Trent Alexander-Arnold’s reaction is that of every Liverpool fan as Reds deal title blow to Everton


Trent Alexander-Arnold has summed up the emotions of Liverpool fans as their Premier League title hopes were hugely hampered by defeat to Everton.

The Reds lost 2-0 to their Merseyside rivals at Goodison Park to keep them three points behind leaders Arsenal with four games remaining.

Jarrad Branthwaite opened the scoring with a bundled finish before Dominic Calvert-Lewin sealed the deal near the hour mark.

Everton were by far the more deserving team, with Liverpool nowhere near the quality they showed for most of the season.

And Alexander-Arnold’s reaction as they edged closer to defeat seemed to reflect the general sentiment of Reds fans.

After being replaced late on by Joe Gomez, the right-back could be seen with his head in his hands on the Liverpool bench.

He and his supporters will know that a defeat to their rivals could end their chances of winning the title this season.

Dropping points at Manchester United before a shock home defeat to Crystal Palace raised questions about their ability to go all the way.

Everton have now become the latest team to inflict misfortune on them in the final season, with their chances of glory now looking slim.

Like Alexander-Arnold, Jurgen Klopp also showed pessimism during the match in his last Merseyside derby before leaving Anfield.

Liverpool have already won the Carabao Cup this season, but their slip-ups in the title race have added to the Europa League dismay.

They also lost to United in the FA Cup and so Klopp could face a disappointing end to his iconic tenure at Anfield.

Everton, on the other hand, took a big step towards safety in the Premier League with another huge victory.

Sean Dyche’s side are eight points clear of the bottom three despite previous points deductions and a 13-match winless run.
