The Liverpool defender found himself left out of Gareth Southgate's Three Lions squad for the last set of World Cup qualifiers.
Many now believe this could indicate Alexander-Arnold missing this summer's European Championships, with Kyle Walker, Reece James and Trippier ahead in the pecking order.
Carragher spoke on Monday Night Football and praised the 22-year-old's attacking ability before criticising his omission from the England fold.

When asked if Alexander-Arnold should be going to the Euros, he replied: "Yes. He's a unique talent. He's not the same as any other full-backs I've seen before, most full-backs are up and down the line.
"He's a playmaker. I've said he's Kevin De Bruyne playing right-back and that's what he is, he's different."
Gary Neville then explained why Alexander-Arnold likely won't feature for England against some of the world's top wingers.
The duo will be picking their England squads later on this evening and Carragher quipped: "If you pick Kieran Trippier over Trent Alexander-Arnold, that is embarrassing!"
"If Trent Alexander-Arnold is not in the squad then England must have an extremely good squad," he said.
"I was surprised when he didn't get the call-up. I respect the decision, of course I do. But I didn't understand it.
"I am a manager myself; I make decisions every day, every weekend, every midweek about team selections and squad selections."
Klopp added: "We always make decisions that other people probably do not understand.
"I respect that Gareth makes his own decisions, of course, but I didn't understand it anyway because Trent Alexander-Arnold was in the last two seasons at least, let me say the season before and the season before that, the stand out right-back in world football - that is the truth and at an unbelievable young age.
"He started the season with Covid and you can imagine it took him a while to get into the season, but from the moment when he was in the season, he was one of our most consistent players and a stand-out player.
"He could play all the time, high level all these types of things, so that cannot be the reason that he was not in the squad."
