"

People ask me about that corner I took for Divock Origi all the time

The truth is that that corner was a product of our mentality: The urgency, the insatiable hunger to win, we simply don’t know any other way because we aren't playing for ourselves out there—we play for our supporters.”

– Trent Alexander-Arnold on ‘that corner’ in Liverpool’s famous Barcelona comeback

"

My father says I shouldn't marry until I retire.

And I agree. When you marry, your priority changes to wife, kids, family. I want to make sure that while I'm still playing, football remains my number one: You don’t know how long you can last at the top level but you can always enjoy a fulfilling family life after."

"

I used to run at opponents 100 percent until I met Olympic gold medallist Darren Campbell, my sprint coach. He told me to just dribble up to 70 percent of my full speed, I'll still be fast enough to beat players yet maintain more energy and control, and designed a special 'slow-down' exercise regime for me.

I think it's really starting to pay off plus I'm getting more time to make decisions on the ball."
