Trent Alexander-Arnold has said “something’s not going right” with Liverpool after they fell to a second successive Premier League defeat.
Liverpool were beaten 2-1 at home by Leeds on Saturday, a week after a shock 1-0 loss at Nottingham Forest.
Defender Alexander-Arnold said the Reds still have self-belief, but said setbacks “potentially make you second-guess yourself and question things”.
“Clearly as a team something’s not going right,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“It’s not going as well as we want it to go.
“That’s something for everyone to think about, for everyone to address and make sure we put it right, especially next week against Spurs, top-four rivals.
“We kind of need to go there and get some points if we’ve got any chance of reaching our aims and aspirations for the season.”
Crysencio Summerville scored a dramatic late winner at Anfield as Leeds won to move out of the relegation zone.
Defeat has left Liverpool eight points adrift of the top four, with a game in hand, before they visit third-placed Tottenham in the league next Sunday.
After that, they have one more Premier League
ure, at home to Southampton on 12 November, before the competition stops for just over six weeks to make way for the World Cup in Qatar.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have won four, drawn four and lost four so far this season with 16 points. At this stage in the last campaign, Liverpool had 25 points and had lost just once.
“I think we are not in the greatest run of form – I think a lot of players would say that about themselves and as a team in general,” added Alexander-Arnold, who was replaced by James Milner during the Leeds defeat.
“I think it’s important for us to regroup, assess what’s going wrong. I think right now, it’s kind of, ‘pick up as many points as you can now going into this break’.
“And potentially this break will come at a decent time for us to reset and be able to get our heads straight to go into the second half of the season.”
