Liverpool fullback Alexander-Arnold: We've got target on our back

Trent Alexander Arnold has said Liverpool understand they have a 'big target on their backs' this season.

The Reds claimed the Premier League title with seven games to spare last season.

And with rivals Chelsea and Manchester City spending big this summer, Alexander-Arnold knows his side can no longer fly under the radar.

"For us it's not about topping the points that we got or scoring more goals, it's about if we can all develop as a team and keep winning," Alexander-Arnold told Sky Sports News.

"We need to keep that mentality, that is the main thing that helped us get this far.

"We know that there's now a big target on our backs being the champions and teams are going to be extra motivated when they play us, so we need to match that mentality and take it to the next step.

"Winning it back-to-back is harder than winning it once."
