The Standard Chartered Men’s Player of the Month for April at Liverpool is Trent Alexander-Arnold.
The No. 66 started six of the Reds’ seven games while playing in a new hybrid role that regularly has him go into midfield while on the ball, and he contributed to each of their past four Premier League victories in April.
Alexander-Arnold contributed six assists along the way, including the one that led to Roberto Firmino’s equalizer against Arsenal, two at Leeds United, and one each in the triumphs over Nottingham Forest, West Ham United, and Tottenham Hotspur.
He won the last award for 2022–23, defeating Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah in our Player of the Month poll on Liverpoolfc.com.

As he accepted the honor, Alexander-Arnold said to Liverpoolfc.com, “It’s an honor.” a ᴘᴏsɪᴛɪᴠᴇ month. Both individually and as a team, we’ve had a successful month.
“We put together a nice run of performances, victories, and solid form. Therefore, it’s an honor and something we’ve striven towards.
Liverpool kept up their strong play into May, winning consecutively at home by 1-0 scores against Fulham and Brentford to extend their winning streak to six games.
When asked what, in his opinion, has changed in recent weeks, Alexander-Arnold said, “Consistency. I believe we’ve produced ᴘᴏsɪᴛɪᴠᴇ outcomes, followed them up in the game after with another, and now we’ve just kind of gotten consistency in that forward momentum again. That, in my opinion, has made the largest difference for us.
He continued, “[We’re enjoying our football] a lot, and I think that comes across in the team and in the way we play. Recently, we’ve recorded clean sheets and during the course of the month, we’ve also scored a lot of goals.
“It has been an exciting month, one where in a not-so-good season this has probably been the best month we’ve had, and it is showing signs of ending hopefully well.”

Liverpool pay huge salary for Mac Allister to overcome Man United
Liverpool have not played well this season. They were eliminated in cup tournaments, and were at a disadvantage in the race to the Top 4 of the Premier League. No wonder Klopp is eager to rebuild midfield, with some leaving Anfield this summer.
Arthur Melo has not made any impact since signing on loan, and he is close to returning to Juventus. Other midfielders including Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also set to leave the club when their contracts expire after this season. James Milner will also leave at the end of the season.
Liverpool pay huge salary to entice Mac Allister
A few goals have come into the sights of the Port City team. Football Insider reports that Liverpool have offered to triple Mac Allister’s salary in an attempt to sign the Brighton midfielder in the summer of 2023.
The source said, Liverpool have contacted Mac Allister’s agent and made an attractive contract offer. The 2022 World Cup winner only receives £50,000 a week in Brighton, and Liverpool can meet his salary of more than £150,000 a week.
The 24-year-old star has two years left on his contract, so Liverpool will have to spend around £50 million on Mac Allister, who has scored 10 goals and provided two assists in 35 games this season. It is worth noting that Erik ten Hag also rated Mac Allister and wanted MU to take him to Old Trafford
