Liverpool fans were treated to a video showing a wonderful pass from right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold from their win over Aston Villa last weekend, with many waxing lyrical about the 21-year-old’s impressive passing range.
The right-back, who came through the youth academy at Liverpool, is shown switching the play with a superb pass out to the opposite flank for fellow full-back Andrew Robertson to collect. It was an impressive way to mark the youngster’s 100th Liverpool appearance, having made his debut in a 2-1 win over Spurs just three years ago.
His passing ability is superb, with 24 assists to his name in his Reds career.
But, more specifically, some of the best reactions from Liverpool fans to Alexander-Arnold’s pass can be seen in the tweets below.
Him and kdb are the best 2 passers in the premier league, maybe even Europe.

I’ve never seen a defender with a range of passing like his.

Trent casually whips out 5 of these a game. Generational talent.

Amazing technique for a right-back… Trent is the best thing from the club’s academy, for a long time. Only Sterling and Trent has showed frightening potential at such young age since Gerrard.

One fan even described the right-back as a young Steven Gerrard, with similarities possibly being drawn between their knack for attempting long-range passes.
Young Stevie G

He is ridiculous. A special, special talent.

Liverpool fans clearly enjoyed the pass from their right-back and will be hoping that he continues his incredible start to his Liverpool career for some time.
What do we think?
Alexander-Arnold has established himself as one of the best young talents in the world and with his passing ability it’s hard to not see him succeeding in a central-midfield position in the not too distant future.
The youngster is rivalling Kevin De Bruyne for the number of key passes in the Premier League this season, which is certainly not bad company for the right-back to be alongside. At only 21, it is difficult to see Alexander-Arnold not becoming one of the best players in the world if he continues to develop.
