Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table with a 2-0 win over Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
And it would be fair to say that the Merseyside club’s fans were pleased with the performance of right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, valued at £45 million by Transfermarkt.
According to WhoScored, the 20-year-old made three tackles, had two shots and boasted a pass success rate of 75%.
The Englishman is far from the finished package, but the signs are that he will go on to become one of the best right-backs in the league, if he is not already.
Liverpool have talent all over the park, but the performances of full-backs Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson have been special throughout the campaign.
Are the media letting Jurgen Klopp off lightly for his lack of silverware? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
The club’s official Twitter account paid tribute to Alexander-Arnold following the win over Maurizio Sarri’s side.
And that led to a number of the supporters lavishing praise on the 5 ft 9 ace – a selection of which can be seen below:

The boy can hit a cross perfectly. Always dangerous balls into the box
