The evening of Trent Alexander-Arnold was summarised with one brutal stat, as Liverpool lost 1-0 at St. Mary’s to Southampton.
With Danny Ings rounding off a clever free-kick drill to give his team an early lead, the home side scored only four minutes.
Liverpool pushed and pressed in the second half for an equalizer, but Southampton withstood their barrage.
As for Alexander-Arnold, before the 80th minute, he had been removed and replaced by James Milner.
Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler revealed the reason why Jurgen Klopp possibly wanted to change things and take the young right-back off the field soon after his departure.
The commentator clarified that 38 times in the match, Alexander-Arnold had given the ball away – the most of any Premier League player this season.
Some fans have blamed Southampton’s goal on the youngster.
Alexander-Arnold missed the ball by attempting to chest it while James Ward-Prowse floated the free-kick into the box.

And the Anfield faithful decided that, on the south coast, the young full-back made a major mistake.
