Trent Alexander-Arnold is often criticized for his inability to defend.
The Liverpool right-back has found an unexpected ally in Reece James, a player who competes with him for a starting spot in the England national team.
“I make mistakes as well,” the Chelsea man told the Daily Mail when asked about criticism Trent gets.
“I gave away a penalty against Hungary so we are both still learning our trade.
“Liverpool have 95 percent of the ball and he defends less than I have to. People have a lot of stuff to say and don’t really know the game.
“Trent is a great player.”
This is a classy response from Reece. He did not get drawn into useless debates and offered support to his England teammate.
