Alexander-Arnold has so far played in 19 Premier League matches for Liverpool and has managed to score two goals along with providing 8 assists.
And speaking after the match, the full-back chose to comment on his healthy competition with fellow full-back Andy Robertson and also pointed out that he wishes to change the perception around full-backs in this country.
Also in saying this, the Liverpool man chose to take a cheeky dig at Man United legend Gary Neville.
“Definitely, we are competitive within ourselves,” he said via The Standard.
“We have a competition between us to see who can get the most goals and assist and it pushes us.
"The famous saying is nobody wants to grow up to be a full-back or a Gary Neville…"
"We want to change that."

“As a pair, we want to change the way the position has previously been thought about. Obviously there was the famous saying ‘no one wants to grow up to be a full-back or a Gary Neville’.
“We want to bring in a different way of thinking and that’s what we’ve been doing over the last 18 months.”
Obviously, this was said in good spirits and not in any derogatory manner. Even Rio Ferdinand was present inside the BT Sport Studio when Alexander-Arnold was giving this interview.
