Trent Alexander-Arnold dealt with Jake Humphrey's line of questioning superbly

Liverpool FC v Arsenal FC - Premier League

After thrashing Arsenal 5-1 at Anfield, bookmakers now make Liverpool odds-on favourites to win their first ever Premier League title.

Liverpool’s convincing victory sent them nine points clear at the top - with Manchester City having the chance to trim that lead to seven points when they travel to Southampton.

Liverpool and City then meet on Thursday at the Etihad in a match that could have a huge say in the outcome of the title.

But while everyone else is talking about Jurgen Klopp’s side winning the league, it seems Liverpool players themselves certainly aren’t.

After the win against Arsenal, BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey was chatting with Trent Alexander-Arnold and was clearly trying to get a headline from the youngster.

Humphrey asked several questions about Liverpool becoming champions and even asked the young right-back to ‘forget about what the club press officer has told him to say.’

The 20-year-old could have become flustered and slipped up but he continued batting away Humphrey’s questions and didn’t give him what he wanted - a headline.

But was an interview that many football fans - and Liverpool fans - found rather uncomfortable and slammed Humphrey for his unprofessionalism.

Check out the reaction:

Nice one, Trent.

After the match, it wasn’t just Alexander-Arnold playing down title-talk. That’s because his manager, Klopp, did the same in his post-match interview.

"I'm not the smartest person in the world but I'm really not an idiot - not always at least," Klopp said.

"It's not important how many points you are ahead in December - even if it's the end of December."
