A lot of Liverpool fans have flocked to Twitter to slate Reds right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold over his performance in the Merseyside club’s latest Premier League clash with Southampton.
The 22-year-old played a notable role in Danny Ings’ opening goal of the game, which came in just the second minute. Per The Liverpool Echo, the £99m-rated man produced some ‘pathetic defending’ from the set-piece which allowed the former Reds striker to get onto the end of the ball from James Ward-Prowse and score.
Later on in the contest, the right-back was on the receiving end of a telling off from Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, with Alexander-Arnold said to have been ‘having a bit of a nightmare’ versus The Saints.
So, what have these Liverpool fans had to say about Alexander-Arnold?
Many Liverpool fans took to Twitter to criticise the England international for the role he played in the game’s opening goal, while others shared that they believe his role in the goal was just the latest error in what has been an overall poor season from the Reds academy product.
“Some finish that you know. However, it’s never a free-kick and TAA defensive wise is absolutely shocking there.”
“Weak from TAA. His first poor run.”
“Alexander-Arnold is such a terrible defender. Complete liability this year with the shape of this back line.”
“Alexander-Arnold needlessly gave the ball away just before Thiago committed that foul. There’s no hiding his poor form of late #SOULIV”
“Awful that from Alexander-Arnold, why is he trying to control that with his chest instead of just clearing it?”
“He’s been pretty poor all season long”
“Been horrendous lately”
“Trent Alexander-Arnold has been sleepwalking through the entire season and it’s infuriating”
Is Alexander-Arnold having a bad season?
