Liverpool: Fans jokingly suggest that Trent Alexander-Arnold becomes a reserve goalkeeper

Liverpool fans have suggested that right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold should become one of Jurgen Klopp’s reserve ‘keepers.

The England international was the subject of controversy after his side’s 3-1 victory against Manchester City on Sunday.

Who is the better full-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold or Andrew Robertson?

The 21-year-old was said to have handled Bernardo Silva’s flick in the sixth minute of the game, but referee Michael Oliver did not agree. As a result, the Reds went on the counter-attack and Fabinho scored a 25-yard strike that deceived Claudio Bravo at his near post to give the hosts an early lead.

Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane ensured that Liverpool went eight points clear at the top of the Premier League and nine clear of City.

It isn’t the first time that appeals of handling the ball have come Alexander-Arnold’s way. Protests were waved away during the Champions League semi-final against Roma where the Englishman appeared to have handled, and the same happened at St James’ Park last season during their 3-2 win. All three were not given and went Liverpool’s way.

Supporters joked about the prospect of the youngster becoming backup to Alisson Becker and made their feelings clear on social media.

Here you will find some of the best responses from Liverpool fans, with one supporter giving a shout-out to former Red Stephane Henchoz after his infamous handball in the 2001 FA Cup final:
