Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp impressed with Trent Alexander-Arnold performance against Leeds United as he enjoys new role in midfield.

Alexander-Arnold is enjoying more advanced role as Reds scored six goals against relegation-threatened Leeds United at Elland Road. The English star had over 140 touches and showed his passing tranquility in the opposition half.

The Former English Footballer Gary Linekar was equally impressed with the 24-year-old and said:-

“Said it for years: I’d love to see @TrentAA play in midfield regularly. It’s the position he grew up playing. Play to your strengths.

During club’s academy days, Alexander-Arnold played as a midfelder before transforming into full-back to aid his first-team chances . His lack of experience in the back-line has been evident and back-fired in past.

However, Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for his efforts at Elland Road. The manager said :-

“He won the ball back for the first goal from that position as well, stepping really out there – it was good. Yeah, impressive. I think also the highlight was then the last pass [his assist for Nunez], but he had a few more from that position. Wherever Trent is [on the pitch] he can be decisive with his passes, he was very often for us, that’s how it is, tonight was a good game, you could see that he enjoyed it.”

Diogo Jota ended his goal-drought against Leeds as the Portuguese star re-discovered his goal-scoring touch. But Klopp still want more from former Wolves star :-

“Yeah, [he was] injured too long, same like Lucho [Diaz], and that’s obviously tricky. Diogo was involved in a lot of top, top moments, won the ball back and set up Mo’s first. Still, you can see there is space for improvement and he has some moments where you can see the rhythm maybe [is] not 100 per cent.”
