Trent Alexander-Arnold urged Liverpool to rediscover their habit of converting positive performances into victories after losing to Leicester City on Saturday

The Reds were on the up for much of the first 75 minutes at King Power Stadium and rightly moved forward over Mohamed Salah’s clinical goal in the middle of the second half

However, three goals within seven minutes from the hosts turned the game on its head Alexander-Arnold had to regret a frustrating saying that undermined his team’s previous efforts

The right-back told Liverpoolfccom: “I think we were brilliant for 70-75 minutes, up there with one of our best performances – counter-pressing, taking the ball off them for fun, they couldn’t really get out”Really, really top drawer from us

“I think we never created too many clear chances in the first half, but in the second half we had a few more shots, scored a goal and were in the driver’s seat

“Then the tables turned and they put the game to bed within five to ten minutes and this is soccer It went so fast, it only happened in a moment and we collapsed at the end of the day”

We had confidence we were 1-0, I didn’t look back but as part of the challenge I personally didn’t feel like it was a foul I heard it was dubious to be offside but it’s part of football, we have to go on with it, the second goal is really one in a million, just a lack of communication that is nobody’s fault with the third goal we lost the ball in a bad position and they punished us for this one At this point the game is dead and buried and it’s difficult to get back from that point. But like I said, I think our mentality needs to improve in these difficult situations

Everyone’s talking about a bad spell and a slump in form and stuff, but personally I think we’ve done well in the past few weeks, the past two months, or six weeks or so I thought we did performed well It’s just that we didn’t get the results [and] it’s a profit making business so there are no excuses for that. But I think confidently, we don’t play bad, we don’t get beaten, We played well but didn’t get the results It’s about converting those accomplishments into results, and that’s probably what we need to look out for the most

Yes, in situations like this you would like to have the opportunity to correct this as soon as possible Different competition that always refreshes it, different mentality It will be a different task for us, a Champions League night It is always nice to be there So it’s exciting to have the prospect of a knockout soccer match again. You wait so long for the Champions League knockout rounds – it’s always exciting, it fills you with that excitement so it’ll be alright. We gotta meet have a rest and go again because we have a big game on Tuesday
