Trent Alexander-Arnold praises Salah after victory over Brighton
Liverpool have been struggling since the start of the year as they lost their past two games. The first one came against Manchester City in the league, then they were knocked out of the FA Cup following a 2-1 lost to Wolves.
For such reasons, the team was eager to earn all three points when clashing with Brighton. Thanks to the penalty kick Mohamed Salah earned and scored, Liverpool claimed a 1-0 victory.
“The first half was definitely the harder half. In the second half, they opened up a little bit more and the goal we scored probably helped us because they had to attack a little bit more and try to get a goal back,” Alexander-Arnold told the club’s official website after the match.
“Even when they opened up it was still hard to score past them, and I think we showed our resilience and defended well. They didn’t have too many chances against us.
“They are Incredibly tough situations, penalties, and I don’t think many people understand the pressurized situations they are, but Mo has shown again this season he is a quality player and shown he can tuck away his penalties as well.
“Credit to him for winning it first and foremost and secondly to be able to put it away,” he added.
The Reds are currently on top of the Premier League table with 57 points, seven more than title holders Manchester City who have one game in hand. They will face 14th placed Crystal Palace in their next game on January 19.
