Liverpool inflicted their first defeat of the season on Napoli on Tuesday. The night in what was a much-needed 2-0 win at Anfield and a classy Trent Alexander-Arnold moment during the clash has been seen by fans on social media.
The Reds star’s defensive ability has been questioned by many this term after a string of lackluster performances, but there is no doubt that the 24-year-old is gifted with incredible technique.

During the second half of the clash with the Serie A leaders as the FA Cup champions searched for the opening goal, our No. 66 fired an impressive half-volley to Mo Salah with pinpoint accuracy.
The Egyptian king didn’t even have to break stride and Alexander-Arnold made what was a really difficult pass look easy.
There may be doubts about his ability to defend as strongly as other full-backs, but the Academy graduate is one of the best passers in world football.
He has the ability to open up defenses with his right foot and it will be interesting to see if Jurgen Klopp is tempted to give the England international a chance in midfield in the future.
