Back again, another case of Martin Tyler showing his bias towards Liverpool. This time around though Gary Neville has jumped in (though that’s to be more expected) and commented some rather naive thoughts on Trent Alexander-Arnold.
It seems as though the two Manchester United fans (Tyler being self-acclaimed by me) have once again raised questions as to whether they should really be in commentary after their latest comments.
During the England vs Switzerland game at the King Power Stadium, the duo referred to Liverpools talented young right-back as one that “doesn’t know how to attack and loves to defend”.

They say ignorance is bliss, and this must be the case in this situation, as the pair must be unaware that Trents preferred position is actually as a central midfielder, but he has been converted to a right-back at Liverpool.
Not only that, but Trent has become infamous for his ability to pick out passes and for his excellent crossing, which helped Liverpool on numerous occasions last season, as he created a total of 25 chances in the Premier League alone last season.
We aren’t particularly shocked that the Manc-duo are unaware of Trent’s real capabilities, but you’d think as pundits they’d probably understand how Trent actually plays, or perhaps they just wish Valencia and Darmian could be half the player Trent is at 19.
