Trent Alexander-Arnold Brought A Disabled Liverpool Fan Onto The Anfield Pitch Yesterday

Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold showed what a diamond of a young man he is yesterday by inviting a disabled Reds' fan onto the pitch and pushing him around Anfield on his wheelchair.

The 19-year old has had an incredible breakthrough season with his boyhood club and capped off the Premier League season with a fine display in the 4-0 win over Brighton, a result that guarantees Champions League football again irrespective of what happens in the final in Kiev against Real Madrid on May 26.

Liverpool players performed a lap of honour to show their appreciation to the fans and the right-back brought ecstatic youngster Louis around with him.

The lad's father posted on Facebook to detail just what Alexander-Arnold had done for his son, including giving him free tickets for the game and player lounge passes - before making his dreams come true by bringing him onto the hallowed turf.

Trent and eight-year old Louis have developed a tight-knot bond after meeting in September and LFC Young Player of the Year has visited the cerebral palsy sufferer on more than occasion, as he revealed to the Liverpool Echo back in February.

"Me and my mum have made a really close relationship with his family so I've seen him quite often. I've been to his home two or three times to check up on him and see how he is getting on.

"I could tell that from the first time I saw him and the way his family have responded from me going to see him has given him that bit more motivation to fight his illness and try to get back to full health.

"That is why I have continued to go and see him and support him on his journey."

Well played, Trent. A class act on and off the pitch.
