Carragher names his ‘biggest problem’ with TAA for Liverpool

Jamie Carragher thinks Trent Alexander-Arnold could stop more goals for Liverpool if he sprinted back rather than jogged.

The England international has been a revelation at right-back for the Reds since bursting onto the scene in 2016.

Alexander-Arnold played on and off for two seasons until he really cemented his place in Jurgen Klopp’s side last season, playing 29 matches in the Premier League.

He won the Champions League last term, while also breaking the Premier League record for most assists by a defender in a domestic campaign with 12.

Liverpool are eight points clear at the top of the Premier League this season and they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 on Saturday to maintain their lead.

And despite playing his part in both Liverpool’s goals, Carragher thinks he should have done better to stop Wilfried Zaha for Palace’s goal.

“That’s my biggest problem with him. Zaha is powerful and it’s tough to stop him. He doesn’t panic, sprint back,” Carragher told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“I’ve seen it from him a lot. I don’t know if Jurgen Klopp has noticed or spoken to him about it. There was a goal at Arsenal last season. It’s like he jogs back, just get back! I think that goal is stopped if he makes that sprint.”
