The England international defender has formed a deadly defensive partnership with Andy Robertson who occupies the left-back position at Liverpool and they have both established themselves as two of the most attacking defenders in Europe in recent times. But while Neville believes that Arnold is a great attack-minded player, he should improve on his primary duty which is to defend. Continue reading NEVILLE SAYS ARNOLD SHOULD IMPROVE DEFENSIVELY→
