Liverpool fullback Alexander-Arnold: I should be doing better with England

Liverpool fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold admits he should be doing better with England.

Alexander-Arnold hopes to start for England in tonight's World Cup qualifier against Andorra.

“Since I've come into the squad, I haven't really been the best version of myself," said the 13-cap Liverpool defender, who made his debut against Costa Rica in a friendly ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

“I haven't put in the performances I have regularly for my club and I expect more for myself when I play for England.

“That's what I try to do every time I get the opportunity now and, hopefully, over the next week, I will be given an opportunity to perform and am able to take it.

“I'm not sure why it has been like that.

“Obviously, with less games come less opportunities.

“There is a lot more competition for places here — at club level I am a regular who plays most of the games.

“It is just about not finding the form and the level I need and the level I demand on a daily basis.

“I had a really good game a few years back in the Nations League third-place play-off against Switzerland but I just couldn't hit the ground running after that.

“Other than that, they have been mediocre performances by my standard and that's what I need to improve."
