Jamie Carragher has named the one thing that frustrates him about Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold’s game.
The England international has been a revelation for the Reds since bursting onto the scene in 2016.
Alexander-Arnold played on and off for two seasons until he cemented his place in Jurgen Klopp’s side last term, playing 29 times in the Premier League.
He won the Champions League last season, while also breaking the Premier League record for most assists by a defender in a domestic campaign with an impressive 12.
Liverpool are currently eight points clear at the top of the Premier League after they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 on Saturday to maintain their advantage.
And despite playing his part in both of Liverpool’s goals, Carragher thinks he should have done better to stop Wilfried Zaha for Palace’s strike.
“That’s my biggest problem with him. Zaha is powerful and it’s tough to stop him. He doesn’t panic, sprint back,” Carragher told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.
“I’ve seen it from him a lot. I don’t know if Jurgen Klopp has noticed or spoken to him about it. There was a goal at Arsenal last season. It’s like he jogs back, just get back! I think that goal is stopped if he makes that sprint.”
