Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Garth Crooks believes the Liverpool fan base does not give Trent Alexander-Arnold enough love.

The full-back has been exceptional for the Reds in recent times, and his performances have certainly caught the eye of Crooks.

Alexander-Arnold put the ball on a plate for Virgil van Dijk twice on the weekend against Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield, and the Dutchman did not miss out by converting both chances, which secured Liverpool a 2-1 victory. Both assists have got Crooks talking.

Crooks wrote on BBC Sport: “I don’t think I have seen a young lad with the ability to place a dead ball precisely where he wants it to go – and with such quality – since Glenn Hoddle.

“Alexander-Arnold’s crosses and balls into the danger areas are having a devastating effect on the opposition. His two assists for Virgil van Dijk were just out of this world. The problem with free-kicks, and corners of course, is a defence can do very little about how they are taken.

“This local lad is proving to be a bit special. I just wish Liverpool fans would chant his name more. Even with a name like Trent Alexander-Arnold, it can’t be that difficult.”
