He’s better than Declan Rice – Dean Saunders names England’s best midfielder.
Former Liverpool attacker Dean Saunders has named Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold as England’s best midfielder.
Saunders believes Alexander-Arnold, who currently plays as a right-back for Liverpool, is better than Rice, who is set to join Arsenal from West Ham United this summer.
DAILY POST recalls that Alexander-Arnold impressed in his central-midfield role for Liverpool and England towards the end of last season.
However, it looks likely that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will revert him to right-back when the 2023/24 season new Premier League campaign starts next month.
“I think that Trent is the best English midfield player in England. I think he is better than all of them,” Saunders told talkSPORT.
“If you play him in midfield, he can do everything that Declan Rice does, but also he can hit passes that Thiago [Alcantara] hits and sees it.
“If I was Jurgen Klopp, I would buy a right-back and play Trent in midfield.
“I think that Trent [Alexander-Arnold] was brought up as a midfield player. He ended up at full-back, but he knows what to do.”
