Trent Alexander-Arnold is starting to look like a special player.
It’s early we know but there is no reason why he can’t be starting for the first team next season at this rate. Look at how well Jon Flanagan did during the 2013/2014 campaign.
Not only is the full-back’s technical ability something to be admired, but he brings a local passion and desire that seems to get Reds fans excited every time he is on the ball.
At 18-years-old he looks a class above his U23s opponents and with plenty of time to continue developing and progressing his game, has the potential to be one of the Premier League’s top full-backs in the future.
He is moulding into the ultimate athlete in terms of possessing the pace and energy to offer alongside his admittedly exquisite touch, impressive crossing and his ability to beat defenders. Add strength and a some more experience to that and we have ourselves a player.
Monday night’s 2-0 win for the U23s against Chelsea saw him earn the penalty that Harry Wilson converted to put the Reds 1-0 up before securing the victory with a sublime free-kick from 20-yards out.
Liverpool look well set up at right back for the next few years.
