Playing Against Salah Is A Nightmare – Trent Alexander

Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has admitted that it is “a nightmare” coming face-to-face with Mohamed Salah during training sessions.

Salah is fast closing in on Ian Rush’s record of 47 goals in a single campaign for the Reds, which is now just four out of reach with at least four more games left to play.

The Egypt international, whose 31-goal haul in the Premier League is a joint-record for the most scored in a 38-game season, arguably reserved his best performance of the campaign for Tuesday’s 5-2 win over Roma.

After witnessing his teammate score two and set up two more, Alexander-Arnold told reporters: “During the week it’s a nightmare because you’re up against him. During the week, there’s sometimes I don’t really like him because he does that stuff to me.

“That’s what he does day in, day out. It’s just become second nature to him now and it’s a credit to him. We’re really happy to be playing with him rather than against him.”

Asked if Salah could add the Ballon d’Or to the PFA Player of the Year award he claimed on Sunday, Alexander-Arnold added: “I don’t know, it’s only April isn’t it? There’s still a long way to go until the Ballon d’Or ceremony.

“I think it’s in January or December, so he’s another six months to carry it on. I think the team back him to do that.”

Salah’s hot run of form has seen him strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season.
