“He Is Going To Be A Really Special Player” - Liverpool Star Trent Alexander-Arnold Showers Praise On Manchester United Ace
Trent Alexander-Arnold has yet to taste victory for Liverpool against Manchester United, but the Reds defender will be hoping that changes on Sunday when the fierce rivals lock horns at Old Trafford.
Liverpool are currently 2nd in the table, level on points with Man City but behind on goal difference, although Jurgen Klopp’s men can go top if they avoid defeat against the Red Devils tomorrow. However, the visiting side will be gunning to snatch all three points as they bid to fire out a statement of intent in the riveting race for Premier League glory.
Alexander-Arnold, who missed the 3-1 victory over United earlier this season, made his first league start for Liverpool against their rivals back in January 2017, a 1-1 draw, while he featured in the 2-1 defeat back in March in a game that saw his friend Marcus Rashford bag a brace.
“I'd say [that game] was the hardest point of my career,” Alexander-Arnold revealed to the Daily Mail.
“Afterwards, it was about getting back to basics. You can't think you are not good enough at that level - maybe the level was too good for where you were [at that time]. It is important to put it behind you."
The youngster, 20, was also quick to shower praise on compatriot Rashford, who won the battle between the duo on that particular occasion.
“If he isn't world-class now, he can definitely reach that level.
“Marcus is going to be a really special player. He will say he has a lot to learn and improve on but he is showing signs of wanting to work hard and get better. Under his new manager, he's doing that.”
However, the right-back will be determined to halt his mate tomorrow as Liverpool go in search of their first Old Trafford triumph under Klopp.
