Liverpool owe a lot to their full backs. We wouldn’t be where we are now without the unrelenting pendulums which swing between defence and attack. The use of wing backs has become a trademark of Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool. Gary Neville has heaped praise on Trent Alexander-Arnold but has suggested he can learn from Andy Robertson.
Scouser in our team
22-year-old Scouser Trent Alexander-Arnold has ripped up the rule book for right backs.
The youngster has rapidly established himself as the best in the world in his position.
He has done so by completely revolutionising what can be expected of full backs.
He dictates the game from the right of defence.
His range of passing and his crossing ability have made him unstoppable in recent years.
Records have been broken left and right and they will continue to tumble in the years to come.
Gary Neville on Trent Alexander-Arnold
Monday Night Football is always a treat when it comes to football analysis.
This week saw Gary Neville heap praise on Trent Alexander-Arnold.
The Man United legend was waxing lyrical about the Scouser but suggested he can learn a thing or two from a teammate:
Trent Alexander-Arnold is a star. He mesmerizes me as a full back, to think that a full back can do what he can do.
“But if he wants to look anywhere on what to become in the next five years, it’s the left back he’s playing with.
“To get as good as him defensively, be as consistent as him, to be as absolutely intense as him in every minute of every game.
“Alexander-Arnold has the perfect person to look at to get even better than he is now, which is some level.”
What RTK has to say
Gary Neville heaping praise on Trent Alexander-Arnold comes as no surprise.
The Scouser does everything that the United legend didn’t.
Neville was expected to defend, to keep wingers out.
Trent does all of that and then some.
He does have a point in that Robbo is who Trent needs to be looking towards.
Whilst the Scouser is pretty solid defensively there’s certainly room for improvement and improve he will.
