Liverpool and England right-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold has bagged a spot in the Guinness World Records 2020 with his outstanding assist.
The 21-year-old defender racked up 12 assists during the 2018/19 season, to achieve the record for the most English Premier League assists by a defender in a single season.
To make the achievement even sweeter, Alexander-Arnold has replaced Everton duo Andy Hinchcliffe and Leighton Baines as the new record holder in the process.
While 2018-19 was a very impressive campaign individually for the England international, he was quick to pay tribute to his team-mates, with Liverpool falling just one point short of the league title.
Alexander-Arnold actually achieved 16 assists in all competitions, with 12 of these coming in Premier League matches.
“It’s an honour. I’ve always wanted to go forward and help the team to create as many chances as possible. It’s obviously down to the lads to put the ball into the back of the net, because football is a team game and without them this record wouldn’t be possible.
“It’s an unbelievably proud moment for me and my family, and something I hope will stand for a few years,” Trent Alexander-Arnold
Alexander-Arnold also singled out two defenders in particular for allowing him to set the record.
Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson ended last season with 11 league assists himself, while Virgil van Dijk allowed both full-backs to get forward as he starred at centre-back.
“[Robertson] probably thought he had the competition wrapped up!” he said.
“Near the end of the season we both hit really good form, we were both getting lots of assists and it was good to help the team in those games that we needed to win.
“[Van Dijk] is a world-class player and the best I have played with. We benefited a lot last season knowing we have players like Virgil giving us the protection behind us.”
The Reds right-back has begun the new season where he left off and already has two league assists to his name after eight matches.
