Steven Gerrard has named Trent Alexander-Arnold as Liverpool FC’s star man in their 5-1 aggregate win against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

German head coach Jurgen Klopp showed tremendous faith in the 19-year-old full-back after Alexander-Arnold retained his starting spot in the Liverpool FC team despite his errors against Crystal Palace and Manchester United.

The Premier League leaders looked to target Alexander-Arnold in the first leg as Pep Guardiola pitted PFA player of the year contender Leroy Sane against Liverpool FC’s teenage defender.

However, Alexander-Arnold managed to keep the Germany international quiet before the England Under-21 maintained his composure despite conceding in the second minute and picking up an early yellow card.

Liverpool FC’s number 66 made three successful tackles in the second leg to help the visitors limit Manchester City to one goal before Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino turned the tie on its head.

Former Reds captain Gerrard highlighted Alexander-Arnold’s incredible performances over both legs of the Champions League quarter-final.

“If you look at his age, and the magnitude of the game over the both legs and who he was up against – I think he has to be the star man over the two legs,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

Liverpool FC signed Virgil van Dijk in a club record £75m deal from Southampton in the January transfer window.

Alexander-Arnold is competing with Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez for a full-back spot under Liverpool FC boss Klopp.
