Alexander-Arnold posts Twitter message after Liverpool draw
By Harvey Byrne
Trent Alexander-Arnold shared on Twitter that he was disappointed Liverpool didn’t claim all three points in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United.
However, the 18-year-old full-back did state that it was a “great experience” for him.
Jurgen Klopp handed the young Reds starlet his first Premier League start at Old Trafford with usual right-back Nathaniel Clyne missing the clash with a rib injury.
It was a stage which would have seen many young footballers crack under the pressure, but many were pleased with what they saw from Alexander-Arnold.
The teenager dealt with the more experienced Antony Martial well down his flank and on his personal Twitter account after the match he shared a picture of them both, while hailing the experience.

Klopp has given a lot of opportunities to young players in the first team and against Plymouth earlier in the month he named the youngest ever Liverpool line-up with an average age of just 21 years and 296 days.
The Merseyside giants have a strong history of bringing through young players with Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Robbie Fowler all coming through the club’s ranks.
Fans will now be hoping that Alexander-Arnold can be remembered alongside those names in the future.
