Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold reveals who he dislikes more out of Man Utd and Everton

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has revealed who he dislikes more out of Manchester United and Everton.
Liverpool are currently fourth in the Premier League table after a hugely frustrating 2-1 defeat to Tottenham, which saw Luis Diaz's goal incorrectly ruled out for offside.
While they were held to a 2-2 draw by Brighton on Sunday, after Lewis Dunk's sucker-punch header in the 78th minute.
Jurgen Klopp will now be starting his preparations for the Merseyside derby, which takes place after the international break on October 21.
In the lead-up to the iconic fixture, Alexander-Arnold has revealed who he dislikes more out of Premier League rivals Everton and Manchester United.
Speaking on Liverpool's YouTube channel, the England international said: "That's a tough one.
"It's difficult because when I was growing up watching the first team, it was always United dominated everything, so naturally as a Liverpool fan, I had that dislike towards them.
"They won everything, it was always them. But for me personally, I knew a lot more Evertonians, I was around them, it was a lot more intense with them.
"A lot more interaction like I said, I was going to school with a lot of players that were there and that rivalry grew on a personal level from young.
"But I think if I was watching the first team and I was watching the likes of Stevie [Gerrard] and them boys, I always wanted them to beat United more than Everton. That's the way I see it."
Liverpool have dominated United in recent seasons, putting 21 goals past them in their last five competitive matches. Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag's men have found the back of the net just twice against their local rivals.
