The former Tottenham Hotspur and Everton striker was impressed with the performance of Alexander-Arnold during Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Thursday evening.
The 20-year-old right-back had a superb game on a personal level for the Reds and played a key role in the goal that Roberto Firmino scored on 64 minutes.
Former England international striker Lineker was impressed with the display produced by the England international, and believes that the youngster must play in midfield in the future.
Wonderfully talented. Love watching him play. Will be a star. https://t.co/DE6TM1nE4M— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) January 3, 2019
Alexander-Arnold is one of the best and most promising young players in Europe, and the England international has made the right-back position at Liverpool his own.
Although the Reds lost to City on Thursday evening, the 20-year-old’s performance was admirable, and one can only expect the right-back to improve in the coming years, and perhaps he could even end up playing in midfield.
