Trent Alexander-Arnold Is Getting Ripped To Shreds For Taking Home The Match Ball

If you score a hat-trick in any competitive fixture then you fully deserve to take home the match ball, there's no denying that.

But do you really deserve to keep it if you assist three goals?

Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander Arnold recorded that feat on Wednesday night, becoming the youngest player to get three assists in a single Premier League game against Watford.

It was a great achievement but many thought his decision to take home the match ball after the game was a bit too far.

That's right. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Trent kept the match ball following his hat-trick of assists and plenty ripped into the England international.

It certainly picked up traction on social media, with comments questioning whether that was a thing or not.

Here's just a few reactions from Twitter:

Can Liverpool go on and win the Premier League this season, or will Manchester City retain their title?
