Football fans took to Twitter to rave about Trent Alexander-Arnold for his performance in Liverpool’s 2-2 Premier League draw against Tottenham on Sunday.
The 19-year-old was selected to start at right-back in Jurgen Klopp’s 4-3-3 formation at Anfield.
Liverpool flew out of the blocks and took the lead after three minutes through Mohamed Salah in a dominant first-half performance.
Victor Wanyama levelled with a sensational strike and, then, in an extraordinary climax, Salah added a second after a missed Harry Kane penalty before the Tottenham striker struck the equaliser with a second spot-kick in the fourth minute of added time.
In a thrilling match, Alexander-Arnold was outstanding at full-back both in attacking and defensive situations.
It was not just Liverpool supporters who took to social media to hail the academy product’s display in what was a raucous atmosphere at Anfield.
Followers of other clubs were equally positive about the Liverpool man, who is rotated with Joe Gomez at right-back on a virtual match-by-match basis.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Trent Alexander-Arnold has everything you want in a modern right back. Shows how out of place Gomez is there in my opinion. Gomez has everything to become a class CB though.
