Trent Alexander-Arnold wants to use Liverpool's encouraging response against Arsenal as a catalyst for a strong finish to the season.

The Reds fought back in a thrilling duel with the Premier League leaders at Anfield on Sunday, with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino netting to overcome a two-goal deficit and secure a point.

In fact, Jürgen Klopp's men were somewhat disappointed to not walk away with all three, having created numerous opportunities in a much-improved second-half showing.

"Ibou had a big chance and obviously the pen. It's one of those days. We did all we could," Alexander-Arnold told

"We take the point and try to improve it next week. We've got a full week to go and train, and that's what we need to go and do.

"We have our targets and it's going to be difficult to get Champions League football now I think. But it's still mathematically possible, so as long as that's possible then that's what we go for.

"We're not in the position we want to be in at all but there's still nine games to go. That's where our heads are at – let's go and try to win all nine."

Liverpool plan to build on the positives drawn from the clash with the Gunners when they travel to Leeds United next Monday.

"We showed a different side to us," the No.66 analysed. "One that we've had in previous seasons, where we get past disappointment and are able to get back into games – and we showed that, so that's a decent sign.

"But we need to be getting three points. No matter whether we're playing top of the league or bottom of the league, three points is our aim and we know we could have got that [against Arsenal].

"We showed a different side to us. We showed that we really wanted to go out there and put a good performance in.

"Even though you're playing probably the best team in the league, we still showed our quality and dominated them for the whole second half and should've won the game."
