One ‘error’ made by Jurgen Klopp that worked for him

Liverpool have been blistering in great form for the past seasons and it is widely believed that manager Jurgen Klopp has been making the right decisions with his recruitment, choice of players for games, and substitutions.

That may not be all true according to a former Liverpool player Emile Heskey who claimed that Jurgen Klopp’s usage of Trent Alexander-Arnold at the right full-back position is not the best for the player.

In his analysis, the former Reds claims that Trent Alexander-Arnold is best as a midfielder and not a right-back, adding that at the right-back position, the player provided 12 assists in 33 EPL games, making him one of the most creative legs in the league. He is reported to have created 79 opportunities for his teammates and 17 of them are classified as big chances.

No wonder, Trent Alexander-Arnold is being compared with De Bruyne in terms of crossing and passing ability. It is only the Man City midfielder that has created more chances than the Reds youngster.

Emile Heskey feels Trent Alexander-Arnold is very influential in the Jurgen Klopp team and he could be handed another role while younger players like Neco Williams, a 19-year-old Academy player could be made to replace him, having proved to be a prospect with his performance when he was subbed in during the Crystal Palace game that ended 4-0 last month.
