Liverpool: Fans stick by Trent Alexander-Arnold over ‘handball’ against Manchester City

Liverpool fans have been sticking by Trent Alexander-Arnold after a handball decision during his side’s 3-1 win against Manchester City was waved away.

Referee Michael Oliver did not believe that the visitors should have had a penalty in the fifth minute of the game. A City attack which saw the ball ricochet off Bernardo Silva’s arm struck the England international’s hip and forearm inside the area.

As a result, Jurgen Klopp’s side went down the other end of the pitch and Fabinho hit a 25-yard strike which thrashed past Claudio Bravo in between the City sticks. A VAR check was carried out but the goal stood.

Alexander-Arnold has come under criticism from Citizens’ fans and pundits after they believed that Pep Guardiola’s team should have been given a spot-kick, the 21-year-old admitted himself that he was worried when the ball struck him.

Supporters leapt to the defence of the Champions League winner and made their feelings clear on social media.

Here you will find some of the best responses from Liverpool fans:
