Trent Alexander-Arnold insists he is unfazed by the prospect of facing Roma in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night.

Jurgen Klopp's side take a 5-2 lead to the Italian capital with the safety of Liverpool's players and fans a major talking point ahead of the game, after Reds supporter Sean Cox was attacked ahead of the first leg at Anfield last week.

Liverpool have urged supporters to avoid areas in the north of Rome, particularly those around the Ponte Milvio Bridge, when they play Roma on Wednesday.

Liverpool still have work to do to advance to the final in Kiev on May 26, but Alexander-Arnold is ready for the challenge.

The 19-year-old was cruelly exposed by Manchester United's Marcus Rashford and Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha in quick succession in March but has since bounced back with a string of good performances.

"We are going there with a job to do, to go there and win," he said of the trip to Rome.

"I try not to [get fazed]. Obviously we know it is going to be an intimidating atmosphere and that is what they will look to do, just as our fans did to them.

"We have to be prepared mentally and physically."

Asked how he will cope, Liverpool-born Alexander-Arnold said: "Just think as mature as possible. Look at the players around you and what they do in this situation.

"The senior players have helped me. Maybe earlier in the season I would not have made the decisions I do now. I can see what I could do better and it prepares me.

"You train all your life - for years - for these types of games and these chances. Everything I have done so far is to prepare me for a game like Wednesday."

The England Under-21 international, who has a chance of making Gareth Southgate's senior squad for this summer's World Cup, admits his ordeal at Old Trafford has proved to be a key moment in his season.

"A tough game, a tough day. One of those you learn from," he added. "The mistakes I made that day I learned from to make sure it does not happen again.

"I have tried to bounce back from them and prove myself with good performances from that day."
