Trent Alexander-Arnold says he is still looking to ‘push on’ after already equalling his own record for most assists by a defender in a single Premier League season.
The Liverpool star produced two more assists during the club’s 3-2 victory over West Ham on Monday night, taking his tally to 12 for the season with only Manchester City‘s Kevin De Bruyne having registered more (16).
Having already become the first defender in Premier League history to reach double figures for assists in two separate campaigns, Alexander-Arnold’s latest performance also saw him match the record for most in a single campaign by a defender – a record the 21-year-old set himself only last season.
Alexander-Arnold admits he is pleased with his output, but is striving to better both himself and his assist record over the final months of the Premier League campaign.
BIG comeback ?

“I’m happy to help the team as much as possible,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“That was my aim going into the season – to get over 10 again. And as the season has gone on, it’s been about trying to push the limits and try to break as many records as I can, try to push myself as far as I can, try to help the team as much as possible and get assists, goals and contributions.
“Obviously clean sheets first and foremost, but going forward I’ve tried to get as many assists as possible.
“I’ve equalled that record and now I’ll look to push on and try to break it.”
