'On another level': Gary Lineker says Liverpool have a 'sublime' talent in their ranks

Gary Lineker has deemed Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander Arnold “sublime” and “on another level” following his latest heroics.

The Reds star is arguably the best right-back in world football right now, but his spot in the England team is not assured.

However, the 23-year-old was back in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI at Watford in Saturday’s early Premier League kickoff.

And he delivered a superb display, showcasing his incredible range of passing and twice slicing through the Hornets back line.

Alexander-Arnold also defended solidly, part of a defence that ultimately kept a routine clean sheet against Claudio Ranieri’s side.

Liverpool ran out 5-0 winners, with Roberto Firmino netting a hat-trick and Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane also getting on the scoresheet.

His 64th-minute substitution, with a view to Tuesday’s Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid, was testament to how important he is to the side.

Here is what Gary Lineker tweeted about the Liverpool star:

England are next in action in November 12 and 15, facing Albania and then San Marino in their final World Cup qualifiers.

Alexander-Arnold was unlucky to miss out on Euro 2020 due to injury, but even amid the strong competition at right-back in the England squad, he can’t not play a part for his nation.
