Alexander-Arnold reveals how Liverpool will counter hostile atmosphere at Roma

Liverpool plan to counter Roma’s intimidation inside the Stadio Olympico with a smile in Wednesday’s Champions League return.

Trent Alexander-Arnold says Liverpool will not fazed by Roma’s hostile atmosphere and plan to enjoy the occasion.

Liverpool take a 5-2 lead into the semi-final second leg and Alexander-Arnold said: “We’re going there with a job to do, to go there and win.

“The best advice is just enjoy it first and foremost. Play with a smile and don’t get fazed by the atmosphere or the opposition you’re up against.

“Personally and as a team we have jobs to do.

“Obviously we know it’s going to be an intimidating atmosphere and they will look to do what our fans did to them. We have to be prepared mentally and physically for that.”

Alexander-Arnold claims Liverpool will play to win on Wednesday and takes confidence from how they overcame a similar pressured situation at Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

“Obviously it’s another big game coming up,” said the right-back. “We will look to go there to win and get to the final.

“We know they are going to have to come and score goals. They need to score goals to get through, same as City. We passed the City test and hopefully we pass the test on Wednesday.

“There’s pace in the side and when the opposition gamble, we can play in behind them. The front three especially will make the runs and we will look to find them.”
