Trent Alexander-Arnold has suggested that he’s ready to play in midfield after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea this weekend.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the England international revealed that he would be up for playing in midfield with Liverpool currently without an anchorman, with Jurgen Klopp’s XI on Sunday lacking a defensive midfielder.

Alexander-Arnold impressed against Chelsea as the right-back was again playing in an inverted role that provided some incredible results last season for the Reds in the final fixtures of the campaign.

And the 24-year-old now looks ready to take the next step in his football evolution by playing in the midfield role straight from the off, something that could have happened yesterday against Chelsea.

Indeed, Alexander-Arnold’s future with Liverpool looks set to be in midfield, and the England international sounds keen to play in the role if given the chance.

The Liverpool star said: “It’s something I’d be up for and something I’d enjoy playing but it’s not my decision. If and when that decision does come I would learn from the job and try and make it work.”

Alexander-Arnold looks primed to take on a midfield role given the limited options Liverpool currently have in the position, with many expecting the 24-year-old to start in the centre against Chelsea.

Whilst the defender might still have to wait his turn to play in midfield, it doesn’t feel like it’ll be long before Alexander-Arnold is starting for Liverpool and operating as the heartbeat of the entire XI.

And with Alexander-Arnold now confident about himself starting for Liverpool in midfield, the England international could be on his path to becoming a superstar in the role.
