Liverpool's Alexander-Arnold wins Guinness World Record

He may only have recently turned 21, but Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold is already widely considered as one of the best full-backs in the world.


In truth, he's been the best right back in European football for the past 2 years and now he's starting to deliver in individual accolades, as well as contributing to the team.


It was announced this week that the young Scouser is now a Guinness World Record holder as well, as he replaced an Everton duo to create a new record.


The right back set a record last season for a full-back, with 12 Premier League assists (and 16 in all competitions).


The previous record for 11 assists was held by both Andy Hinchcliffe and Leighton Baines, so it will be with a little extra glee that the young Red has overtaken the Goodison icons.


The youngster said, on receiving the news of the award: "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."
