Liverpool’s full-back duo of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson have proved their immense value to Jurgen Klopp this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side has thrown up a number of surprises this season, with the biggest shock coming in the Premier League as Liverpool have been as good as Manchester City.

Even if the league leaders finish the campaign a point ahead of the Reds, it would be entirely wrong to claim that they have been better than Liverpool.

The Anfield outfit could finish second with 97 points – a points tally that has been good enough to win the league 117 times out 119. The only occasions that it wouldn’t be enough is this season and last.

The title race aside, one of the biggest surprises this year has come in the shape of Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.


The Liverpool duo has 22 Premier League assists this season, with each fullback creating 11 goals.

With the lack of a natural no.10 at the club, the responsibility to create goals has fallen to Robertson and Trent.

They have responded incredibly, assisting a combined 26 goals and allowing Liverpool’s front line to regularly score from their pinpoint crosses.

This is hugely impressive when you consider the fact that Salah, Mane and Firmino aren’t the tallest forwards in the world.

It’s too soon to label Trent Alexander-Arnold as the best right back in the world, with his defensive game still lacking. Robertson, however, is the most complete left back in Europe without a doubt.

As a collective, Liverpool own the best fullback duo in the world, with their creativity unmatched by any other fullbacks in the world.
