Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold admits Chelsea loss is a bitter pill to swallow.
The Reds were so desperate to cut their miserable 2021 run of games at home.
Nevertheless, they lost a consercutive fifth home game in the league, which is a first in the club’s history.
When asked about the game and result, Alexander-Arnold told the club’s website: “Tough to take. These are the games that we need to win, especially with our aims and targets for the season.
“I’d say pushing for the top four, it’s massively important that we won today.
“But there’s nothing we can do about it now, except learn from it and pull out what we could have done better and go again. We’re on a quick turnaround to put things right on Sunday.”
Asked by the reporter to elaborate on the issues in the team, he added: “That’s the million dollar question for us at the minute.
“I thought we played quite well – we didn’t create that many chances in the game, fair play to them. They kept us out.
“I think Sadio had half an opportunity where he scuffed it and it rolled to the ‘keeper. From the angle I saw there could have been a handball in there.
“But it’s one of those games where it’s frustrating. I don’t really think we deserved to win at the end of the day, so it was a tough one to take.”
