Trent Alexander-Arnold

He's 18.

He must have been nervous as hell before that. What a fixture to get your first PL start in.

And though he got caught out a few times, he did a pretty solid job. He's a rough diamond, but I think he's got a future at the club. If he can continue to get some game time, learn the position a bit more then I think he can be solid back up for Clyne.

All things considered I thought he did well. In fact, I think he'll make it and become a regular in the fullness of time.

He got caught out a few times but mainly at the beginning of the game. Dealt with anything after that and second half was very solid. He looks an outstanding prospect.

Is his prefered position RB, I thought I read somewhere that he was a midfielder who could play right back.

He looked shakey early on but improved alot as the game went on, we need cover for Clyne (hopefully only the odd game) but it would be get him some experience.

He had a rough intro, but was assisted very well on a number of occasions by Lovren and/or Gini..........could only point to a couple of occasions as the game went on, and you could argue that he was on the pitch at the end, whereas the lad who was instructed to run him off the park was sat on the bench after an hour.
OK overall.

Tough day for the young lad. He was clearly being targeted. Thought he improve in the second half though.

That must have been a massive high-5 to his confidence - to see a 56m (cost, not value!) attacker being subbed off.

Fair fucks to Trent. And fair fucks to Klopp as well for putting him in. I would have thought that the option of putting Milner right back and Moreno left back would have been considered as well.

By the way, is he the lad who Gerrard tipped to become a regular for us?

Baptism of fire or what for a first PL start and he struggled a bit at the start but there was also a change in formation where he wasn't going to be afforded the same cover as we usually have there. Overall he did bloody well for us.

Not sure where this leaves Moreno when the moving of Milner to RB and starting him at LB would have been the easier more conventional decision

I thought TAA did ok he grew into the game

He still gets a little caught positional wise but hes young he can hopefully learn that

Martial gave him a bit of a roasting in the first half, especially the first 30 mins but he improved as the game went on. I did think all our defenders looked a bit panicked for the first 20 mins anyways which wouldn't have helped Arnold. Some game to come into for the young lad, immense pressure.

He did better against Utd than he did against Plymouth, considering the expectations from both games. I can see him starting against Plymouth again and hopefully put in some good crosses for Sturridge to finish.

I thought he had a good game, all things considered.

He'll never be as good as Tom Davies though, who's by far and away the best young talent this country has ever produced.

He did, but will struggle for games when they have Geuye, besic, barry, schneiderlin and mcarthy for 2 centre mid spots.

barry's legs are going tho and a blue nose I know seems to think mcarthy will go too.

anyway - yeah like others have sad, well done TAA - couple of nervy moments which are to be expected, but some good moments too. very promising and hopefully he can continue forward like this and provide good cover and competition for clyne

Another good performance from Trent. Couple of nice crosses and an amazing recovery tackle to prevent an easy goal. Made a great recovery against United too to make up for getting dispossessed by Martial. Would be tempted to start him again against Swansea, even if Clyne is fit. Save Clyne for Southampton and Chelsea.

Refuse to get too excited though. Weve had a long list of young FBs that looked good in early games, that for one reason or another never ended up making it.

Off the top of my head:

Wisdom (how is he doing on loan?)
Kelly
Otsemobor (or is it Peltier Im thinking of?)
Darby
Robinson
Warnock
Insua

Aye

There's having a bad run with injuries and then there's Otsemobor. By the age of 20 he'd had two broken legs and someone had bust a cap in his ass

The first I really saw of him was on the Pre season trip in Oz at the Brisbane match. He was bloody terrible & I hoped he'd be sold quick smart. It was a knee jerk reaction looking back but I've not seen anything to change that early opinion as yet nor am I likely to.

He can't be far away from a few more outings in the team with Clyne struggling.

I think T Alex-Arnie is the long term solution for right back, he potentially offers more than Clyne as an attacker.

Hopefully we get CL footy next season and T-AA will get some more opportunities to stake his claim. For now Clyne has the experience and consistency.

Clyne is far better than Trent as it stands.

Clyne could do better in the final 3rd but it'd be madness to take him out the side for a kid with a bright future but little to no experience.

Clyne is wank going forward Trent Alexander Arnold Schwarzenneger can at least take a player on. Clyne better defensively at the moment but offers fuck all going forward apart from cutting in himself and playing it sideways like a slow crab.

Yeah I didn't say Clyne should be dropped for TAA ...but I'd be looking to drip feed him the odd game here and there. Clyne plays more games than anyone else and TAA is an able deputy. If we're not going to give him any more than League Cup games against dross it might be worth him going on loan for 3 months in August imo.
