Peter Crouch and Rio Ferdinand hailed Liverpool star Trent-Alexander-Arnold who put on a “masterclass” in the first half of their Champions League exit to Atletico Madrid.
A dramatic game at Anfield ended 3-2 to Atletico on the night after extra time, which put the Spanish side through 4-2 on aggregate.
Georginio Wijnaldum gave Liverpool the lead just before half time with a header, but it was Alexander-Arnold who stood out for Crouch and Ferdinand in the first half.
“Oh it’s been a masterclass honestly, because it’s countless passes cross-field, some of the crosses. He’s just been absolutely class,” the pundit said.
“We’ve been waxing lyrical about him in the studio.”
Ferdinand added: “He’s put on a clinic, hasn’t he?
“He’s playing left-back there, he’s put on onto Salah’s toe there, beautiful take.
“Trent, for someone so young he gets in the right positions. This ball here is ridiculous, this is begging, Crouchy, you’d have loved that one.”
