In Liverpool’s win over Leeds, Gary Neville was so impressed with Trent Alexander-Arnold that he compared him to two legendary Premier League midfielders, but argued that playing him in their positions is a ‘no-go.’
At Elland Road, the England international was at his best, sprinting down the right flank to set up Mohamed Salah’s opener before swinging in the corner to cause havoc in the Leeds box in the build-up to Fabinho’s goal.
Alexander-Arnold was chastised when Liverpool’s championship defense faltered and his performances plummeted, but he’s returned to form in 2021-22, with his passing being compared to that of David Beckham and Kevin de Bruyne.
Alexander-Arnold has two assists in four Premier League games this season, compared to seven last season. Like in 2018-19 and the title-winning 2019-20 season, he’ll be trying to hit double figures this season.
Both Neville and Jamie Carragher, though, agree that the 22-year-old is better off scoring goals from full-back rather than going up to midfield.
