Liverpool player breaks Premier League record during Burnley encounter

A Liverpool player has broken a Premier League record during their game against Burnley.

Despite a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the start of February, the Reds are still competing in four competitions.

Indeed, on Saturday, a professional 3-1 victory over Burnley in the Premier League saw Trent Alexander-Arnold break an impressive Premier League record.

Liverpool opened the scoring in the first half, with Alexander-Arnold’s corner drawing Burnley shot-stopper James Trafford off of his line and falling to Diogo Jota, who nodded home from six yards.

By claiming the assist Alexander-Arnold has set up 58 goals, which is more than any other defender in Premier League history.

The England international has achieved the feat at just 25 years old.

Speaking ahead of the Burnley encounter Alexander-Arnold told CNN he remained focused on winning “every single trophy possible” and had targeted that “quadruple” this term.

Liverpool are currently fighting on four fronts, topping the Premier League by two points, while also through to the last-16 Europa League, the fifth round of the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup final, set to take place at the end of the month.

“It’s only a couple of weeks before we can get our hands on the first piece of silverware,” Alexander-Arnold said, in reference to the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea.

“Well, Carabao Cup’s a 50/50 chance. I think the other competitions, the cup competitions, speak for themselves because it’s knockout football.

“So I would back ourselves against any team in the world, really, to go and be able to beat them over a game or over two legs.”

Alexander-Arnold added: “Every game is almost like a final now because let’s just say another team looks like they’re clicking into gear, which means that it’s going to go down to the wire as usual.

“Every game is a must-win. Simple as that and that’s the way you want it. You want to get pushed, you want to push yourself as far and as hard as you can and test yourself to the limit.

“Every single game is a must-win and even a draw feels like a loss no matter the context of it.”
