Liverpool edged another step closer to the inevitable of lifting the Premier League (PL) title on Wednesday (Thursday in the sub-continent) ,with a thumping 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace. Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold ,opened the scoring with a superbly placed free-kick and that ,brought forth the name of David Beckham.
Comparisons have already been made in the past by the English media long, back between the crossing ability of Alexander-Arnold with that of David Beckham in the past. Following a “Beckham-esque” curling free-kick, it just got more intensified. But the youngster believes he still has a long a way to go to be considered in the bracket ,as “the best free-kick taker in Premier League history” in Beckham.
The Scouser (Liverpool native) laughed off the comparisons between him and the Manchester United legend ,but feels it is “good to get the ball rolling”. He told as quoted by Goal, “The comparisons with the best free-kick taker in Premier League ,history are very nice but there is a lot of work to do. I have been practising a lot and I had a few against Everton which I was disappointed not to score with, but it’s always good to get the ball rolling for the boys.”
Emphasizing on the “disappointing” draw at the Goodison Park in the weekend, Trent is happy to get back to winning ways. There are more incentives to have for the Reds following their victory last night, as they can be officially crowned as champions as soon as tomorrow. The Mersysiders are currently 23 points ahead from Manchester City with seven games in hand. If Pep Guardiola’s side failed to win against Chelsea, the three decade wait will be over for Liverpool.
However, the 21-year-old is reluctant to think too much about things out of control and asserts anything can happen in the PL. Focused more on ,the things under control, the Three Lions international added: “We are in a good position so hopefully we can get over the line soon. We have to focus on ourselves, we are not hoping Man City drop points, we know it’s our hands. We still have to go to City next week and get a result.”
