Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has made seven more chances than any other player in the Premier League this season, according to official figures.
The 22-year-old has created 20 goalscoring opportunities so far, with teammate Mo Salah and Manchester City’s Jack Grealish on 13.
After the Premier League’s official Twitter account released the stats this morning, Liverpool fans were hailing the ability of Alexander-Arnold:
TAA is on a different level.

Surprisingly, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba hasn’t made the list, despite providing seven assists in just four games, which suggests that players have simply been more clinical in front of goal when they have received a pass from him.
Alexander-Arnold has set up chances for the likes of Sadio Mane who, for some reason, has been extremely profligate, despite having scored twice in the Premier League this campaign.
You would have to think that with his chance creations stats, though, Alexander-Arnold will be getting, at least, double figures for assists over the course of the season.
