THE REDS DEFENSE WAS NOT UP TO THE MARK AGAINST AJAX
There was a time when the Reds’ defense was hard to break down. However, recently it is very easy. Many teams are easily exposing their defense. In the end, Allison has to keep the game alive by pulling off important saves. Hence, it has not been an easy season for the backline of Liverpool. Trent Alexander Arnold is also struggling in the backline.
It happened again as the Reds hosted Ajax yesterday night. The Dutch giants broke down Liverpool’s press. They also managed to create space on the right. The forwards also managed to get in behind Trent-Alexander Arnold. Hence, then came the inevitable goal against the run of play. However, Liverpool managed to win the game after a goal from Joel Matip.
Despite his struggles at the back, Trent managed to pull off some beautiful long passes to open up the game. Hence, this is what makes him an important player for Liverpool. No matter, what happens in the future, Trent is already a legend for the Reds. He has lifted every major trophy at the club level.
