Liverpool: Trent Alexander-Arnold has been on fire this season

With the latest international break now underway, it seems a good time to reflect on Liverpool’s start to their 2021/22 campaign so far.

With 22 points on the board from 11 Premier League games, the Reds have won six, drawn four and lost one in the process, scoring 31 goals along the way, more than any other side in the league.

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

Outside of the league, Liverpool have also managed to win every Champions League and Carabao Cup games they’ve been involved in.

One player that has featured heavily for the Merseyside club so far this season and has been involved in a significant number of goals is right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.

With 12 appearances under his belt at this point in the season across the Premier League and Champions League, the defender has managed to provide seven assists and grabbed his first goal of the season with a brilliant free-kick in their recent 3-2 defeat against Liverpool.

In addition to this, it may not be a surprise to hear that Alexander-Arnold, who is currently valued at £67.5m according to Transfermarkt, has racked up an average of 3.3 key passes per game in the Premier League so far this season, highlighting how much of an attacking threat he is for Jurgen Klopp side.

While Mohamed Salah will understandably be seen as Liverpool’s star man this season given how he’s managed to score 15 goals in 15 games across all competitions so far this season, we feel that Alexander-Arnold is definitely deserving of some praise for his efforts this term as well.

With pundit Rio Ferdinand describing Alexander-Arnold as a “fabulous footballer” after his display against Atletico Madrid at Anfield where he assisted both of Liverpool’s goals in the 2-0 win, it’s good to see that he is getting some recognition.

Despite his frightening attacking statistics, Alexander-Arnold has also played his part defensively for the team with an average of 1.3 tackles, 1.4 clearances and 1.9 interceptions per game in the league, which is higher than the average of clearances and interceptions he made in the league last season.

If the England international can keep delivering the same sort of performances that he has been doing in the campaign so far that have put him as Liverpool’s second-highest rated player in the league according to WhoScored with an overall rating of 7.7/10, throughout the rest of the campaign, then he could well give the club a great chance of securing the Premier League title.
