Trent Alexander-Arnold says celebration in front of the Man City fans was 'funny' during post-match interview

Liverpool full-back and Player of the Match winner Trent Alexander-Arnold opened up on celebrating in front of the Manchester City supporters during his post-match interview.

The England international was at his scinetaling best on Saturday. He made more recoveries [10] than any other Liverpool player and attempted more dribbles [8], despite having to deal with the in-form Jeremy Doku.

Alexander-Arnold also cancelled out Erling Haaland's first-half opener in the 80th minute, when he arrowed a right-footed strike cross Edersen and into the far corner.

Then, after scoring from the edge of the penalty area, he ran over to the home support and celebrated by delivering the age-old 'shhh' celebration.

Hundreds of angry fans retaliated by pointing and shouting at the 25-year-old defender, who reacted by smiling back at those in sky blue.

Liverpool would go on to earn a hard-fought point in Manchester, ending City's perfect home record in the process.

And shortly after the full-time whistle, Alexander-Arnold gave his take on the "funny" celebration in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.

He said: "I got the ball from Darwin. I could sense that there were bodies and I tried to get it across goal. Thankfully it found the bottom corner and it’s one we needed. It was about getting over the line and getting that point.

"It’s always good to celebrate in front of away fans you get to see different faces and it’s funny."

Alexander Arnold also opened up about Liverpool's performance at the Etihad. "It’s definitely better than last year," he added.

"We haven’t had too many good results here in general. It’s a point gained. It wasn’t an amazing performance from us at all, but we take the point. There were positives – we had chances to win the game.

"I don’t think we played particularly well. Their formation and the way they set up really challenged us. We regrouped at half-time and came out with a bit more of a game plan to press them. It’s difficult subconsciously when you play against Man City – you can’t really get tight to them or stand off them.

"There was potentially a game plan to stop me from getting the ball in midfield. I think Bernardo [Silva] was very close to me when I was pulling inside. It was about getting on the ball in different ways and getting us up the pitch. We did that especially well in the second half.”

He added: "There’s been many times when we’ve played a lot better against Man City and lost the game. The point was something that we needed and instils that belief that even if we don’t play well, if you get a point it means you’re doing something right."
