Liverpool defender Alexander-Arnold enters Guinness Book of Records

Following his fine form in the 2018/19 season, Trent Alexander-Arnold has entered the 2020 Guinness Book of Records. 

Alexander-Arnold, who helped Liverpool finish second in the Premier League, one point behind Champions Manchester City, provided 12 assists last season. The right-back's assists were more than any other defender has registered since the England's top flight was rebranded in 1992. The record was previously held by two Everton players, Andy Hinchliffe who had 11 assists in 1994/95 with Leighton Baines matching the tally in the 2010/11 season. 

This saw the England international earn a place in the Guinness Book of Records as he providing an assist for Sadio Mane against Wolves on the final day of last season. 

"It's an honour. I've always wanted to go forward and help the team to create as many chances as possible," he said.

"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, the manager and all the support in the background, this record wouldn't be possible."

"I always used to read [the Guinness World Records book] as a kid because they’re fun to read, to see the different records and what people are up to all around the world. It’s an unbelievably proud moment for me and all of my family – and hopefully something that will stand for a few years."
