Carragher’s belief Alexander-Arnold ‘may not be right for Liverpool’ splits fans

Liverpool supporters are divided over Jamie Carragher's belief Trent Alexander-Arnold might not be right for the club at this moment in time.

The Anfield hero turned pundit expressed his belief that the 24-year-old is not the best choice at right-back for their current plight after their Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid.

Although Carragher did say Alexander-Arnold is perfect for the team when they are dominating games and possession, he worries about the right-back in more defensive fixtures.

Many were quick to pile into Carragher on social media, one fan said: "This narrative is extremely lazy. Trent's been poor this season, but which Liverpool player apart from Alisson hasn't?"

A second said: "Made mistakes tonight, having a poor season, but to forget the last 5 years because he's struggling in an absolutely disastrous team is mad."

However, others agreed with Carragher, one typed: "Let’s be honest.. you’re right.. Trent has stood still.. he hasn’t improved this year.. he will need to next year for sure."

A second posted: "Trent has been so far off it this season. He’s not the only one but he’s by far the most noticeable one."

Not one to back down, Carragher has been back on social media to defend his stance – reiterating why he thinks the 24-year-old is no longer flourishing.

He tweeted: "You mention what Trent has won, I also do that in the clip & say how proud I am of him & that he has won a lot more than me! But does that mean we can never analyse or critique anyone from this team?!!"

He added: "You want Trent on the ball in the inside & outside right positions whether he is a full back or midfielder!"

As part of his initial speech, Carragher suggested Liverpool buy a right-back to offer competition to Alexander-Arnold, who has been named in the PFA Team of the Year three times.

With Liverpool missing out on Carabao Cup glory and out of the FA Cup and Champions League, they are now desperate for a top-four finish and sit six points behind Tottenham, with a game in hand.
