In among the raucous celebrations at Anfield last night, the fact Trent Alexander-Arnold bettered his own incredible Premier League record became something of side note.

The rampaging right-back’s performances have been a constant feature of Liverpool’s own record breaking season which culminated in a fitting coronation on home soil following an incident packed 5-3 victory over Chelsea.

Alexander-Arnold’s pinpoint cross provided the opportunity for Roberto Firmino to head home his side’s fourth goal, astonishingly his first at Anfield this term, of a pulsating contest.

The 21-year-old’s delivery represented his 13th assist of a stellar campaign, surpassing his total from the previous season when he helped Liverpool to the runners-up spot.

While the England international, who scored Liverpoo’s second goal of the evening with a superb free-kick, continues to earn individual plaudits, Alexander-Arnold insists his own achievements would not have been possible were he not fortunate enough to be surrounded by so many outstanding team-mates and backroom staff.

When asked by Sky Sports afterwards what it all meant to him, he replied: ‘Everything. This is the one that we all wanted as fans, as players and as a club. I’d swap every medal I’ve got just to have this one around my neck.

‘The way we felt being up there on that podium is unbelievable. For the club, it’s massive.

‘I feel so lucky and so blessed to be part of such a special club. Everyone has played a massive part – the young lads, the senior lads, all the staff. It’s been a collective effort and it’s going to be a good night to celebrate.

‘Winning the Champions League last year just helped our appetite to win more and more, and nights like this and the feeling you have now is what drives you, and hopefully we will be celebrating again in 12 months.’
