Gareth Southgate snub of Trent Alexander-Arnold should benefit Liverpool

Liverpool haven’t had their best season. Jürgen Klopp has seen his side slide down the table as an unprecedented injury crisis has finally taken its toll on the lads. We’ve seen poor form throughout the side, the England manager has too apparently. Gareth Southgate leaving Trent Alexander-Arnold out of the England squad should see the Scouser hit the form of his life.

Alexander-Arnold season

This season has seen a massive drop off in output from our Scouse right back.

The 22-year-old who has been posting record numbers in back to back seasons has managed just three assists in the Premier League this term.

This drop can be explained by a lengthy injury lay off and a change in opposition tactics.

We’re facing more low and narrow blocks which are limiting the efficacy of Trent’s crossing.

The front three have also been missing chance after chance in recent months.

Gareth Southgate snubs Trent Alexander-Arnold

There was a sense of shock when the latest Three Lions squad was announced.

Gareth Southgate left Trent Alexander-Arnold out of the England squad for this international break’s three World Cup qualifiers.

Fans and pundits alike questioned the decision, particularly given that Kieran Trippier was included in the squad despite having served a lengthy ban this term.

Form of his life

With the Euros coming and the England boss apparently ranking Reece James as the current number one choice at right back we should see Trent Alexander-Arnold hit the form of his life.

The Scouser will be determined to play himself into the Euros squad for this summer.

He’ll need to impress from now until the end of the season, given the uphill task the Reds face this extra slice of motivation may have come at the perfect time for Trent.
