Unleashing the Best in the World: Presenter Asserts Liverpool’s New Role with a Player Superior to Zinchenko

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has been given a more central role with the Reds, where he will have more freedom to roam.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has recently experimented with several tactical alterations as his team approaches the end of the season.

The German coach has led his team to eleven unbeaten Premier League matches, yet their hopes to break into the top four have fallen just short.

Nonetheless, the last few weeks have been beneficial in terms of determining what might work for next season, with no learning curve being more significant than Trent Alexander-Arnold’s positive performances in a more advanced role following a tactical switch that allowed the England international to drive further forward.

What is the most recent Trent Alexander-Arnold news, and why is he so good inverted?

In an interview with Football FanCast, Red TV analyst Paul Machin stated that Alexander-Arnold is the ‘best in the world’ in his role as an inverted full-back and that this tactical style may be the way forward for Liverpool.

“Right now, we still need him to do that inverted full-back job because there’s no point in getting another right-back or going back to 4-3-3,” Machin told FFC. We’re not sure if that system still works. If we stick with this approach, I believe Trent is the finest in the world at playing that role. He’s better than Zinchenko and John Stones combined.”

It has to be mentioned that his recent figures support the assumption that he should stay in his new position indefinitely, as the 24-year-old has one goal and seven assists in his 10 appearances since moving into central areas more frequently, according to Transfermarkt.

WhoScored also notes a significant improvement in the consistency of his performances, as £180k-a-week earning Alexander-Arnold hasn’t dropped a performance that has graded below 6.91/10 since being deployed in a slightly different role.

Unsurprisingly, he has received a lot of praise recently, including from Brentford manager Thomas Frank, who said, according to The Mirror, “He’s a very, very good footballer and I understand why Jurgen constantly talks positively about him and uses him in the best way.” His passing range and skill are likely to rank among the greatest in the world. I don’t recall the statistics, but he has to be one of the greatest assist makers in Premier League history. In the future, he could play as a midfielder. I know he’s being deployed there now when in possession, and the game has evolved to the point where there are possession positions and non-possession positions. But in midfield, he brings something very valuable to Liverpool.”

This season, Liverpool’s midfield has lacked creativity, something Alexander-Arnold could assist to fill in the future. This season, FBRef has demonstrated his ability as a skilled chance generator, completing 142 shot-creating actions.

According to BBC Sport, England manager Gareth Southgate has recalled Alexander-Arnold for his team’s Euro 2024 qualifiers in June and has not ruled out using the Liverpool-born ace as a midfielder, saying: “He’s a super footballer.” He’s taking on a little new role, which I believe has energized him in recent months. He has always played in forward areas with the ball, but he is now more center. It’s intriguing for us, and it’s an idea I’ve discussed with him in recent weeks. We are excited to collaborate with Trent.”

Alexander-Arnold appears to have found his best form and will definitely be a huge asset for Liverpool coming into next season as they strive to get back to their best under Klopp, who will be delighted about what the future holds for his team after some successful tactical tweaks.
