"Other players..." - Liverpool star claims he has one thing sets him apart from his rivals
| Last updated
Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has described the personal trait which he believes sets him apart from others at right-back.
Alexander-Arnold has been a key part of Jurgen Klopp's side since his ascent to regular first team action in the 2017/18 season.
A Liverpool youth academy graduate, the 24-year-old began his career as a wide midfielder before youth coaches identified his talents at right-back.
It was this position change that sped up his rise to the first team, with little competition for first choice right-back Nathaniel Clyne.
When Clyne suffered a back injury in the summer of 2017 that ruled him out for the season, Alexander-Arnold stepped in and quickly became established as one of the top young talents in world football.
His aggressive attacking play, and superb crossing ability, has set him apart from many other competitors in the position.
And speaking in a recent interview, Alexander-Arnold has pointed out another trait that makes him stand out.

In a video posted by Liverpool's official Twitter account, the right-back explained: "I have no regrets on mistakes.
"I don't fear making the mistakes, because I feel it was the right thing to do. I think that's probably a difference I've got compared to other players.
"Other players will see risky passes and think it's not quite on, and I think in a negative way about the risk, whereas I think in a positive way. And that's just the way I play the game, I guess."
During his time at Liverpool, Alexander-Arnold has registered an incredible 46 assists in 182 Premier League appearances. Since his debut, no full-back in the division has had more.
He has also registered an assist against every one of the current 19 teams in the Premier League. And after Liverpool's 2-0 win over Everton on Monday, the right-back will hope to help Klopp's side kickstart a run of top form to push them towards the Champions League qualification places.
