Jamie Redknapp has told Sky Sports that Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is currently “way off it” and is one of a number of Reds players that is feeling sorry for himself – following the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea.
The 22-year-old has been one of the players to have suffered from the loss of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez – as Jordan Henderson has moved into defence and his defensive cover has been lost. It has highlighted weaknesses.
Alexander-Arnold has been forced to defend more this season than in the past – and is struggling. Clearly, the England man is much better going forward than he is when defending, and Redknapp has criticised him.
Following a match in which Mason Mount scored the winner after cutting inside from Alexander-Arnold’s flank, Redknapp delivered a scathing attack of the right-back – stating his confidence seems “extremely low”.
