Trent Alexander-Arnold has paid tribute to Jurgen Klopp for the mentality he has instilled in the Liverpool squad.

Klopp famously dubbed his players "mentality monsters" after they came back from three-goal first-leg deficit to beat Barcelona 4-0 in the Champions League semi-final last May before going on to lift the European Cup in Madrid a few weeks later.

That followed on from a 97-point Premier League finish last term and Klopp 's side have lost just two games in 67 top-flight games under the German, dating back to the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

Alexander-Arnold says such consistency is fed down from the manager to the rest of the squad with Liverpool waiting to resume Premier League action to collect the six points needed from the final nine games to become champions for the first time since 1990.

In a documentary titled Behind the Dream, Alexander-Arnold told Liverpool model Rubi Deschamps how Klopp has been the driving force behind the club's success over the last two years.

"It's a just confidence in everything that we do and that just comes from him," Alexander-Arnold says..

"Everything is him and I don't think people realise the messages he gives us, the motivation, the mentality we all have is through him.

"He is the person that leads the club. He makes every decision at the club.

"So the way that the team is playing or the way that the team does things or the club is doing things at the minute is all down to him."

In the YouTube documentary, Alexander-Arnold also detailed how he deals with jeering from rival fans, offering a revealing example from earlier this season in a 2-1 win over Wolves.

He said: "At times I can hear fans but most of the time, I can't.

"If it is a corner or a throw-in, I can because you are not fully concentrating. Like in the middle of a game, you are fully concentrating and cannot hear anything.

"I remember Wolves away this season, I got an assist [for Jordan Henderson] and I remember the ball went into the crowd and the fans took the ball.

"I was there waiting for the ball, I turned around and as I have turned around, they have thrown it at me!

"So I've been thinking: 'Ah! that is cheeky!'. So I thought let me try here...and I got an assist from it. Off the same corner."
