Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Alexander-Arnold display v Tottenham

By Alex Stevens

Trent Alexander-Arnold looked the part on his Liverpool debut – and fans on Twitter claimed the club have unearthed another gem.

The Merseysiders, who made 11 changes from the weekend, beat Tottenham 2-1 in the League Cup fourth-round clash on Tuesday night to secure a place in Wednesday’s quarter-final draw.

Alexander-Arnold delivered a buccaneering display from right-back, defending solidly and providing an impressive attacking option.

But the academy product received a yellow card in the opening period for a rash tackle and manager Jurgen Klopp opted to withdraw the teenager as part of a double substitution midway through the second half.

The 18-year-old was replaced at right-back by England international Nathaniel Clyne.
