James vs Alexander-Arnold: Rio Ferdinand picks better player between Chelsea, Liverpool defenders

james vs alexander arnold rio ferdinand picks better player between chelsea liverpool defenders

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, believes Chelsea’s Reece James is currently a better all-round player than Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.

James helped new Chelsea manager Graham Potter record his first-ever UEFA Champions League win on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old defender scored a goal and provided an assist in Chelsea’s Champions League 3-0 win over AC Milan at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Alexander-Arnold, meanwhile, also made headlines on Tuesday after he scored a stunning free-kick goal in Liverpool’s Champions League 2-0 win against Rangers at Anfield.

The 23-year-old has recently come under fire for his poor defensive displays for Liverpool.

Speaking to BT Sport, Ferdinand asserted that James’ defensive abilities put him ahead of Alexander-Arnold.

“On the ball, I believe he [Reece James] is equally as good as Trent, but defensively he is a notch up in one versus one situation. That’s the difference between them at the moment. It is a great subplot for the Premier League,” Ferdinand said.

“The best players have a rivalry, and they will push each other. In my eyes, Reece is ahead right now, but Trent will come out of this spell and that could change.”
