Liverpool: Fans salute Trent Alexander-Arnold after formal recognition of his assists record

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold has been named in the Guinness World Records book for 2020 for claiming the most Premier League assists by a defender in a single season, as noted by liverpoolfc.com.

The England international provided no fewer than 12 assists in the 2018/19 Premier League for the Reds, with only wingers Eden Hazard and Ryan Fraser setting up more goals in the division last season. [via premierleague.com]

Alexander-Arnold shared a photo of himself holding a copy of the book and a certificate verifying his world record on his Twitter account @trentaa98.

The 21-year-old told liverpoolfc.com that it was “an honour” and “an unbelievably proud moment for me and all of my family” to be named in the Guinness World Records book, which he claims to have read frequently as a child.

Fellow Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson ran his team-mate very close last season with 11 Premier League assists, with Alexander-Arnold setting up another two league goals this term to bring his assists tally to 16 in the Premier League since his debut and 23 in total during his club career.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter hugely enjoyed the inclusion of the England youngster in the Guinness World Records book for 2020:
