Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has received many plaudits since establishing himself at Anfield but it seems the admiration is not quite as widespread as some might think.

Former Manchester United captain and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville suggested earlier this week that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a better defender than the West Derby-born Red and he has now been backed up by one of the former Crystal Palace man’s old team-mates.

22-year-old Londoner Wan-Bissaka arrived at Old Trafford last summer for an initial fee of £45m and has enjoyed a solid first season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, receiving a first call-up to the senior England team.

Football London report that Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt has heaped praise on his former team-mate when appearing on the Counter Attack podcast and says he has the edge on Trent in one crucial area.

“They are different players”, he said.

“Defensively, Aaron [Wan-Bissaka] is unbelievable, better than Trent [Alexander-Arnold].

“Yes, Trent has got his attacking and his corners, his right foot. But if you ask Wilf [Zaha] who he would want to play against, every other day, Trent or Wan-Bissaka, I think he will say Trent.

“I have got respect for Trent, because he does everything with his assists and he is great, but defensively, just ask [Raheem] Sterling how good [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka is. It is a problem, and he will switch.

“He is one of the best right-backs, I think he could be, his attacking is good, but he needs more goals or assists to his name.

“Defending comes first, but in the modern game, you need to attack, and at United, you get more of the ball, so go forward and show what you have got, but he has been doing good.”
