Trent Alexander-Arnold is backing Adrian to step up when he features in Liverpool FC’s clash with Everton on Wednesday night.

Alisson Becker was sent off for a handball in the second half of Liverpool FC’s 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in the top flight on Saturday afternoon, with Adrian replacing the shot-stopper.

Alisson will miss Wednesday night’s Merseyside derby clash as a result of his suspension, but Alexander-Arnold is not expecting Adrian to have any problems when he steps in for the first-choice goalkeeper.

Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC’s website, Alexander-Arnold said: “We have had setbacks throughout the course of the season, we have had injuries and suspensions.

“We’ll be looking to Adrian to come in and do a shift for us like he did at the start of the season.

“We’ve all got the trust in him and he knows how good he is as a ‘keeper and how much we need him. So he’ll be raring to go.

“It’s not too much of a blow when you know you’ve got such a quality ‘keeper waiting in the ranks.”

Liverpool FC head into the game flying high at the top of the Premier League table, having won 13 of their 14 games this season and only dropping points in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

The Reds are aiming to go one step further than they did last season this term, as they aim to win the Premier League title after having finished a point behind the champions Manchester City back in May.

Liverpool FC will travel to Bournemouth in their next Premier League game on Saturday lunchtime, before a trip to RB Salzburg in the Champions League on Tuesday 10 December.
