Trent Alexander-Arnold has been officially named in the Guinness Book of World Records 2020, according to the Mirror.
Liverpool’s right-back earned the accolade after notching 12 Premier League assists in 2018/19, the most of any defender in the competition’s history.
Overall, Trent assisted 16 goals last season – which is an outrageous number for a midfield playmaker – let alone a right-back!
This term, he’s on two in the top flight and one in the Champions League – so is well on his way to notching up another serious tally.
Gareth Southgate bizarrely decided to pick Kieran Trippier for both of England’s recent qualifying fixtures, which while mystifying, is of benefit to us long-term.
Trent will be fully fit for the Manchester United clash on Sunday, and considering there is nobody who can do the same job he can at right-back, any rest we can allow him this term will be massively helpful.
Andy Robertson played in two full games for Scotland though, so Trent’s partner in crime will definitely need a break at the end of the month when the EFL Cup rolls around.
