Liverpool are back on the winning way after an impressive all-run performance against Rangers in the Champions League.
Trent Alexander-Arnold gave the Reds the lead in 7 minutes with a stunning free kick. Mohamed Salah extended Liverpool’s lead in the 53rd minute with a good place penalty after Luis Diaz was fouled in the box.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are now second in their group with six points, three points behind Group leaders Napoli.
However, Rio Ferdinand claims Trent Alexander-Arnold could be the best right-back England has ever seen.
What did Rio Ferdinand about Trent Alexander-Arnold’s performance?
The Manchester United legend said on BT: “Listen, he’s going to go down as one of the best right-backs we’ve ever seen in England. He’s going to break all the records in terms of assists and goals [from a right-back].
“Him and [Chelsea star] Reece James will go close together throughout their careers.
“I’ve had some time with Trent and one thing he doesn’t lack is character and personality. This kid wants to be the best, he asks all the right questions about winning and sustaining performances at the top.
“He’s got the taste of winning at Liverpool, he’s not going to let that slip.”
Commenting on Liverpool’s performance against Rangers, He added: “Back to what we know, what we normally see, from a Liverpool team.
“The energy, the intensity, aggressive, on the front foot, trying to win the ball high and early. All of those things were in play today.
“You can see from the reaction of the manager, of the players, they wanted that, they needed that.
“The manager got everything that he would have wanted from this game: a clean sheet, a couple of goals, and a team that looked like they had confidence back.”
Meanwhile, Adam Lallana has also rated Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Rangers.
The Brighton Star told BBC Radio 5 live: ‘It was extremely comfortable for Liverpool, and I was a bit disappointed with how Rangers approached the game, especially after their good result at the weekend.
“I thought they’d play with a bit more aggression and on the front foot, but it was total domination from Liverpool.
“Rangers were passive in the way they set up. It was a flat back-five, [James] Tavernier never got forward. But it’s a tough place to go to.
“It can be intimidating, but maybe it was a perfect game for Liverpool tonight after a few that didn’t go their way.
“It would have been five or six for Liverpool had it not been for Allan McGregor, I thought he was incredible tonight.”
The Liverpool fans will be hoping their team repeats the same performance against Arsenal on Sunday in the Premier League.
