The Liverpool man has had trouble maintaining a regular starting position under England boss, who benched the defender during the 1-0 loss to Italy in favor of Reece James of Chelsea.

However, it has since been widely reported that the 24-year-old won’t even be on the bench for Monday’s match against the Germans, after the chance of grabbing their first win in Group 3 were ruined by a 1-0 loss to Italy.

Southgate had this to say about the Liverpool defender when considering the tough decision he must make at right-back before each match;

Of course, he does have a fantastic range of passing, we’re blessed with different profiles of player in that position.”

He further noted that;

If we play with wing-backs, [Kieran] Trippier and Reece James are also exceptional with the ball, in different ways, and we’re always having to look at the full package with everything and assess the players on all of their attributes. They’ve all been to Champions League finals, some of them have been to latter stages of major tournaments with us, Trent’s won the league, Trippier’s won the Spanish league, [Kyle] Walker’s won the English league, there are so many good attributes about them.

The England national team Boss stressed that;

It’s a really difficult position to make decisions on, but we have to go with the ones we believe, and ultimately I’ll be judged on the outcome, as we know.”

Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, received praises from Southgate for working out how to best utilize Alexander-Arnold’s abilities.

I don’t see risks. You can have a style of play and a way of playing, and a balance to the team, that… at Liverpool they find a way of playing that brings the best out of his attributes. And that’s what we’re all trying to do with every team, you’re trying to build a team that accentuates the positives, and within the group protects yourselves against how the opponents might come from you.” – he said.

While Jack Grealish is suspended, Jarrod Bowen, Fikayo Tomori, and James Ward-Prowse are all not on the team.
