Everyone is saying the same thing about Trent Alexander-Arnold’s performance against Man City

The Liverpool youngster did something that many Premier League right backs have failed to do this season

Trent Alexander-Arnold has a heavy pocket right now.

Leroy Sane wasn’t given an inch tonight as Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-0 in their Champions League quarter-final first leg at Anfield.

The City winger, who has destroyed almost every other right back this season, was marshalled superbly by the Reds’ 19-year-old right-back.

Alexander-Arnold, or TAA as he’s referred to by Liverpool fans, was highlighted as a possible weakness in Jurgen Klopp’s side for City to exploit before kick-off.

Speaking on BT Sport before the match, Steven Gerrard labelled it as the “the biggest game of his career.”

The Liverpool legend had his doubts about the youngster, following some individual mistakes against the likes of Marcus Rashford and Wilfried Zaha, but it’s safe to say he passed the Sane test with flying colours.

The German winger has traumatised Kieran Trippier, Hector Bellerin and Seamus Coleman in the Premier League this season but TAA kept him on a leash, much to enjoyment of the home crowd.

Alexandre-Arnold’s performance shouldn’t be overshadowed by impressive showings from Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mohamed Salah.

The right-back also became the youngest Englishman to ever start a Champions League quarter-final.
