alexander-Arnold has become a hometown hero for the Reds early on in his career, having already helped his team to Champions League and Premier League glory at the age of 22.

The right-back has set the record for the most assists by a defender in a single Premier League season in back-to-back campaigns, breaking his own record last season.

But Alexander-Arnold has become a target for criticism in 2020-21, with his defensive capabilities in particular being questioned.

When asked by Sky Sports if he wasperforming to thehigh standards he has set for himself, the right-back said: "Me? No.

"There's been times this season I felt like I've been playing quite well. Recently I've been trying to get back into that rhythm I was talking about earlier from a personal point of view.

"It's been a tough reason in that respect in just trying to find that rhythm and get back into it and just letting things happen naturally. It's been quite difficult.

"But againthere's no excuses. I want to try to make things happen for the team and perform as well as I can tohelp us win games and that's what I'm trying to do."

Jurgen Klopp's side face table-topping Manchester City on Sunday in a massive match at Anfield.

Liverpool enter the game seven points back of City, who also have a game in hand over last season's champions.

The Reds have lost two matches in a row at Anfield and should they fail to win on Sunday, their hopes of back-to-back titles could be over
