Liverpool fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold shrugged off his role in Arsenal’s two goals on Sunday.
Alexander-Arnold was outstanding as Liverpool fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2.
But on Arsena’s goals, he insisted: “The goals have to come on one of the sides or through the middle, so that’s the way football works. You’re against a quality player, Martinelli, and their attacking line is quality all over – like the team, who are full of quality.
“They’re bound to be threats and they’ve got the goal. But we stayed in the game and we tried to put pressure on, especially late on in the second half. We missed a pen as well – I forgot about that, that was a big moment – but we stayed in it and got it late. It’s just the fight that we have really.
“They’re one of the two best teams in the league – them and City. Every game we want to go and get three points. Disappointed somewhat to not get it today but there were lessons in there that we can play and have belief to play against a quality side like Arsenal.
“We’ve given them two good games – we gave them a hell of a game down at the Emirates and here again. We’ve shown on numerous occasions we can go toe to toe with the best in the league.”
