PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville exchanged views in a heated debate on Monday Night Football this evening. The pundit duo were discussing England's right-back dilemma ahead of the match between Everton and Crystal Palace. And things got lively when the situation around Liverpool man Trent Alexander-Arnold was on the agenda. The Reds defender was not included in Gareth Southgate's most recent squad - raising questions around the upcoming Euros tournament. Neville began by discussing all of the potential options for England in that position, looking at the stats for Alexander-Arnold, Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier, Reece James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

We've got hundreds of them here! "We've got five right-backs and Gareth Southgate is in a position whereby, it's unbelievable. We've got that many talented right-backs to pick from. I can see the conundrum and the challenges that Southgate has got." Carragher was then asked if he would select Alexander-Arnold in the England squad. He replied: "Yes. He's a unique talent. He's not the same as any other full-back. Most full-backs, even the attacking ones, the greatest ones going forward...it is up and down in a straight line. "He's a playmaker. I've said he's Kevin De Bruyne playing right-back. That's what he is. He's different." But as the debate continued, Neville gave his take on why Southgate may be reluctant to start the Scouse star. He explained: "I'm saying to myself: who are England going to be playing? Germany. Belgium. France. Portugal. "Who is he going to be playing against? Hazard. Mbappe. Sane. Jota. Ronaldo.

. I'll have Trent'." Carragher jumped in and said: "Well you're making the case for him not going. Would you not take him?" Neville began: "No, I personally would take him..." Before Carra said: "Hang on, you've just made the biggest case I've ever heard in my life for the reason why he wouldn't go and why Gareth Southgate's not picking him!" Neville replied: "Did you listen to the question I was asked? I was asked the question why would Gareth not take him - so I'm answering that question!" And Carragher shot back: "You would take Trippier ahead of him? I'm asking you. You're a right-back!"

The back-and-forth went on... Neville: "Let me finish the answer to the first question!" Carragher: "We mightn't have time. What would you do? Forget Gareth Southgate." Neville: "My point is: I'm thinking, if he is playing against Mbappe, Hazard, Sane, Ronaldo or Jota in the semi-final of a tournament this summer - who does Gareth Southgate want out on that pitch?" Carragher: "Who does Gary Neville want?" Neville: "I've been asked a different question, give me a break!" Carragher: "Oh honestly..." Neville: "I think the reason he won't take him is because he's there to win a tournament - he will trust the players like Walker, Trippier in a back three or with a wing-back, maybe James because he has more power and strength to handle an Mbappe or Ronaldo. I don't think he will take him." Carragher: "If you pick Kieran Trippier ahead of Trent Alexander-Arnold, that's embarrassing." And the bickering carried on all the way until the next advert break... Neville: "Relax..." Carragher: "No wonder we never did anything in Euro 2012 and 2016..." Neville: "He's in my squad!" Carragher: "Oh behave..."
