Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Mark Schwarzer has criticised Trent Alexander-Arnold for his role in Fulham’s opening goal against Liverpool.

• 'Get off the ground': Commentator points finger at Liverpool star for Mitrovic goal • Klopp says he may cancel a potential Liverpool deal after bad news from Kirkby Aside from the goal, Liverpool’s No.66 looked fairly shaky in the first 45 minutes in west London, as he also gave away a cheap freekick for a careless handball near the halfway line.

After such an impressive display against Manchester City in the FA Community Shield final, it was surprising to see Alexander-Arnold start so slowly against the Cottagers.

Schwarzer – who made 220 appearances for Fulham – said: “The one criticism is to Alexander-Arnold at the far post, he didn’t jump.

“Maybe he wasn’t aware of him because Mitrovic starts his run very late and by the time he realises he’s there, it’s too late because Mitrovic is already above him and has the advantage.” In truth, the England international needed to do better.

Well, the 49-year-old singled the £160,000-a-week man out after Aleksandr Mitrovic headed home at Craven Cottage.

Of course, Mitrovic is a physical presence who bullies many defenders, but Alexander-Arnold could’ve got his body in the way more, or at least made more of an effort to jump and put the Serbian off.
