Glen Johnson has claimed that Trent Alexander-Arnold is the best right back in the Premier League.

Ever since joining Liverpool, Trent Alexander-Arnold has established himself as one of the best full-backs in the Premier League. Some even go as far as to consider him among the best full-backs in the world.

The 21-year old managed 12 assists last season – a record for defenders. The England right-back has already managed to reach a quarter of his previous season’s number.

Former Liverpool player Glen Johnson has hailed Trent Alexander-Arnold as the best right-back in the Premier League. Speaking to the Express, the former England defender also made comparisons between Trent and Wan Bissaka.

“Trent Alexander-Arnold. By miles at the moment,” Glen Johnson replied when asked who he thinks was the best.

“Aaron Wan-Bissaka isn’t so much the modern full-back. He sometimes looks like a center-half playing full-back.”

“He’s a good defender but he’s not got the natural ability that Trent has got.”

Glen Johnson then talked about Chelsea’s Reece James and admitted that the youngster had potential.

“I know people speak very highly of Reece James at Chelsea and I saw his goal against Ajax.”

“He wouldn’t be in the team if he wasn’t living up to his potential and I hear he’s a great lad as well. Hopefully he can continue his form and keep the shirt.”
