Trent Alexander-Arnold's Pass For Liverpool's Controversial Penalty Was Ridiculous

Trent Alexander-Arnold once again showed his incredible passing prowess as he found Diogo Jota for Liverpool's controversial penalty against Crystal Palace.


Alexander-Arnold is not exactly the conventional right back, and has become the most creative player in Liverpool's system under Jurgen Klopp.

The full back has a passing range that has drawn comparisons with some of the best passers in the Premier League's history, such as Kevin de Bruyne and David Beckham.

On Sunday he showed just how good he is, with his latest incredible pass, that led to the incident in which Vicente Guaita was adjudged to have brought down Jota, late in the game, launching it from his own half to find the forward's run.

The decision to give a penalty on the end of Trent's pass, with Jota looking to have run into Guaita, and having no chance to win the ball, caused uproar.

Liverpool had taken an early 2-0 lead in the game, with Virgil van Dijk heading in unmarked from a corner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain doubling the lead, and looked to be completely dominating.

Palace came back late in the first half and could have had two goals, if it wasn't for a pair of excellent saves from Alisson in the Reds' goal.

Odsonne Edouard did make it 2-1, after just 10 minutes of the second half, and Patrick Vieira's team looked most likely to score again, but Alisson kept making brilliant saves.

Just a minute before the penalty, the Brazilian clawed a lob as it looked certain for a goal, and just second later Alexander-Arnold produced a moment of brilliance and the referee produced a moment of madness and it was all over.
