Eight amazing Alexander-Arnold stats after his 100th Liverpool appearance

Quick Reads

It’s easy to forget that Trent Alexander-Arnold is still just 21 years old, given he’s just made his 100th appearance for Liverpool.

The Liverpool-born full-back has been with the club since he was six years old, coming up through the youth ranks before making his first-team debut in 2016. He made his 100th appearance for the club in the dramatic 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

It’s been a stratospheric rise for the young Kop kero. Here are some of the most outstanding stats from his time at the club to date.

– He has an overall win percentage of 73%. Of the 100 games Alexander-Arnold has featured in, Liverpool have won 73, drawn 14 and lost 13.

– Of 66 Premier League games, he’s won 50 and lost just five – that’s a win percentage in the league of 76.92%. The Reds have kept 20 clean sheets and conceded just 44 goals when he’s featured.

– He’s provided 16 assists from 65 league games. That’s a rate of 0.24 assists per game. For reference, Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard – third, fourth and sixth in the Premier League’s all-time assist chart – had an assist rate of 0.21, 0.17 and 0.18, respectively.

– Alexander-Arnold assisted 12 goals last season – the most any defender has ever managed in the Premier League. He even got his name in the Guinness Book Of Records for it.

– Only Kevin De Bruyne has played more key passes (4.0 per game) than Alexander-Arnold (3.6) in the Premier League this season. Despite operating as a full-back, the Liverpool man has a playmaker-like quality, consistently playing through-balls and creating chances with deep diagonal crosses.

– When Liverpool faced Real Madrid in 2018, Alexander-Arnold became the first teenager to start a European Cup or Champions League final in defence since Johan Neeskens played right-back for Ajax against Panathinaikos in 1971.

– He was also only the 11th teenager in history to start a European Cup of Champions League final, and the first since Porto’s Carlos Alberto in 2004.

– He’s the youngest ever player to start back-to-back Champions League finals.
