Future captain: Liverpool fans lavish praise on Trent Alexander-Arnold

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.
