Liverpool fullback Alexander-Arnold thrilled with first Anfield goal

Liverpool fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold was delighted to score in their 5-0 rout of Swansea City.

It marked his first goal at Anfield.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: "Every lad dreams of scoring at the Kop end under the floodlights, and especially with it coming off the bar and going in!

"They can easily bounce back and that would have been a disappointment, but it [went] in and it was a dream come true.

"To be able to get the chance and to put it away for the team was really good and the result made it [more] special.

"I know a lot of the family [were] here and it would have been a really proud moment for them to see the goal go in."

On his celebration, the youngster added: "It was all a bit of a blur, to be honest.

"All I know is that I slid on my knees, I don't know what really happened from the point the ball went in [until] I was jogging back to the halfway line.

"I'm sure I'll watch it back!"
