Trent Alexander-Arnold: Pundit makes 'unheard of' Liverpool claim as 'ridiculous' footage emerges

Paul Robinson has claimed Trent Alexander-Arnold “makes such a difference” to Liverpool when he is in the side.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England number one said the 23-year-old’s vision and passing range is “unheard of” for a full-back.

Alexander-Arnold returned to the Reds starting XI at Benfica on Tuesday night after missing two weeks through injury.

As shown on BT Sport (5 April), the right-back played a sublime pass in the build up to Liverpool’s second goal in a 3-1 win at the Estadio da Luz.

It was one of a number of eye-catching passes from the England international on his return from injury.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of Alexander-Arnold’s display, Robinson said: “His vision is ridiculous.

“The quality that he brings on the ball is there for all to see. He makes such a difference when he is in that side.

“He is an outstanding talent. His vision and his passing is almost unheard of for a full-back. His delivery from set-plays is always on the money as well.

“Make no mistake about it, he is a top, top-class right-back. He’ll only get better as well.”

Alexander Arnold has been one of Liverpool’s standout players this season, with two goals and 17 assists to his name in 36 appearances across all competitions.

He put pen to paper on a new four-year deal at Anfield last July.
