Trent Alexander-Arnold now has the same amount of Premier League assists as Cristiano Ronaldo in what is a remarkable stat.
This has taken his tally up to 34 Premier League assists since he made his debut back in 2016/17.
This is the same amount as Ronaldo got during his six years at Manchester United.
However, impressively, Alexander-Arnold has managed to do it in 65 fewer games.
He has made 131 Premier League appearances to date, while Ronaldo managed 196.
This also means that the 22-year-old has the same amount of assists as Harry Kane and Dele Alli, while he has one more than Cesar Azpilicueta and Paul Pogba.
One more will see him draw level with Gary Neville, Santi Cazorla, and Philippe Coutinho.
It is a fantastic achievement for the Scouser. It has led many to debate whether he is already the best right-back in the league’s history.
Alexander-Arnold could overtake Ronaldo in Premier League legend list
It really goes under the radar how much of a phenomenon that Trent Alexander-Arnold is. To have reached that number of assists at 22-years-old while playing at right-back is astonishing.
He is simply a creative master and is nowhere near his prime yet.
We know that Ronaldo is one of the absolute best players of all time. While he is more of a scorer than a creator now, his United career saw him playing as an assisting right-winger.
We believe that Alexander-Arnold will overtake the now-Juventus man’s Premier League legacy in the next few years. It is important to note that it was Ronaldo’s years at Real Madrid that saw him labelled as one of the best ever, not at United.
Alexander-Arnold is also well on his way to becoming the best right-back in Premier League history.
He is clearly more talented than the likes of Gary Neville. All he needs is the longevity and trophies to cement his greatest of all-time status.
In our eyes, the only thing that can stop it from happening is if he is moved into midfield in the next few years.
No matter what, he will be eyeing up Ryan Giggs’ all-time record of 162. Considering that he has over a decade of football still to come, it is very, very possible.
