Rio Ferdinand Finally Explains Who Is Better Between Reece James And Trent Alexander Arnold

Both Reece James and Alexander Arnold grabbed a spot on the score-sheets as their teams record victories in the UEFA Champions League this week

Rio Ferdinand has shared his thoughts on who he believes is better between the two Defenders following so much comparisons.

James netted the last goal of the night for Blues while Arnold netted a sensational free kick for Reds, bringing back the James vs Arnold debate.

Many believe Arnold is a better player to James while the others think otherwise, but to Rio, James is ahead of Arnold both attacking wise and one vs one situation.

“The difference with Reece James, he wants the fight,” Rio Ferdinand said.

“On the ball I think he’s equally as good as Trent Alexander-Arnold and defensively he’s a lot sharper. He defends a lot better than Trent in one v ones.”

“What I loved about Reece James in the second half is he was aggressive with Rafael Leao. He said ‘I’ll defend you and also be an effective player at the other end of the pitch’.”
