Reds right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold started for Liverpool against Burnley at Anfield last night.

However, it was a night to forget for the 22-year-old. Alexander-Arnold attempted 18 crosses on the night, but he failed to complete one.

Also, Alexander-Arnold finished the match with a WhoScored player rating of 6.31, which highlights that his overall performance on the night was average.

Some Liverpool fans responded to @Watch_LFC’s tweet regarding Alexander-Arnold’s performance against the Clarets.

The aforementioned fans stated that the right-back should be dropped as a result of his form this season.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

We don’t agree with the aforementioned responses. Alexander-Arnold is not playing so poorly that he should be dropped.

The right-back is averaging a WhoScored player rating of 6.70 across the 2020-21 campaign.

The aforementioned figure highlights that he is not completely out of form.

Alexander-Arnold has a current market value of €110 million. The fact that Alexander-Arnold is valued so highly highlights that he could be performing to a higher standard this season.

However, as he is still a youngster, we are backing him in to get back to his best.
