A war of words broke out before Liverpool, the leader of the English Premier League, and its guest, Manchester City, which is in second place, at Anfield next Sunday, after Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold said that winning championships means a lot to his club.

British news agency PA Media reported that Liverpool defender Arnold said in statements to Four Four Two magazine: “Back to this era, and despite them winning many titles and being more successful, our championships will still mean a lot to us and our fan base because of the financial situation.” For both clubs.”

For his part, Manchester City and Erling Haaland striker, who scored 52 goals in his team’s treble victory last season (league, cup and Champions League) and added 29 more goals this season, responded sharply to the Liverpool defender’s statements.

The Norwegian national team striker told Sky Sports: “If he wants to say that, well, I’ve been here for a year and won the treble and that’s a very wonderful feeling.”

He added: “I don’t think he knows that feeling well, so that’s what I felt last season. It was really wonderful.”

Haaland continued: “They can talk however they want, and he can talk however he wants. I don’t know why he did that, but I don’t care.”

Arnold, who described City as a machine built to win, will miss the match due to a knee injury.

Manchester City is one point behind leaders Liverpool, with ten matches remaining for each team in the current season.

For his part, Swiss Manuel Akanji, Manchester City defender, said: “It will definitely be a great match. The winner will go to the top of the league. I don’t want to talk about the race to win the title, but that will be a big win for us.”

He concluded: “We did not give our best in the past here, but why not change that this week.”
