Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to reveal their concerns over Trent Alexander-Arnold’s performance against Napoli on Sunday.
The 20-year-old right-back enjoyed a stellar 2018/19 campaign, playing a crucial role in the Reds’ sixth major European Cup win as well as their impressive 97-point Premier League season, however, he looked well off the pace against the Serie A side.
Jurgen Klopp’s men fell to a 3-0 defeat against Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli after goals from Lorenzo Insigne, Arkadiusz Milik and Amin Younes, and the Liverpool fans highlighted the six-cap England international’s performance as particularly worrying on the day.
In fairness, the academy graduate doesn’t have any competition for his place other than the versatile James Milner, after Nathaniel Clyne suffered a serious knee injury, but his unconvincing performance will still send concern around Anfield going into the new season.
Let’s see what the Reds supporters on Twitter thought of the 5 foot 9 defender’s showing…
Anyone else concerned by Trent’s positioning and overall play today?

He needs competition. Far too relaxed. He knows that position is his for the next decade. Or he needs a kick up the backside.

Yes. He looked too relax in that position. Need some competition in that position.

It’s always been that way, and sadly enough he is too comfortable there coz there is no direct competition for him.
