Right now, Trent Alexander-Arnold is the most expensive right-back in the world. In addition, he is one of the three most valuable players in Liverpool and is ranked 7th in the ranking of the most expensive English footballers. His closest defender, Harry Maguire, is in 12th position and costs 25 million less. The Transfermarkt portal estimates the Reds’ pupil at 75 million euros. Lot? Unlikely. Right now, Trent is the most creative defender in the Premier League.
Will Trent Alexander-Arnold change a club in winter or summer? Or do you think that he will stay in Liverpool for many years? You can make a bet on this future career on 22Bet website following this link 22bet.co.tz/mobile/.
In the current campaign, Alexander-Arnold has played 11 Premier League games and has 7 assists. The same number as in 36 fights last season. In addition, the Englishman has issued 3 assists in the Champions League. Total: 14 games in all tournaments and 10 assists.
Trent currently shares second place with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba on the Premier League’s best assistants list. This rating is headed by his teammate Mohamed Salah, who has 8 assists. At the same time, the Egyptian played 2 more matches than the Englishman.
Trent’s high-level performances were not accidental. Last season, the Liverpool pupil did not play well. He did not have many assists and often suffered losses. But a year earlier, in the 2019/20 campaign, Alexander-Arnold had 14 assists to become the league’s second-best assistant behind Kevin De Bruyne.
Earlier, in the 2018/19 season, the Englishman has issued 12 assists in the national championship. Then he became the third best assistant in the league after Eden Azar and Ryan Fraser. In the current campaign, Trent is gradually returning to his previous level.
In the current season, Alexander-Arnold has created 8 potential scoring chances. This is more than, for example, Bruno Fernandes (6) and Kevin De Bruyne (4). Trent creates an average of 1.72 chances for goals per game. This is his best indicator in his career. Compared to the previous season, the footballer has improved indicators of passing accuracy (80.8% / 79.4%), the number of long passes per match (5.8 / 4.2), crossings (2.4 / 1.9), total assists per match (68.6 / 66.1) and key assists per match (3.3 / 2.1).
All this suggests that Alexander-Arnold not only serves as a defender, but also helps the team a lot in attack. Liverpool have averaged 28% of their attacks this season through the center, 32% through the left flank with Andrew Robertson and 40% through the right flank, where Trent is driving.
The Englishman works well with Mohamed Salah, who either further disperses the attacks of the “red”, or ends them. By the way, in the position of right-back, the Lersisides have one more pupil – Neko Williams. But the young Welshman has no chance of winning the fight for a spot on the pitch yet.
Liverpool is the 2nd most assists in the Premier League. Only Manchester City pass more. Considerable merit in this belongs to the pupil of the “Reds”. Trent alone has made 755 passes to date. In addition, he has 9 penetrating passes into the opponent’s penalty area.
That’s more than any Liverpool midfielder. Alexander-Arnold has averaged 0.92 penetrating passes per game this season. This is his best career record, as are his potential 0.47 assists per 90 minutes.
Trent has already secured 40 assists in the Premier League. He became the third youngest player in Premier League history to reach that number. Wayne Rooney is in 2nd place, and Cesc Fabregas is in 1st place. In the 2002/2003 season, ex-Arsenal striker Thierry Henry made 20 assists, setting a league record.
In the 2019/20 campaign, De Bruyne repeated the Frenchman’s record, but did not break. Will the Liverpool graduate be able to rewrite history and become the sole champion of the Premier League in assists in 1 season? Quite possible. The 23-year-old fullback still has his entire career ahead of him and already has decent assists.
