Trent Alexander-Arnold has described scoring his first ever Anfield goal during Liverpool's Boxing Day thrashing of Swansea City as 'a dream come true'.

The 19-year-old opened his account at the Reds' famous home ground in the 65th minute of a 5-0 victory over the Swans, winning the ball at the edge of the Kop-end box before smashing a brilliant half-volley in off the bar.

As a born and bred Scouser and lifelong supporter of the club he now represents, Trent was understandably delighted to get off the mark on familiar territory in fine style.

He told "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."

LFCTV GO: Alexander-Arnold reflects on Anfield strike

Asked about his enthusiastic celebration in front of the ground's most well-known stand, the teenager 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!"

Although the scoreline suggests otherwise, Liverpool did not have things all their own way during their latest Premier League victory.

Leon Britton's team recovered well from conceding an early Philippe Coutinho goal to frustrate their hosts up until Roberto Firmino finally opened the floodgates in the second half.

Reflecting on that fact, Alexander-Arnold said: "At half-time, we knew the performance had to improve, we knew we had to take our chances and that's what we did in the second half. 

"We've got attackers who are really ruthless in front of goal and who will put them away. The midfielders did well to put it on a plate and they went away and finished the chances off. 

"We came away with a 5-0 win and not too many negatives to take away from the game."

The defender isn't planning on dwelling on his big moment and another comfortable victory for Jürgen Klopp's team, however. 

With Leicester City, Burnley and Everton - the latter in the FA Cup - to come in the next 11 days, Alexander-Arnold is calling for his teammates to quickly refocus.

He continued: "[It's] huge because there are two competitions, three games in quick succession, and we need to get the results and the points on board and that's what we'll look to do. 

"We'll put this game behind us and push forward onto the game on Saturday. 

"We know it's important to reflect on the game, pick up some points to take forward for us, but also leave it behind us because there are plenty more games to come and they're more important than what's just happened."
