Steve McManaman heaps praise on Trent Alexander-Arnold after Liverpool’s 3-1 win at Spurs on Thursday night


Former Liverpool captain Steve McManaman has heaped praise on Trent Alexander-Arnold for an “excellent” display in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Thursday night.

The Red’s ended their poor run of form in the Premier League following a comfortable 3-1 triumph over rivals Tottenham Hotspur.


Roberto Firmino broke the deadlock in the first half for the visitors after a defensive mistake from Spurs.

Jurgen Klopp’s side adopted a more attacking approach after taking the lead and it paid off as the Reds doubled their advantage in the 47th minutes.

Pierre Emile Hojbjerg scored his first goal for Tottenham Hotspur a minute later to give the Lilywhites hope but that hope was shattered after another defensive error this time from Joe Rodon led to the Reds third goal.


Trent Alexander-Arnold had an eventful game against Tottenham, having amassed more touches than anyone else on the pitch. He was back to his best in terms of offensive service and scored a goal as well before registering the assist for the third.

His impressive performance led to the former captain heaping praise on the 22 year-old right back.


Speaking after the match Steve McManaman said:

I’ve gone for Trent Alexander-Arnold [for man of the match], Steve McManaman told BT Sport.

He’s got a goal and an assist. It was a brilliant strike and a lovely assist for Mane. He has been excellent. His movement and energy levels have been really good.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are back into the top four above West Ham and four points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
