“For a team to target one of your players and one of your wings is unusual at this level,” the former Republic of Ireland defender said.
“Inter, straight from the start, they thought Ivan Perisic had the better of whoever it may be coming down that right-hand side, mostly Alexander-Arnold.
“Literally everything at the start of the second half came down Inter’s left and Alexander-Arnold, each time he was caught out of position he was ball-watching.
A good night for Liverpool.
Not a great night for Trent Alexander-Arnold.
