Paul Robinson was blown away by how many Premier League assists Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has already racked up.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England No.1 shared it was “remarkable” how many assists Alexander-Arnold had in comparison with Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.
The 21-year-old Reds full-back only needs 37 assists in his next 430 games to equal Scholes’ record after already racking up 18 assists in his career.
Robinson admitted Alexander-Arnold did have an easier time than most racking up assists due to regularly playing with quality players such as Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah.
When asked about Alexander-Arnold’s Premier League assist stats compared to Scholes, Robinson told Football Insider: “For his age, to have a stat like that is outstanding.
“He is playing in a very good team, and it’s alright getting into positions to put balls into the box, but you look at the quality he is providing.
“He’s putting free-kicks on Van Dijk’s head, Salah, Mane, Firmino, the goals are coming because of the quality of the ball, but also because of the quality on the end of them.
“For a full-back to have a record like that, it’s remarkable.”
The Reds right-back already has 69 Premier League appearances under his belt despite still only being 21-years-old and has featured a total of 105 times for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Alexander-Arnold has spent his whole career with the Reds, rising through the youth ranks to feature for the club, and is contracted to stay at Anfield until 2024.
