Despite bursting onto the scene just five years ago, the 22-year-old defender is already widely regarded as one of the best right-backs in the world.
It wasn't all plain sailing, though, on FIFA 17, Alexander-Arnold was a fresh-faced 17-year-old on the fringes of Liverpool's first team and was practically an unusable player on the game, with a below par overall rating of just 68 - including just 60 defending and 67 passing.
However, after impressing in league cup games, the right-back would go on to cement himself in Jurgen Klopp's starting line-up.

Since then, Alexander-Arnold has since seen his FIFA rating soar after earning multiple upgrades on the game since his induction five years ago.
After stellar performances in front of the Kop, Alexander-Arnold quickly claimed himself a 'Team of the Season' (TOTS) card, boasting 96 passing. How's that for an upgrade?
Now rated an overall of 87, Alexander-Arnold has seen his pace, passing and physical stats rise astronomically, with the star now rated as one of the best right-backs to use on the game.
You can expect Alexander-Arnold to receive another boost to his overall rating in FIFA 23, too, especially if he has a brilliant 2021/22 season with Liverpool.
Alexander-Arnold's addition to the game saw him implemented as a silver card with an individual stat of 67 shooting to his name.
Alexander-Arnold's rise on FIFA was quickly noted during the 2017/18 season after he burst onto the European stage, earning his first special card in the process.
FIFA 19 saw Alexander-Arnold become one of the most used cards on Ultimate Team.
During the course of the year, the Liverpool right-back affirmed himself as one of the best in the Premier League after bagging his first 'Player of the Season' (POTS) card.
As you can imagine, FIFA 20 saw yet another successful year for Alexander-Arnold after claiming an array of special cards.
After bagging multiple upgrades, the right-back deservedly earned himself his first TOTS card, cementing himself among the world's best.
FIFA 21 was another huge year for Alexander-Arnold after he secured another TOTS card, among a host of special upgrades to his name.
Alexander-Arnold's rise from a silver 68 rating to becoming the best right-back on the game with a rating of 87 is some jump.
FIFA fans can expect the 22-year-old to receive a host of in-forms come the start of the game, too, especially if he continues his stellar start to the season in the domestic and European competitions.
