Alexander-Arnold had a cheeky dig at Mbappe after mimicking his goal celebration – then the PSG star responded, fuelling speculation over potential Anfield transfer.
Kylian Mbappe has responded after Trent Alexander-Arnold copied his goal celebration following his stunning effort in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Leicester .
Alexander-Arnold created two then scored the fourth as Liverpool thumped second-placed Leicester to go 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League on Boxing Day.
He celebrated his goal by mimicking Mbappe’s trademark style, with his arms folded across his chest.
Alexander-Arnold then tweeted a picture of himself copying Mbappe, saying: “Anything Mbappe can do…” along with a crying laughing emoji and the hashtag YNWA (You’ll Never Walk Alone).
Mbappe has long been linked with a move to Liverpool – and the French World Cup winner got in on the act himself, liking a post on Twitter comparing pictures of the two players.
