Trent Alexander-Arnold Quotes: "To have the fans back was special for us all."

Trent Alexander-Arnold is starting to become one of the senior players in the Liverpool squad now, and after Liverpool's 1-1 draw at home to Athletic Bilbao, the 22-year-old had his say on the game.

Liverpool played their first home match of the season yesterday. It was against Spanish side Athletic Bilbao and the Reds were held to a 1-1 draw.

There was a lot to take away from the game, with most of the players who started the game being tipped to be playing against Norwich on Saturday.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

One of them players is Trent Alexander-Arnold who had another great game after returning from his injury he picked up before the EUROs

When asked about the what it meant to be back in front of fans, the Scouser said this: "This is the moment we have been waiting for. To have the fans back was special for us all."

Trent was also asked about how he thought the game went: "The first half was really good - we were all over them but the second half we got a bit leggy and gave the ball away to easily. The big down side was Robbo coming off injured."

Speaking of Andy Robertson, the Scottish international went off injured after blocking a cross. Robbo looked in a lot of pain and his full-back partner wished him well in his pre-game interview.

"You know it's probably going to be quite bad as Robbo doesn't go down easily. I haven't spoken to him yet." said Trent. 

"It's not something he normally does. It's disappointing to see but I'm sure he'll bounce back as soon as he can."

Owen Beck

Owen Beck replaced Robertson after he went off and the 19-year-old impressed a lot of people with his cameo, including Trent.

"Owen Beck has impressed us in pre-season. The signs are there he is going to be a top player - he got the opportunity today and he took it."

Hopefully Trent can stay fit and it looks certain that he will be starting after getting 90 minutes in yesterday's game!
