Trent Alexander-Arnold was born in West Derby, home of Liverpool Football Club's training ground, Melwood. He joined Liverpool's academy in 2004 at the age of six and went on to captain the club at U16 and U18 level. In 2015, Alexander-Arnold was singled out by Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard in his autobiography, My Story, with Gerrard praising Alexander-Arnold's qualities and tipping him to have a bright future at the club. In the run up to the 2015–16 season, Alexander-Arnold was selected in the first team squad by then-manager Brendan Rodgers for the team's final pre-season friendly against Swindon Town, marking his unofficial debut for the club.
In the build-up to the 2016–17 Premier League campaign, he travelled with the Liverpool squad to the USA as part of the club's pre-season tour, and on the opening day of the season he was named on the bench against Arsenal.
On 25 October 2016, Alexander-Arnold made his first team debut in the fourth round of the EFL Cup in a 2–1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. He was booked in the first half for a foul on Ben Davies before being substituted for first-choice right-back Nathaniel Clyne in the 68th minute. Former Liverpool captain and manager Graeme Souness lauded Alexander-Arnold after his debut, stating that he has "all the attributes to be a top player." His performance also earned him a spot in the EFL Cup Team of the Round alongside teammate Daniel Sturridge. On 8 November, Liverpool announced that Alexander-Arnold, along with Kevin Stewart and fellow academy youngster Ben Woodburn, had signed new long-term deals with the club. He started in Liverpool's next EFL Cup match on 29 November, a 2–0 win against Leeds United and registered his first assist for the club, setting up Divock Origi for the opener. He was named man of the match for his performance. Alexander-Arnold then made his Premier League debut on 14 December, coming on as a late substitute for Origi in a 3–0 win over Middlesbrough and made his first league start in a 1–1 draw with Manchester United on 15 January 2017.
Alexander-Arnold has played for England at various youth levels. On 7 October 2016, he scored a brace while playing as a right-back for England U19 in a 3–1 win over Croatia. Alexander-Arnold repeated the feat in November in a 3–2 loss to Wales, though his first goal was later credited as an own goal by Mark Harris, and on 24 March 2017 recorded another brace for England U19 in a 3–0 defeat of Spain which secured England's qualification for the 2017 UEFA European Under-19 Championship.
