Trent Alexander-Arnold has been likened to Kevin de Bruyne playing at right-back as Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville lauded the Liverpool defender.

The England international grabbed another two assists on Monday night as Liverpool came from 2-1 down to beat West Ham 3-2 and maintain their unbeaten record in the Premier League.

Alexander-Arnold has now contributed 12 Premier League assists this season and 24 since the beginning of last term.

OPINION: Liverpool needed the oomph of the Ox…

And Carragher and Neville joined together to pile praise on the 21-year-old.

“What makes him special is it is like having De Bruyne at right back, like a midfielder at right back,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“People talk about his defending, but what he is doing – like Beckham at wing-back under Hoddle because of his quality – Alexander-Arnold is like a wing-back with the positions he plays.”

Neville added: “What staggers me is they don’t have two big strikers to hit with loads of headers, but Mane and Salah score headers because the quality is that good.

“If the quality is that good and the speed of the run, you are going to get chances, the quality is out of this world.”
