Alexander-Arnold matches Ronaldo assist tally
On the back of his assist for Mane, a statistic surrounding Trent Alexander-Arnold has come to light to show just how talented he really is.
Despite only being 22 years of age and, of course, a right-back, Trent now has 34 Premier League assists to his name for Liverpool.
In comparison, Cristiano Ronaldo, who won three Premier Leagues, the Champions League and a Ballon d’Or whilst on Man United’s books, took six years to reach an assist total of 34 in the PL for United.
Alexander-Arnold would also reach that total in 65 fewer games than the now Juventus star – a simply remarkable achievement.
