– Trent Alexander-Arnold has come under immense criticisms from fans on social media
– The Liverpool defender produced one of his worst performances during the loss to Southampton
– The Reds have only managed to earn two points in their last three Premier League matches
Trent Alexander-Arnold gave the ball away 38 times during Liverpool’s defeat to Southampton at St, Mary’s and fans are not happy with the youngster’s performance.
The Reds suffered their second defeat of the season and failed to extend their lead over Man United on the Premier League table by three points.
Former Liverpool star Danny Ings scored in the second minute which proved to be the match-winner for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men.
Alexander-Arnold defended badly from James Ward-Prowse’s free-kick that led to the goal and the young England defender did the recover from the error in the entire match.
And the Premier League Young Player of the Year was disastrous in the entire match which led to fans on social media unhappy.
He was substituted in the 77th minute after losing possession and beaten by Southampton players on several occasions.
One fan said:
“I’m not even mad at this because he’s been woeful.”
Another fan replied
“My God I didn’t realise it was THIS bad.”
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher also spoke on the 22-year-old’s performance especially in the first 45 minutes.
“Trent finds himself in a two-v-one even though Liverpool have the numerical advantage. It’s something they [Southampton] have worked on. The way [he lost his man] sums up Trent’s half.”
United legend Paul Ince added:
“Alexander-Arnold makes a big mistake, he should be doing better.”
Jurgen Klopp’s men have taken just two points out of their last three Premier League fixtures, recording draws against West Brom and Newcastle recently.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl was on Monday, December 4, overwhelmed with emotion after his side dealt Liverpool a huge blow with a narrow 1-0 win at Saint Marys’.
Moments after the final whistle Ralph Hasenhuttl went on his knees in tears at winning against someone he considers a role model in Jurgen Klopp.
A clever chip from Danny Ings as early as the second minute of the game proved to be the decisive moment as some heroic Southampton defending coupled with lackluster performances from the Reds at times ensured all three points went to the hosts.
