Speaking to Sky Sports, Alexander-Arnold said: “The only thing that’s really changed is that he (Rashford) has probably scored a lot recently, but he’s the same player, he’s always a threat.” And I’m sure he’ll be a threat on Sunday.”
“It’s hard [to stop Rashford], He is a player who has got a lot of weapons in his arsenal but I think it is more of a team effort, it will not be just a one-off thing,” he said.
The 24-year-old also said, “They will have more than just Marcus to push forward, it’s a team thing and as long as the team wins on Sunday, that’s all I care about.”
After a string of injuries, the last few seasons and poor form on the pitch for both club and country, Rashford is back this season. He has scored 14 goals in the league and 25 in all competitions so far this season.
When asked about Liverpool’s recent resurgence after a poor start in the league, Alexander-Arnold said, “We’re getting results together and we’re playing some good football as well.”
“We’ve got wins on the board, especially at this time of the season, and we need to keep going as far as we can. We are on the right track but we need to move forward.
Liverpool are sixth in the points table on 39 points with six points adrift of Tottenham who currently occupy the fourth Champions League spot.
Speaking about it, the right-back said, “It’s important for us to get points on the board and that’s where we will stand when April and May come, but for now we need to make sure We are in a good position to move forward.
“Three points against a team like [Manchester] United will really help us achieve that on Sunday. He added.
Alexander-Arnold said, “It’s not often you beat United 4–0, it was a great game, we played excellently.”
