Danny Murphy thinks Trent Alexander-Arnold’s crossing is already as good as legendary Premier League midfielder David Beckham.
We reckon the former Manchester United and Real Madrid ace was actually overrated for his overall football ability – but absolutely cannot deny his crossing was ludicrously good.
The manner in which he delivered whipped balls in from the touchline, without having to beat the left-back, was sensational.
Trent registered an assist for Liverpool on Friday night, making him the only Liverpool star in Premier League history to pick one up in five consecutive matches.
‘Trent’s display of passing and technical ability that we’ve not seen in a full-back for many, many years,’ Murphy told talkSPORT, cited in the Metro.
‘Trent, for me, is as good a crosser of the ball I’ve seen since David Beckham.
‘His crossing is already as good as Beckham, definitely. His set plays and crossing are both phenomenal.
‘His technical ability, his passing ability is very unusual for a full-back, normally it’s a midfielder who possess that type of quality.’
With Andy Robertson on the other flank, our creativity from out-wide is up there with the team’s best assets.
The pace and shooting ability of the front-three is also up there, as well as the brilliance of our centre-backs and work-rate of the central midfielders.
It’s essential to us though that Trent and Robbo remain fit. We have very little in terms of options behind those two and the likes of Joe Gomez and James Milner, who’d surely play in their place, don’t have the same ability to assist from right-back and left-back.
