Liverpool beat Manchester City in the biggest game of the season so far on Sunday. 

The Reds moved eight points clear at the top of the Premier League thanks to a 3-1 win at Anfield. 

Many supporters and pundits alike are suggesting that this, finally, could be their year. 

But this win has been a long time coming. Liverpool have been so good for so long now. Everything is going right for Jurgen Klopp right now - and it has been for quite some time. 

Much of the success has been credited to their two full-backs - Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson. The latter provided an assist for Mohamed Salah's goal against City on Sunday. 

The duo have been praised for re-inventing their roles by providing incredible attacking support as well as solid defensive cover. 

It's been well documented for a while that Liverpool's full-backs are rising superstars - but the latest stats suggest the two are out-performing some of the best attacking trios in Europe. 

According to data collected by BT Sport, Alexander-Arnold and Robertson have provided 30 assists between them since the start of the 2018/19 season. 

Alexander-Arnold and Robertson are providing plenty of assists

Only Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele can match them, with 30 of their own. 

So who has provided less than 30? 

Well, Paris Saint-Germain's trio of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar have only managed 26 in Ligue 1.  

Mbappe and Neymar can't match them

Similarly, Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry and Philippe Coutinho have only provided 25 assists between them for Bayern Munich. 

ANALYSIS
GIVEMESPORT'S Ollie Browning says:

Considering Alexander-Arnold and Robertson are DEFENDERS, the fact they are outperforming some of the best forward trios in Europe is astonishing. 

Liverpool could end their wait for a PL title

With their attacking support, it's hard to look past Liverpool lifting the Premier League title this season, especially after their huge win against Man City.
