Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold has named Manchester United star Marcus Rashford as his toughest opponent.

Despite already facing the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Rashford gave the right-back an afternoon to forget.

“[Rashford was] the toughest in terms of a direct opponent and someone getting on top of me in professional football,” Alexander-Arnold told The Athletic.

“I’d say I underestimated him. It was a massive learning curve for me. It was something that I hated happening. As a Liverpool player, it’s probably the worst game of the season to perform like that. But when things like that happen you have to learn from them.

“It was a massive learning curve for me. It was something that I hated happening. As a Liverpool player, it’s probably the worst game of the season to perform like that. But when things like that happen you have to learn from them. It was a wake-up call. You hate days like that. You don’t want to experience that. You remember how it felt and that makes you try everything you possibly can to ensure you don’t have another one like it.”
