Trent Alexander-Arnold masterclass highlights Jurgen Klopp’s selection blunder against Manchester United

Trent Alexander-Arnold provided three assists last night.

Trent Alexander-Arnold returned to the Liverpool starting line-up and helped his side return to winning ways in midweek.

Liverpool recorded a comfortable 5-0 win over Watford to ensure they kept their spot at the top of the Premier League.

And Alexander-Arnold played a major role in Liverpool’s victory, providing three assists for the Reds.

The 20-year-old right-back was a constant threat down the flank for Liverpool and his inch-perfect crossing caused havoc in the Watford area.

Alexander-Arnold provided the assists for both of Sadio Mane’s goals. His cross was headed in by the Senegal forward before another cross was met with a cheeky back-heel goal.

Late in the game, the England international sent a lovely whipped free-kick into the area and Virgil Van Dijk headed in from close range.

Alexander-Arnold certainly proved his point to Jurgen Klopp: he should be playing every game.

 

And his masterclass from right-back just highlighted the error that Klopp made in last weekend’s trip to Old Trafford.

Alexander-Arnold was dropped and replaced by James Milner for the game with Manchester United but Liverpool struggled to threaten.

Milner’s crossing was highly criticised and the game ended in a 0-0 draw.

Alexander-Arnold’s delivery from set-pieces and open play is superior to anyone else in this Liverpool squad at the moment.

And after the local boy picked up his fourth, fifth and sixth assists of the season, Klopp will surely realise he made a mistake last weekend.
