In our poll yesterday, we asked Liverpool fans whether they would prefer to have Trent Alexander-Arnold starting at right-back for Newcastle’s visit to Anfield this weekend or Joe Gomez.
Gomez has been Jurgen Klopp’s dependable choice in the position for most of the season, but Trent Alexander-Arnold has stepped in well in recent weeks to replace the Charlton academy product.
Alexander-Arnold is even younger than Gomez at just 19 years of age, but he possesses a greater attacking instinct than the more defensively solid 20-year-old.
Playing against a Newcastle team that put in a backs-to-the-wall job to seal victory in their last league encounter with a top four side, Klopp may favour the Alexander-Arnold as he tries to break down a tough Magpies rearguard.
Most Liverpool fans who responded to our poll generally agreed with this approach, with 69% of them saying that they would prefer to play the teenager this weekend.
