Liverpool fans took to Twitter to applaud the performance of the right-back and have tipped him to have a huge future.

Clyne is Liverpool’s clear first-choice option at right-back but Jurgen Klopp could consider using Alexander-Arnold as his understudy.

The youngster had already made 10 appearances for England’s Under-17 side and is continuing his impressive development.

Alexander-Arnold was born in Liverpool and is hopeful of playing in the first-team for his hometown club.
