One of the Premier League’s most dangerous full-backs, Trent Alexander-Arnold has enjoyed a meteoric rise since making his debut for Liverpool.
Last season, the 21-year-old bagged an incredible 16 assists in 40 games across all competitions, and played a key role in the Reds’ Champions League triumph.
Despite his tender age, the right-back has become a permanent fixture in the England set-up, and has picked up seven senior caps. After being named in the latest squad by Gareth Southgate, Alexander-Arnold would no doubt have been hoping to play against the Czech Republic on Friday night.
However, the Three Lions boss opted for Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier instead, and the side slipped to a shock 2-1 defeat. The former Spurs man hardly covered himself in glory, losing possession 11 times over the course of the game and earning himself a measly 6.4 match rating as per SofaScore.

After the game, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the decision to leave Alexander-Arnold out.
Many supporters of the Anfield side expressed their shock and dismay, and insisted they couldn’t believe Southgate appeared to favour Trippier.
Is Dejan Lovren underrated?
Some even suggested the England boss should lose his job because of it.
Check out some of the reaction of Liverpool fans below:
Playing Rose and Trippier over Chilwell and Trent should be a sackable offence

How is Trent not starting for England.Tripper gets it 30 yards out on the right and passes it back

Trent and Gomez not starting for this England team is a sin.

Southgate deserves this for not playing Trent, Chillwell and Gomez.

Trent is the current best English player but for some reason Southgate isn’t playing him…

Just cannot understand it tbh. Trent has been arguably the best RB in Europe in the last year, Chilwell has been the best LB behind Robertson in the PL and an out of form Gomez is still 10x the player Keane is.
