Trent Alexander-Arnold equalled his own record of the most Premier League assists from a defender in Liverpool’s 3-2 come back victory against West Ham.
The West Derby-born baller now has 24 league assists since the start of last season, which is the most in the PL in that span, and he 21-year-old looks on course to break his own game-changing levels before the end of the season.
Only Cesc Fabregas (20y 134d) and Wayne Rooney (21y 63d) have reached 25 Premier League assists at a younger age than TAA (21y 140d), putting the Liverpool right back amongst elite company. He’s also only four behind Kevin De Bruyne in the assist rankings for the 2019-20 season.
Speaking on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports last night, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher remarked: “In the best team in Europe, the best playmaker is a right-back from West Derby” – which served as a rose-tinted, but accurate, reflection on one of the best young ballers in world football.
In other young baller news, 17-Year-old Dortmund baller Giovanni Reyna is wanted by England to play at senior level.
