Jamie Carragher was quick to remind Liverpool fans of Trent Alexander-Arnold’s roots after the teenager’s impressive goal in a 2-1 victory over Hoffenheim on Tuesday night.

The young right-back was named in Jurgen Klopp’s starting line-up for the first leg of their Champions League playoff in Germany with a place in the group-stage draw up for grabs.

Alexander-Arnold equipped himself well in the first-leg clash and provided a constant threat down the right wing with some teasing crosses into the opposition area

But the England Under-21 international’s best moment came just before half-time when Alexander-Arnold showed the confidence to take a free-kick on the edge of the area.

The 18-year-old placed a superb finish into the corner of the net to score a vital away goal ahead of the return leg at Anfield next week.

And Carragher put up the below photo on his Twitter page of the Liverpool goal-scorer as a mascot to remind Liverpool fans of just how young Alexander-Arnold is.

James Milner scored a deflected goal in the 75th minute following Roberto Firmino’s pass to before Mark Uth’s late goal saw Liverpool leave Germany with a 2-1 win.

Liverpool secured a return to the Champions League last term thanks to a fourth-place finish ahead of Arsenal.

The Reds crashed out at the group stage on the last occasion Liverpool competed in the Champions League.
