Trent Alexander-Arnold draws Tottenham Hotspur ultimatum for Liverpool teammates
Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has sent a resounding ultimatum to his teammates ahead of the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday (November 6) at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs are having a decent season and have been very impressive apart from the two defeats against Manchester United and Newcastle United earlier this month. The recent 3-2 win against Bournemouth would have boosted our morale to an unspeakable extent.
The Reds, on the other hand, are visibly struggling. Liverpool are ninth in the Premier League table with 16 points from 12 matches.
They played very, very poorly against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground and against Leeds United at Anfield – two games they lost. If they play that way vs Spurs, we can steamroll them.
But Alexander-Arnold highlights that this game could now be a deciding moment for their season. He told his teammates that they must get a win against Spurs if they aim to achieve anything decent this campaign.
He said in an interview (h/t Metro):
“…I think when you do get setbacks, it can potentially make you second-guess yourself and question things. Clearly as a team something’s not going right, it’s not going as well as we want it to go.”
“That’s something for everyone to think about, for everyone to address and make sure we put it right, especially next week against Spurs, top-four rivals.”
The fact that he says “points” and not point clarifies that the Reds will come to N17 wanting a win and won’t settle for a single point before kick-off.
“We kind of need to go there and get some points if we’ve got any chance of reaching our aims and aspirations for the season.”

They’re in a sorry state and there for the taking. Let’s just hope they don’t find that extra bit of motivation against us because we’ll be coming on the back of a decisive UEFA Champions League tie against Olympique de Marseille in France while they will face Napoli at Anfield with qualification already guaranteed for both clubs.
