James Maddison hilariously jibes at Trent Alexander Arnold over Jurgen Klopp’s replay demands after Liverpool VAR controversy

The England national team is set to play Australia in an international friendly as part of their preparation to face defending European champions Italy in the UEFA Euro qualifiers. Three Lions coach Gareth Southgate has included James Maddison and Trent Alexander-Arnold in the squad.

The Premier League football action takes a break due to the FIFA international break, allowing national teams to play their respective fixtures. Maddison, meeting up Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold in national duty, decided to take a hilarious dig at his teammate that follows a recent controversy.

Maddison trolls Trent on international duty

The Three Lions remain unbeaten and currently lead their Euro qualifier group with 13 points from 5 matches, boasting 4 wins and a draw. Italy occupies the second spot, and the top two teams will advance to the next stage.


Both players were involved for their respective clubs in the recent Premier League clash between Spurs and Liverpool. The hosts, Spurs, managed a controversial 2-1 victory over the visitors, Liverpool, following a series of subsequent decisions made by the match official; however, PGMOL later released a statement acknowledging the significant error.

Liverpool suffered its first defeat of the season, while Spurs continued their winning streak under the guidance of their new manager, Ange Postecoglou.

Maddinson and Arnold crossed paths at the national team setup in St. George’s Park when the Spurs midfielder shared an Instagram story featuring Liverpool’s full-back. In response, Arnold playfully captioned it with “Still asking for a replay,” accompanied by three emojis, creating a light-hearted banter.

Spurs midfielders’ season in numbers

Tottenham Hotspur are enjoying an outstanding league campaign this season under the leadership of new boss Ange Postecoglou, currently holding the top spot in the Premier League table. They remain undefeated with six wins in eight matches, accumulating 20 points so far.


James Maddison’s arrival at Spurs has made a significant impact following the departure of their talisman, Harry Kane to Bayern Munich. Madison was entrusted with the number 10 shirt amid high expectations, and it’s safe to say he has lived up to those expectations.

The 26-year-old attacking midfielder has started in every game for Spurs this season, playing a vital role as a provider with 7 goal involvements in 8 appearances. He has emerged as one of their key figures, contributing significantly to their recent league success.
