Trent Alexander-Arnold goal celebration punishment has been decided.

Liverpool’s equalizer against Man City was scored by Trent Alexander-Arnold, and the full-back celebrated by making a shushing gesture in front of the opposing supporters.
A decision has been reached regarding whether or not he should face additional action.

In the 80th minute, Alexander-Arnold equalized for Liverpool and chose to celebrate by going over to a corner flag, putting his finger to his lips, and making a shushing motion towards the furious home crowd.

Normally, a yellow card would be issued for such behavior, but Alexander-Arnold avoided punishment at the time and doesn’t seem to have any disciplinary action against him thereafter.

Numerous reports in the wake of the incident indicate that the FA is not even looking into the issue, and that no further action would be taken.

Alexander-Arnold, who is later cited as saying: “It’s always good to celebrate in front of [opposing] fans,” made it evident that the celebration was a planned action. It’s funny to see all of the faces.”

Alexander-Arnold was referred to as the “complete package” by Reds captain Virgil van Dijk following the game, which saw City player Bernardo Silva declare Liverpool to be “back”.

At the Etihad Stadium, Van Dijk evaluated the player after the game. “He offers a lot defensively and, obviously in possession, he has qualities that are very special and he shows that as well, so he has the complete package,” Van Dijk said.

Thirty minutes into the 2023–24 Premier League season, Liverpool is only one point behind City, with leaders Arsenal leading the way.

However, the focus will shift from domestic football this midweek to the Europa League, where Jurgen Klopp’s team will play Austria’s LASK on Thursday. A win would ensure the team advances to the knockout stages.

“He has to keep doing what he’s doing, keep improving, keep that high standard he has for himself and we all have for him as well.”
