“He’s The Worst…” Pundit slams Liverpool star as he draws comparisons to Reece James And Kyle Walker

Trent Alexander-Arnold of Liverpool has come under fire from TalkSPORT pundit Darren Bent for his performance against Manchester United on Monday night.

The 23-year-old has had a challenging start to the season, and Bent was blunt in his criticism, saying he didn’t understand why people thought he was better than either Kyle Walker of Manchester City or Reece James of Chelsea:

“My goodness. Wow. People will keep banging that drum that he’s better than Reece James and Kyle Walker. Absolutely not. Out of those three, he’s the worst, and unfortunately last night it’s almost like they picked on him.”

There is no denying that James and Walker are now in greater shape than Alexander-Arnold, but Bent’s comments do go too far at times. Just by looking at the stats, you can tell what a fantastic player the Liverpool defender is.

Since becoming a professional, the right-back has averaged one goal or assist every three games. There truly is no comparison if you compare that to James (whose average is per five matches) and Walker (every 8.7 games).

Of course, some could counter that a fullback’s primary responsibility is to defend, but Alexander-Arnold has demonstrated with his past performances that any weaknesses in that department are more than made up for by his attacking output.
