Liverpool's star defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has secured a spot in Guinness World Records 2020 with his stunning assist record in Premier League last season. 

Alexander-Arnold had assisted 12 goals in the Premier League and in all competitions, he set up a total of 16 goals. Last season, he had only three Premier League assists until he doubled the tally with a hat-trick of assists against Watford in February. The 21-year-old then further set up another six goals in the remaining six Premier League matches.

By the end of the 2018-19 season, Alexander-Arnold had 12 assists, one better than his Liverpool teammate Andy Robertson, who had equaled the previous record of 11, which was jointly held by Everton's Andy Hinchcliffe and Leighton Baines for the 1994-95 and 2010-11 seasons, respectively.

"He probably thought he had the competition wrapped up," Alexander-Arnold joked. "Near the end of the season we both hit really good form, we were both getting lots of assists and it was good to help the team in those games that we needed to win," the young defender added.

Speaking to the official website of Guinness World Records, Alexander-Arnold said, "It's an unbelievably proud moment for me and my family, and something I hope will stand for a few years. It's an honor. 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."

The Liverpool-born has had a fantastic 2019. Apart from his first-ever Guinness World Records title, he was named in the Champions League Squad of the Season and PFA Team of the Season.

The Reds have had a tremendous start to their 2019-20 season as they have won all their Premier League games so far. They are set to next head to Old Trafford to take on a struggling Manchester United, who ironically are only two points clear of the relegation zone.
