    From an English perspective. What do y'all think of this player? Thus far I've been very impressed but what I've seen. Could be the next home grown Anfield hero IMO.

    He's a proper player, I think quite like Gareth Barry will end up a defensive midfielder.

    When is Clyne back? He'll be back in the bench once he's back.

    Clyne should be fit soon.

    However I hope TAA keeps his place in the team. Infinitely better going forward than Clyne, and given games he'll be able to work on his defensive duties.

    Personally I'd play TAA at home against the lesser teams where we're more likely to be on the front foot all game. And Clyne in the more difficult fixtures we'll need to defend more.

    Few more seasons and Clyne won't get a look in though, he's a very limited player and frustrating to watch how many attacks he ruins with a lack of quality or fear or terrible delivery. Trent is already having a positive effect going forward and much more pro-active, defensively naive right now but he's still a bairn.

    I haven't really been following Liverpool. I thought Clyne was one of your better defenders. Good for the kid then.

    He's 18 mind. Bound to have those kinds of slips ups.

    He's a good defender and he is decent in the build up from the back. He get's proper nosebleeds when near the final third though. Doesn't stop him from trying to contribute, but teams have figured out long ago that it's no problem to leave space open down the flank if it's only Clyne out there.

    Not saying he lacks talent... just stating facts. Facts don't care if you're 18 or 29

    He's a steady Eddie. One of them that will get 7/10 most games without making much of an impact. He's the best defensive wing back we have, but that's like been the best looking man in a room full of goats, it's not hard to achieve. TAA has done more in a few games than I've seen Clyne do in recent memory.

    Raw talent, just hope he doesn't go the way of Ibe.

    He did slip up defensively yesterday, so yeah, the new Stevie G perhaps.

    Good of you to put in the bold, otherwise the pun would've gone unnoticed.

    Yup, he'll no doubt be sold within 3 years and end up in the Championship. Liverpool's academy is awful.

    Ojo is the new Ibe in fairness, headless chicken. I think Arnold looks a much better prospect, the best since Gerrard probably.

    To be honest, I think Clyne is shite so maybe this lad can take his place.

    He's good but a lot of his defensive mistakes are glossed over, I can see him move further forward in the near future.

    What do people think? England have quite a few good RB options but I think he's the best of the lot. There's a reason why Liverpool struggle to create as much every time Klopp benches him.

    Would've had about 90% less appearances had he come through at Old Trafford over the last few years.

    Why would you say that especially since we have had Rashford come through recently and a gaping hole at RB?

    "But Gomez offers more defensively"

    Feck that, another valuable lesson: play to your strenghts. This kid's crossing is amazing.

    Trent is the the best English attacking fullback, AWB is the best defensively.

    His crossing is fantastic. Might not be the best defensively, but offers so much going forward.

    We play a 35 year old over the hill failed winger instead of a promising young player we bought for 20m, TAA wouldn't have been played.

    Klopp has done a great job but, dropping Alexander Arnold for Gomez in big matches has been a strange decision everytime he has done it.

    Scott McTominay has also come through recently. We are not lacking at giving academy players chances.

    I bet he has a good chance of getting in the world team of the year this season. All time assist record in one season for a full back in the Premier League, joint with Robertson and then this big performance in the semi final of the CL. What’s the competition as well?

    There isn't better RB is there even at his age? Atleast producing through a season he has?

    What an assist from the corner. Amazing.
