Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold has been crowned the Premier League Young Player of the Season for 2019/20.
The West Derby superstar has comfortably established himself as the finest right-back in world football following yet another stellar campaign that culminated in Liverpool being crowned champions of England.
His club-captain Jordan Henderson was among the first to congratulate the 21-year-old sensation on social media after Alexander-Arnold was confirmed as the victor ahead of Marcus Rashford and Christian Pulisic on Friday morning.
Alexander-Arnold has been with Liverpool since the age of six and has since gone onto progress from the academy to the first-team and in quick time has won two of the biggest trophies available in club football.
Both Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson have also been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Season alongside teammate Sadio Mane, Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne, Southampton’s Danny Ings, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy and Burnley’s Nick Pope.
Alexander-Arnold bettered his assist tally (12) from last season having clocked-up an eye-watering 13 assists from right-back.
He recently became the youngest player to start in back-to-back Champions League finals and his heroics last season ensured his boyhood team ended 30 years of hurt to claim a 19th league title.
