Jamie Carragher compares Trent Alexander-Arnold to Kevin De Bruyne

Jamie Carragher reckons Trent Alexander-Arnold is on a par with Kevin De Bruyne after the Liverpool full-back starred in the comeback win over West Ham on Monday.

Record-equalling Liverpool moved to within four wins of a first title in 30 years but were made to prove their credentials in a battling 3-2 win over struggling Hammers.

A 21st successive league victory at Anfield matched the Reds' own top-flight record, set in 1972, while an 18th consecutive win drew them level with Manchester City's Premier League landmark set in 2017.

Alexander-Arnold played a huge role in the win at Anfield, providing the assist for Georginio Wijnaldum's opener before teeing up Sadio Mane to seal the late win.

And Anfield legend Carragher believes Alexander-Arnold, who equalled last season's league record of 12 assists for a defender, should rank alongside Manchester City's assist king De Bruyne.

"What makes him special is it is like having De Bruyne at right back, like a midfielder at right back," Carragher told Sky Sports. 

"People talk about his defending, but what he is doing – like Beckham at wing-back under Hoddle because of his quality – Alexander-Arnold is like a wing-back with the positions he plays."
