Trent looking forward to Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid tie

Liverpool's young Scouse superstar, Trent Alexander-Arnold, is looking forward to Liverpool testing themselves against Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.

The Champions of Europe will commence defending their title, once again, when the competition restarts in February, with the first leg at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The first leg will take place on the 18th February and it promises to be one of the top ties of the first round of knockout matches.

It's something that the 21 year old is looking forward to the occasion too. He told the club's official match-day programme: "We’ve got a difficult draw.

"Atletico Madrid are a stubborn team, one that’s hard to break down, and a passionate team with a passionate manager.

"It’ll be interesting to see the two managers on the touchline and see who is more passionate!

"We enjoyed the Champions League last year because we had such a tough run. Every game we had to get to the final was against a different type of opponent after a really tough group.

"We had a tough group this year and a tough round of 16 opponent again, but we like to be tested as a team because it brings the best out of us.

"Hopefully we’ll be able to go back to Istanbul again, which would be massive for the club, but to have a perfect 2020 we need to win as many trophies as possible."
