Trent Alexander-Arnold or Kyle Walker? Former African POTY picks the better player 

Former African Footballer of the Year, Victor Ikpeba has suggested that Manchester City defender Kyle Walker is a better player than Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.

 

Alexander-Arnold was in the Liverpool team held to a 3-3 draw by early season surprise package Brighton & Hove at Anfield on Saturday, while Walker started but went off injured in the first half of Manchester City's 6-3 rout of Manchester United in Sunday's derby. 

 

The 23-year-old Alexander-Arnold is regarded as one of the best attacking fullbacks in the world but has been criticized for his defensive contribution to the Liverpool team.

 

Since making his firs team debut for the Reds against Tottenham Hotspur, the academy graduate has played 236 games, scoring 14 goals and producing an incredible 62 assists from his defensive position that helped Liverpool win the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FA Cup, League Cup and FIFA Club World Cup. 

 

Ikpeba underlined that Walker is a better all-round defender than his England teammate. 

 

Speaking on SuperSport's Monday Night Football monitored by allnigeriasoccer.com, Ikpeba stated : "If I have to compare Trent Alexander-Arnold with Walker, I'll go for Walker.

 

"He (Alexander-Arnold) is not world-class. He's not yet a finished article. "

 

Since the start of the 2018-2019 season, only Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne (366) has created more chances than Trent Alexander-Arnold (315).
