Gary Neville has raved about Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, claiming the young star is an “absolute phenomenon”.

Former Manchester United man has compared the Reds’ defender to the club legend Steven Gerrard as well as Premier League greats Kevin De Bruyne and David Beckham.

Liverpool played a 2 – 2 draw with Tottenham on Sunday, with both Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson showing their class.

And Neville, who was impressed by their display, said on his self-titled podcast:

“I don’t think I’ve seen two full-backs play in the Premier League that are as good as these two as a pair,”

“The way in which they combine on the pitch, the way they play the game, they’re an absolute joy.

“Robertson with his consistency does everything well. Defends well, he’s competitive – slightly too much at the end – but he scored a goal and set up a goal.

“Alexander-Arnold is an absolute phenomenon when it comes to the quality of his passing, his delivery. It’s something I’ve never seen before from a full-back.

“It’s like De Bruyne, it’s Beckham, it’s Gerrard, and they’re attacking players. He’s playing at right-back, it’s the highest accolade I could pay him.

“The contribution these two make is unbelievable. It’s bizarre to me. I grew up saying let the full-back have it. You can’t let these two have it.”
