Paul Merson has raved about Trent Alexander-Arnold, claiming Liverpool defender is “phenomenal”.

Pundit was impressed by the 23-year-old’s display against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-final win on Thursday.

Speaking about Alexander-Arnold, Merson shared his full praise, comparing him to Manchester United legend David Beckham.

“He (Alexander-Arnold) is phenomenal,” he said, as quoted by The Daily Mail.

“People say, ‘he can’t defend’. Why do you have to defend when you go forward like he does? To put up the figures and the assists that he gets is just mind-blowing, absolutely mind-blowing.

“Some of the balls that he plays, the weight of pass – everything he picks out he composes himself, never panics. That ball was David Beckham. If you’d have just had a look at his feet there and nothing else, you’d of thought it was David Beckham.”
