Trent Alexander-Arnold's assist stats in 2019 are ridiculous

Trent Alexander-Arnold's right foot has quickly become one of world football's deadliest weapons.

Few players can deliver crosses and set-pieces quite like the Liverpool right-back and he recorded yet another assist in the 3-1 win over Arsenal yesterday.

The Englishman's pinpoint corner was expertly met by Joel Matip, putting the Reds 1-0 up just before half-time.

Alexander-Arnold's crossing was a constant threat throughout the match, with the 20-year-old creating six chances as well.

As a result of his special right foot, the Liverpool man has now recorded some outrageous assist stats in 2019.

He has notched 11 assists this year alone, three more than any other Premier League player - and more than Mesut Ozil, David Silva, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane combined in that time period.

Alexander-Arnold has also assisted nine times in his last 10 matches at Anfield, including five in his last five at Liverpool's home.

Those numbers are ridiculous for a full-back.

If he continues to deliver the ball with such accuracy, he will surpass his assist tally from 2018/19 - which was 12 in total.

Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah

After the victory over Arsenal, Alexander-Arnold certainly wasn't getting carried away with Liverpool's performance.

“We’ve still got 35 games left, it’s a long season,” he insisted.

“It’s good to get off to a good start and we need to keep up that momentum.

“We’ve won so many games in a row, hopefully next week we can do the same and after the internationals as well.”

Alexander-Arnold's mural

He's spot on, but there's no denying that Liverpool are going to be challenging for the Premier League title once again.

Alexander-Arnold needs to be on the top of his game for the reminder of the season if they are to win it and to make sure he's guaranteed a starting place for England at Euro 2020.

The footballing world really is his oyster right now and Liverpool are lucky to have him.
