Graeme Souness showers praises on Liverpool star who ‘makes the right choice nine times out of 10’
Liverpool FC legend Graeme Souness has showered praise on the reds right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold following an impressive display In a 1-0 win against the Hammers.
West Ham United made it a little difficult for the Anfield outfit to salvage all 3 points with the Reds pushing from all angles, thereby adding more pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Alexander-Arnold was once again once again at his best, assisting the only goal of the game as Sadio Mane netted the winner for the Reds at Anfield.
With his assist against West Ham on Saturday, the Liverpool right-back broke his own personal tally for most assists in the season across competitions.
He now has 16 assists across all competitions, 11 of which have come in the Premier League, and Souness has nothing but praises and admiration for the youngster.
The reds Legend, Souness strongly believes Alexander-Arnold is the key reason why his former club are leading the scoring charts.
“The reason Liverpool are top goal scorers is they’ve got him [Alexander-Arnold] in the team,” Souness said on Sky Sports.
“Great delivery, he passes the ball like very few people can, even at this high level. In golf terms he’s got every single club. He can do what ever he wants with a football.
In the final third, nine times out of 10 he’s making the right choice.”
The 68-year-old also had time for Alexander-Arnold’s full-back partner Andy Robertson.
The former Liverpool player and manager believes the full-back duo of the Reds make things easier for the strikers.
“Robertson has high energy, hasn’t got the same delivery as Trent, but they’re basically midfield players. These lads are the two best ones around.
If you’re a striker, you know if he’s [Alexander-Arnold] on the ball, any sort of movement and he’s going to find you,”
