Liverpool fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold admits he's excited going to Everton tonight.

Liverpool make the short trip across Stanley Park tonight, with a Merseyside derby at the home of the Blues to be played with supporters present for the first time since March 2019.

“I personally like it, to be honest, just knowing you're going into a hostile place where everyone wants to see you fail and do bad, it probably gives you that little bit more motivation," the Scouser told Liverpoolfc.com.

“You feel… not arrogant, but you've got something to prove, which I've always felt. I like to perform in them arenas and atmospheres.

“We know that it's going to be a loud one, a hostile one, for us going there but for us it's 90 minutes of football. That's what we do, that's what we get paid to do, is to play 90 minutes and try to win the game.

“You strip back all the rivalry and the local derby away from it, it is still just 90 minutes of football and we have got a job to do out there."

On Everton, he also said: "They'll be looking to bounce back, they suffered a defeat that they probably won't be too happy with on the weekend, so they will probably have a little bit more motivation to bounce back and want to do it in front of the home fans.

"But that's football, every team has them little bits of motivation - we are a top, top team so every team wants to beat us. But I'm also sure they will be worried about what we can do going the other way.

"The form that the front three are in at the minute is frightening; goals and the way they are contributing and linking up together, and the way the team is gelling at the minute is looking very good for us and I'm sure they will be watching our analysis with a little bit of fear in them."
