Footage Of Trent Alexander-Arnold Embarrassing Harry Maguire And Declan Rice In Training Goes Viral
Trent Alexander-Arnold heaped further agony on Harry Maguire, but at least this time the Manchester United defender was only being made a fool of in training.
It's not been a good few months for Maguire in defence for United, losing 6-1 to Spurs before the international break probably being the low point.
However things haven't got much better whilst he's been away on international duty for England. It didn't even need kick off in the Belgium game to show his failings.
Ahead of Sunday's Nations League game against the world's number one side, a clip of Alexander-Arnold turning Maguire and Declan Rice inside out before scoring went viral.

It wasn't exactly the kind of confidence boost that fans of the Three Lions, or United for that matter, would have wanted to see ahead of the game and things didn't get too much better once the match got underway.
It took Roberto Martinez's side just 16 minutes to go ahead in the game when Eric Dier took out Romelu Lukaku in the box, to give away a penalty.

The Inter striker, who left Old Trafford just six days after Maguire arrived, stepped up to score from the spot kick. Despite Dier giving it away it's clear from the replay that his defensive partner wasn't in the right position in the build up.

Alexander-Arnold was one of three right backs to start against the team who beat England twice in the 2018 World Cup, with many criticising Gareth Southgate's defensive approach.
The Liverpool full back played in his usual position whilst Kieran Trippier played at left back and Kyle Walker played on the right of a back three with Dier and Maguire.
Despite the defensive approach, the 2019 Nations League bronze medalists did equalise before half-time, with Marcus Rashford's penalty making it 1-1.
England then surprised everyone by taking the lead in the 64th minute through Mason Mount.
