– Trent Alexander-Arnold has set an unwanted record in the Premier League during Liverpool’s defeat to Burnley
– The 22-year-old failed to reach a teammate in 12 attempts during the clash at Anfield against the Clarets
– Liverpool fans have also hit out at the England defender for his shaky performances in the past few weeks
Trent Alexander-Arnold’s poor performances in recent matches have set an unwanted record in the Premier League after the English champions were shocked by Burnley at Anfield, Sport Bible.
The England defender struggled in most parts of the game as the Reds surrendered to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Clarets.
Arnold made 18 crosses from open play with a zero per cent success rate and it did not locate any of his teammates.
According to Squawka, the 22-year-old has now become the only player in the English topflight division in the last five seasons to fail to reach a teammate in 12 attempts in a match.
The right-back gave the ball away 38 times against Southampton and lost possession 39 times which was a Premier League record at the time.
Liverpool fans were critical of Arnold’s performance against Sean Dyche’s side that saw them lose their first home game in three years.
One fan said:
“If ever one moment summed up the form of a player, it was Trent’s pass into touch in stoppage time, under no pressure at all.
“This is the worst he has ever played by a considerable distance – confidence and fitness levels look completely shot.”
A second said:
“Think there’s too much pressure on Trent to be the only creative outlet atm and it’s showing.”
A third added:
“Genuinely think that Trent performance is one of the worst I’ve ever seen in a Liverpool shirt. Would have rather had Johnny Vegas on the pitch.”
A fourth said:
“Mate, I’ve been his biggest defender but Trent Alexander-Arnold looks horrific and has for a while. He needs a break. Geezers been at it from such a young age. Give him a rest, he’s in woeful form. Never seen so many poor crosses and miss-placed passes.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was involved in a heated bust-up with his Burnley counterpart Sean Dyche at half time as the Clarets secured a shock 1-0 win at Anfiield.
The first half of the encounter was largely uneventful but things heated up when Liverpool’s make-shift center-back Fabinho challenged for an aerial ball with Burnley’s Ashley Barnes.
