These Liverpool fans were very impressed with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s display against Arsenal on Saturday night.

It took Jurgen Klopp’s side a while to finally break the deadlock against Arsenal, with Diogo Jota having to come off the bench to win the Reds all three points.

Diogo Jota makes a statement vs Arsenal

Jota came on in the 61st minute and only needed three minutes to score his first goal against the Gunners.

Trent Alexander-Arnold got the assist.

Mohamed Salah scored shortly after in the 68th minute to make it 2-0 for Klopp’s side.

In the 82nd minute, Jota finished off a great individual performance and scored once again – this time being assisted by Sadio Mane.

Alexander-Arnold will be pleased with finally getting some sort of goal contribution, with his last coming against Tottenham Hotspur in late January.

These Liverpool supporters were loving the full-back on social media and feel Gareth Southgate should have included him in the England squad.

Here’s what the Liverpool fans were saying about Alexander-Arnold on Twitter:

Alexander-Arnold – finally assisting again

With the full-back getting his first assist since January, hopefully, this will give Alexander-Arnold a much-needed confidence boost.

The Englishman still only has one goal and four assists to his name, but the Liverpool squad as a whole hasn’t been the title-winning side we saw last season.

Alexander-Arnold was Whoscored‘s man of the match with a rating of 8.3 out of 10.

The England international also got one assist and completed 73% of his passes against Arsenal.

Liverpool’s next opponent is Real Madrid in the Champions League, however, this isn’t a fixture that has favoured the Premier League side.

The last time the Reds beat Real Madrid in the Champions League was in 2009, winning 4-0 thanks to goals from Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard and Andrea Dossena.
