“Obviously he’s (Fabinho) covering in at centre-half and he’s been playing unbelievable in the last few games,” Trent Alexander Arnold told Liverpool’s official website after the win over FC Midtjylland in the Champions League when asked about his thoughts on Fabinho’s injury and Rhys Williams’ impact replacing him.
“Obviously that happens and it’s disappointing – hopefully it’s not too long because we’ll miss him. That position is probably a little bare at the minute to say the least but we’ve got an amazing squad, you’ve seen Rhys Williams stepping in and doing a world-class job.”
“At such a young age with such little experience, unbelievable from him. He never really put a foot wrong. Well done to him and I think he’s got a bright future ahead.”
The 19-year-old was impressive after coming in to replace injured Fabinho and showed such understanding alongside Joe Gomez at the back.
The English defender has got a couple of weeks to prove himself to Jurgen Klopp with the uncertainty of Fabinho and Joel Matip being available for the Reds.
