Trent Alexander-Arnold will captain Liverpool for the first time this evening in the Champions League clash with FC Midtjylland.

The right-back makes his first start for the Reds since November 8 after recovering from injury and wears the armband as they wrap up their Group D campaign in Denmark.

It represents the latest landmark moment in the Scouser’s career on what will be his 147th appearance for the club since breaking into the senior set-up in 2016-17.

A Champions League and Premier League winner with Liverpool in the previous two seasons, Alexander-Arnold tonight skippers the team he has supported since childhood.

Jürgen Klopp’s side have already secured qualification for the Champions League last 16 and guaranteed top spot in the section.
