Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold reveals how he handles criticism

Trent Alexander-Arnold has insisted he doesn’t need fans to tell him when he’s made a mistake as he is his own “best critic”.

The Liverpool defender had a difficult start to the season as he was outplayed on the opening day by Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic, who rose above him to score at Craven Cottage.

Alexander-Arnold has been criticized for his apparent lack of defensive awareness that allowed Mitrovic to score, but he has shown he doesn’t pay too much attention to those who doubt him.

“I learned what I have to learn from, and then it’s done,” Alexander Arnold said in an interview red bull while thinking about Mitrovic’s goal.

“I’ve always felt like I’m my best critic anyway, so no matter what people say about me, I’ll be able to judge if it’s true or not, and I’ll be able to judge if it’s me.” I have made a big mistake in a game.

“I was able to build a nice filter for what I wanted to hear.”

Liverpool only managed to draw the first two games of the season before meeting bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Jurgen Klopp’s side won the same game 5-0 last year but the result was very different this time as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat.

Alexander-Arnold admitted the defeat was “hard” to take but acknowledged his side were “punished” for their mistakes by the Red Devils.

“They had just gone 4-0, Brentford, and it was like, ‘No matter what, they have to try and win the game against us.’

“Either it could end like last year where it’s 5-0 again and they collapse after we scored an early goal or they’ll be able to perform well. To be fair, they did well.

It was tough, we had our chances. We were only hit and punished on counterattacks,” he added.

That result might have come as a shock to the system, but worse was to come when Liverpool were beaten 4-1 by Napoli in the Champions League earlier this month.

Alexander-Arnold admitted his team never attended the game’s races and had to take a look in the mirror after their “humiliating” defeat.

He continued: “I would say the result felt right because we deserved it. In terms of the way we played, it didn’t feel right on the pitch. It wasn’t natural, it didn’t happen for us.

“We really had to look after ourselves after that. It was really humbling. After that it was back to the drawing board to make sure we got our stuff in order.

Whatever they did it seemed to work as Liverpool bounced back and won their next game 2-1 against Ajax, allowing them to stay level on points with the Dutch champions in their group and qualify for the knockout rounds of the Champions League could qualify for the competition.
