Trent Alexander-Arnold To Play In Midfield For Liverpool Next Season

Liverpool ace Trent Alexander-Arnold could end up playing further up the pitch next season, as he insisted he wants to keep improving his attacking ability.

The 21-year-old showcased his attacking prowess against Leicester City on Boxing day last season, scoring and providing two assists in the 4-0 win. 

Many fans and pundits believe he will end up playing in midfield.  

But for now, the Liverpool right-back appears happy to stay at the back, as he discussed his development with Sky Sports.

Alexander-Arnold hinted that he would be happy to change positions in the future, as he doesn’t want to stay the same forever. 

The youngster told Sky Sports: “Towards the second half of last season, or even the final quarter after everything that happened, I found it a little bit tougher to find the space and have that freedom.

“I found myself getting man-marked a few more times in games, which I wasn't used to.

“When you pose a threat to the opposition, they look at it and try and stop it from happening. 

“In my mind, if that's happened to me it means that I'm doing something right.

“I can only try and keep doing that. Every season you've got to adapt and change your ways because everyone is improving.

“You can't stay the same, you've got to keep improving.
