Liverpool stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to six matches on Saturday with a dominant 3-0 win over Bournemouth at Anfield.
Ten points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea with just a handful of games remaining, they appear destined to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season even if they don’t win the competition itself this term.
Getting off to a flyer thanks to Sadio Mane, the Reds made it comfortable in the 69th minute after Mohamed Salah scored his 40th goal of the season, before Roberto Firmino rounded things off in the final moments of the match.
Salah’s goal was assisted by Trent Alexander-Arnold, who produced a stunning cross to bamboozle the Cherries defence which was met with a classy header from the Egyptian.
For many fans, Alexander-Arnold was the stand-out performer across the 90 minutes and some even reckon he’s now one of, if the best, full-backs in the entire country.
It’s easy to forget he is just 19 years of age given the heights he has reached this season and supporters can’t get enough.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his display…
TAA attitude in interviews is top class, always acknowledges help from teammates and just comes across as a down to earth kid living the dream, delighted for him, he deserves everything he gets, undoubtedly a future Liverpool captain in my eyes.👍👌🔴⚽️👊 #LFC #RedOrDead

Trent Alexander Arnold. Really running out of words to describe that right back of ours. Easily one of the best in the country right now. #LFC
