Trent Alexander-Arnold has succinctly underlined how important the atmosphere at Anfield is to Liverpool’s hopes, after a backing they “needed” on Saturday.

Trent is a boyhood Red, raised in West Derby, who knows how much bringing a first Premier League title to Merseyside means to the city, and how difficult it has been in those fallow years since 1990.

The manager had urged fans to “shout their soul onto the pitch,” and was rewarded with a raucous showing from the Anfield faithful.

Before the weekend’s clash with Bournemouth, Jurgen Klopp backed supporters’ efforts to pack the stadium early and restore the ’12th man’ in the Reds’ title charge.

Him stressing that Liverpool “needed this” to get back to winning ways at the weekend is paramount, and with victory in the remaining 12 league games guaranteeing the title, it is what should be expected every time.

An anxiety, or restlessness, from the crowd can spread to the players, which was evident in the 1-1 draws with Leicester and West Ham, but so too can the positive aggression Klopp calls for.

Trent is well positioned to acknowledge this, not just because his role as right-back often sees him closest to the stands, but due to his upbringing.
