West Ham’s Ben Johnson showers praise on unbelievable Liverpool
West Ham United defender Ben Johnson has showers praise on Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, saying he’s ‘unbelievable’.
The 22-year-old spoke to West Ham TV about learning from other fullbacks in the game. He said (via LiverpoolEcho):
“I think you have to. I think attacking wise, easy, Trent.
“When I was starting to play full-back he was just coming through in and around the first team (of Liverpool).
“Even from then you could see his technical ability and what he brought to Liverpool. Unbelievable his passing!”
“I got to play against him this season and just to see his football brain and the positions he takes up – not just staying wide, he comes into midfield.
“He’s just unbelievable, his crossing. He’s changed the game attacking wise.”
Johnson came through West Ham’s academy and made his Premier League debut in 2019 in a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.
However, this has been a major season for him, as he has already made 27 appearances in all competitions and scored a goal as well. He can play in both left-back and right-back positions.
Alexander-Arnold has made 35 appearances in all competitions so far, scoring twice and making an impressive 17 assists. He leads the Premier League assists chart with 11.
