Amid the long-term absence of Nathaniel Clyne due to injury, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been battling it out for the England international’s right-back slot at Liverpool this season.
The former has proved the preferred option on the most part, but the latter – a Liverpool academy product – has shown real promise when brought into the starting XI, especially going forward.
So with a huge game against Manchester City on the cards this Sunday, we asked Liverpool fans earlier this week whether Gomez or Alexander-Arnold should start at No.2 against Pep Guardiola’s side.
And our poll revealed opinions amongst Liverpool fans are incredibly divided at the moment – with only 10% splitting the two youngsters and Gomez coming out on top. That’s most likely because he’s the more natural defender, whereas Alexander-Arnold looks to contribute offensively as well, which could be of huge significance against City.
