Trent Alexander-Arnold (born 7 October 1998) is an English footballer who plays as a right-back for Liverpool.
Alexander-Arnold was born and raised in Liverpool, and joined the academy in 2004 at the age of six. Seen as a very talented and versatile player, he rose through the ranks and eventually became the captain of the U16s team.
He made his U18s debut in 2014 and quickly became a regular, eventually becoming the captain of the side.
On 2 August 2015, Alexander-Arnold made his first team debut, starting at right back and putting in an impressive showing in a 2-1 friendly win at Swindon. This was followed by him signing his first professional contract when he turned seventeen in October 2015.
In the summer of 2016, Alexander-Arnold regularly featured for the first-team in pre-season, making appearances both at right-back and in his usually preferred centre midfield role. Due to the departure of Jon Flanagan on loan, Nathaniel Clyne and Connor Randall were left as the only senior right-backs, leading to supporters predicting that Alexander-Arnold could make his competitive debut sometime in the season. The youngster was given the number 66 shirt for the season.
On 25 October 2016, Alexander-Arnold made his Liverpool debut, starting and playing around 70 minutes in a 2-1 League Cup win over Tottenham. He kept his place for the next cup game, and was named man of the match in a 2-0 win over Leeds, with the full-back assisting Divock Origi's opener with a fine cross. On 14 December 2016, Alexander-Arnold made his Premier League debut, coming on as a late substitute in a 3-0 win at Middlesbrough.
On 15 January 2017, Alexander-Arnold made his first Premier League start, filling in for the injured Nathaniel Clyne in a 1-1 draw with fierce rivals Manchester United.
Arnold continued to make cameo appearances throughout the rest of the season, sometimes in a more advanced role as he did in the Merseyside Derby. On 9 May 2017, Alexander-Arnold was named Liverpool's Young Player of the Year.
Due to impressive performances in pre-season alongside an injury to Nathaniel Clyne, Arnold started the 2017-18 season as first choice right-back, starting on the opening day in a 3-3 draw at Watford. On 15 August 2017, Alexander-Arnold made his European debut, starting away to Hoffenheim in the Champions League Playoff. Arnold opened the scoring with a superb thirty yard free-kick as the Reds won 2-1 win Germany. He scored his second of the European campaign from long range in a 7-0 win at Maribor on 17 October.
On 26 December 2017, Alexander-Arnold scored his first Premier League goal, firing in from the edge of the box to net Liverpool’s third in a 5-0 win over Swansea.
