Player profile

Alexander-Arnold is originally a central midfielder who has been used by Klopp as a right-back to such a good effect in pre-season to the 2016/17 campaign that he was on the bench as Liverpool conquered at Arsenal on the first day of the season. He made his first-team debut against Tottenham in the fourth round of the League Cup at Anfield on 25 October 2016. The local lad has been at the academy since he was six years old and has been both captain of the u-16 and the u-18 team. 

In Gerrard's most recent autobiography, he details his admiration for Alexander-Arnold, whom Gerrard saw while working on his UEFA coaching badges at the Academy. Then 16, this is how Gerrard described the potential of Alexander-Arnold: “Trent Arnold has a terrific chance of making it as a top professional. He’s quite leggy but he’s got a lovely frame and seems to have all the attributes you need. He has the right attitude and comes from West Derby, home to Melwood. So Trent is another Scouser and apparently, just as I tried to be John Barnes and Steve McMahon, he grew up pretending to be me while playing in the Merseyside parks. He can play as a number 6, a holding midfielder, but he’s versatile and I’ve seen him fill various positions. I know England are all over him.”
