"There's something special about the Champions League and it's always been a dream to play in that competition and to get the chance to, especially 11 times, it's an honour and I love doing it and hopefully I'll get the chance in the final", the 19-year-old told

"Trent Alexander-Arnold will be a top-class defender but we have seen a few occasions in recent months when the opposition have targeted him on the right side of the Liverpool defence", Aldridge wrote in his Irish Independent column.

Dominic Matteo thinks that Trent Alexander-Arnold simply has to start for Liverpool against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

The performances of the right-back in the Premier League and in the Champions League have been brilliant and very encouraging.

'With Ronaldo being one of many greats, in all probability top-of-the-line gamers ever, it'll be an honour to hopefully play in opposition to him, ' Alexander-Arnold stated.

"Yeah, I suppose (I was a fan of his), not when he was playing for Man United though", he said.

"I want to challenge myself and test myself against the best players in the world and there's not many people better than the likes of Ronaldo". The numbers that he does season in, season out are completely unbelievable.

"He's played in big, big football matches and shown unbelievable temperament".

Alexander-Arnold was presented with the young players' Golden Samba - a prestigious fans' award - as the Liverpool team completed a lap of appreciation around the Anfield pitch following the win over Brighton. I have to thank them for all the support they have given us this season.
