Someone should check Trent Alexander-Arnold’s football boots for some sort of tracking device, because his passing ability can’t be human!
It’s not new information that Alexander-Arnold can choose a pass, the Liverpool full-back’s ability to find one of the team’s attacking players so often is one of the most powerful weapons soccer right now.
However, a few minutes later he played an even better ball, turning away from his marker and almost instantly playing a ball deep above the opposing defense to find Mohamed Salah, unfortunately the striker was unable to finish .
Yeah… Trent Alexander-Arnold’s death is the best in the world.
It’s a joke for Salah

Trent was exceptional. That bit of skill right there and passing for Salah deserved better.

Salah should be substituted for costing Trent that fine assist.

It’s a bit harsh that people are piling on Salah for missing the chance, he still had a bit to do but the pass was so good that it still made people get on their backs of the Egyptian.
His pass earlier in the half, which Diaz headed in the way of Sadio Mane to make it 2-0, after Ibrahima Konate headed the opposing team in front, brought Jamie Carragher to praise the man he used to play, but did it very differently.
“Trent Alexander-Arnold, the man I call the pass master,” the pundit said on CBS.
“And that’s why. Right on the money to Diaz.”
Fellow pundit Micah Richards agreed, replying, “It’s a sensational ball. One touch, two touches and then there.”

After entering half-time with a two-goal, the Premier League title chasers were then pushed back just four minutes into the second half.
Konate, who had been brilliant until then, missed a cross and allowed young Darwin Nunez to drive home and halve the visitors’ advantage.
