A recap to 9 Months ago, all 3 players were only recognized as make-shift substitute for the Simeon Mignolet, Nathan Clyne and Alberto Moreno. 23yr old Loris Karius have just completed a 4.7 million pounds move from Bundesliga outfit Mainz, 23yr old Andy Robertson was signed from Hull city for a reported 8 million pounds while Alexander-Arnold was barely promoted to the senior team. The 3 however have gone to convince Jurgen Kloop on why they should be regular starters. Loris Karius was able to convince repay the faith the placed in him by Jurgen Kloop as the German have gone on to make some saves when called upon. He’s stabilization of the Liverpool defense have made him a permanent starter for now. Andy Robertson finally got his moment after patiently waiting on the bench. Alberto Moreno’s injury provided the Robertson the opportunity and the Scots made no mistake as he gone on to be a cult hero and an integral part of Kloop’s Liverpool project.
Alexander Arnold seized the opportunity presented to him when Nathan Clyne was in the sideline to cement his spot in the first team.
As the countdown to Kiev continues, Kloop must find way to get to the right mind of this defensive revelation of this 3 whose contribution and efforts compliments the attacking trio. It is no longer news that Liverpool plays attacking football but Robertson and Alexander-Arnold plays the defensive role of their tactic. The players does more defensive work to offensive work as the cover for Salah and Mane when Liverpool are on the offensive.
