Alexander-Arnold fully establishing himself as first-choice. Unbelievable talent. Still only 19. Bright future ahead.

Alexander-Arnold is 19 years old and is a starter for Liverpool, creates amazing chances and defends extremely well. Really pacey and talented attacking and defending wise. Underrated youngster. Needs to be talked about more. One for the future this lad is
