EPL: How Liverpool caused Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa – Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has said Arsenal lost to Aston Villa last Sunday because they were “excited”.

Earlier in the day, Alexander-Arnold came on as a substitute, but could not stop his team from losing 1-0 at home to Crystal Palace.

Hours later, the Gunners missed the chance to go top, as they were beaten 2-0 by Aston Villa at the Emirates.

“If those fixtures were reversed and we played second and Arsenal played first maybe it would’ve been a different mentality. It all comes down to mentality.

“I think our result played a part in Arsenal’s result. They have potentially got too excited and thought this is our chance, this is what we need to do.

“Maybe they overthought things whereas if us and City both won it made them think, ‘we need to just win’ rather than it being a chance to breakaway from the pack. None of us have been in a three-horse race, so it’s difficult,” Alexander-Arnold said.
