Supporters have been mocking Trent Alexander-Arnold on social media following his mistake in Liverpool’s huge clash with Manchester City.
The Reds defender switched off at the far post, allowing Gabriel Jesus to put the ball beyond Alisson in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City.
City took the lead early on through Kevin de Bruyne, but Liverpool equalised not too long later, with Alexander-Arnold teeing up Diogo Jota.
However, it was the right-back’s defensive abilities, which have often been criticised, that let him down on the 36 minute.
Joao Cancelo’s cross to the far post perhaps should have been dealt with but Alexander-Arnold’s lapse moment allowed Jesus time and space to convert and restore the champions’ advantage in Manchester.
The Liverpool defender has often been compared to Reece James, Chelsea’s English right-back, with both offering so much to their respective teams.
James has been superb this season for the Blues. The England international has struggled with injuries, but when he has been fit, he’s been one of Thomas Tuchel’s top performers.
There’s an argument, especially from Chelsea fans, that James is the superior right-back to Trent. So, it comes as no shock whatsoever, that Blues supporters took to social media after Alexander-Arnold’s mistake against Manchester City.
