The young Liverpool defender made headlines this evening.

Liverpool re-established their five-point cushion at the top of the Premier League table this afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp’s side went to Chelsea and left with a 2-1 win to re-open the gap between the Reds and Manchester City, who won 8-0 on Saturday.

Trent Alexander-Arnold opened the scoring for Liverpool on 14 minutes, rifling the ball home from 20 yards after it was laid off to the young right-back by Mo Salah.

The 20-year-old is one of the best young players in his position in the world, and Gary Lineker, going by his mid-match tweet, certainly appears to be a massive fan of Alexander-Arnold.

At only 20, Alexander-Arnold, a product of Liverpool’s academy, really is a frightening talent and there’s really no telling how good he could be in the future.

Roberto Firmino added a second as Klopp’s side gave themselves daylight heading into the break, but N’Golo Kante halved the deficit for the hosts with 20 minutes left.

However, Alexander-Arnold and his defensive team-mates held firm despite plenty of pressure from the Blues.
