Montage of Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold shows he could play as a midfielder

Crystal Palace v Liverpool FC - Premier League

Trent Alexander-Arnold was at his marvellous best during Liverpool's 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

While his opposite full-back Andrew Robertson had a tough night dealing with Adama Traore, it took less than 10 minutes for him to create yet another goal for the Reds.

Just as he turned provider for Virgil van Dijk against Manchester United, Alexander-Arnold whipped in a glorious corner to find the head of Jordan Henderson and fire Liverpool into the lead.

Raul Jimenez eventually chalked off the opening goal with a headed finish off his own, before Roberto Firmino fired home a late winner to maintain Liverpool's remarkable winning streak.

However, that didn't stop fans from talking about Alexander-Arnold after the game and especially when his corner meant that he'd reached 10 Premier League assists for the season.

Not only did that mean he became only the 13th Liverpool player to reach double figures in a campaign, but he established himself as the very first to achieve it in more than one term.

It also led to some amusing observations such as the fact he'd amassed as many Premier League assists this season as United's Jesse Lingard has in his whole career.

Oh, and he only needs 32 assists from his next 421 games in England's top division to draw level with the great Paul Scholes.

Compilation of Alexander-Arnold's passing

In fact, Alexander-Arnold's creativity has been so impressive that many have wondered whether he'll move to midfield later on his career, even branding him the Kevin De Bruyne of full-backs.

And it's a topic that has been addressed by YouTuber 'ASComps - Match Compilations', who released a video titled: "Has Trent Alexander-Arnold Outgrown Fullback?"

Before we sink our teeth into the question, we'll let you decide for yourself, so check out five whole minutes of Alexander-Arnold channelling his inner Steven Gerrard:

GIVEMESPORT's Kobe Tong says

The sight of Alexander-Arnold pinging some of those diagonal balls is truly something.

I defy anybody to say there's a better right-back in world football right now and it's the dynamic that you see in the video above that really elevates Alexander-Arnold from the rest of the pack.

There's nobody in the game who is unleashing those sort of passes and set-piece deliveries from defensive positions at the moment. 

It's something that's almost unique to Liverpool and I have no doubt that other teams will be looking to add a similar asset - if available - to their own side.

For that reason, I think Liverpool are better off keeping Alexander-Arnold at right-back, even though I'm confident he could slot into the midfields of most Premier League teams.

Don't fix something that ain't broke which, in this case, entails keeping Alexander-Arnold as a 10/10 right-back and not an 8/10 central midfielder. He's like Gerrard, but not Gerrard.
