Trent Alexander-Arnold And Andy Robertson Have 34 Assists Between Them Since Start Of 2018/19

Trent Alexander-Arnold And Andy Robertson Have 34 Assists Between Them Since Start Of 2018/19

Liverpool might just have the two best full-backs in world football at the moment, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson absolutely head and shoulders above everyone else in terms of assists.

Last night, the two combined exceptionally for Liverpool's second in the thrilling 4-3 Champions League win over Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield. Robertson started the move off from the back and ended up getting in the box to finish it after Alexander-Arnold whipped in a typically teasing cross.

And incredibly, the goal means the pair have registered a total of 34 assists since the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

The dynamic duo are absolutely essential to Jurgen Klopp's "heavy metal football" with their natural width and were key in the club's record Premier League points tally and sixth Champions League triumph last term.

Alexander-Arnold broke the Premier League record for assists from a defender in a single campaign with 12, while his colleague Robertson was only one behind on 11.

They've continued in the same vein this season, with Alexander-Arnold ahead again with three to Robertson's two thus far.

Asked about raising each other's game through assists last season, Robertson told Sky Sports: "Yeah, look, delighted. He got one as well. I'm just keeping in front! But it's all about trying to help the team, and that's why we did it [had a competition to get the most assists], it pushes both of us.

"I think it proves it by the numbers this season. But it's friendly banter and hopefully it's stayed that way the whole way through. Whoever wins it now it's going to be incredible and good numbers from both of us."

The fact that Real Madrid pair Sergio Ramos and Marcelo got in the FIFPro World XI ahead of them is just criminal.
