Interesting news: Trent Alexander-Arnold expresses his ambitions and commitment in making history

The young defender is dedicated and committed in paving his way forward and make remarkable progress.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has given himself an ambitious goal of rewriting the record books before he hangs up his boots, and the Liverpool full-back is determined to make history.

At the age of 23, the England international has already won the Champions League and Premier League, and has made nearly 200 games for his boyhood club.

From the flanks and from set-pieces, he has become a valuable source of assists for Jurgen Klopp, with the goal of securing a place in football lore by posting high numbers in that department.

"I want to smash as many records as I can," Alexander-Arnold, who has two goals and eight assists in 13 games across all competitions this season, said to reporters. With my performances and tallies, I want to make history and go down in history.

"It's all about contributing as much as I can to the squad and making sure we win," says the player. Team awards are far more significant than personal trophies, but I prefer to set goals for myself to utilize as motivation.

"The absolute minimum is always double figures, and I've already beyond that." I simply want to contribute as much as possible. This season, I'm guessing we'll finish in the top 15 to 20 in the league.

"How about staying ahead of Andy Robertson?" So far, yes!"

Only Mohamed Salah and Paul Pogba have given their respective teams more Premier League assists in 2021-22 than Alexander-Arnold has done at Anfield.

Over the course of his career, he has risen to number 39 in the English top flight, ranking him among the best 80 players of all time.

At the moment there's still a long way to go before he reaches the top of a major chart, with Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs leading the way on 162, with Cesc Fabregas (111), Wayne Rooney (103), and Frank Lampard (102) the only other guys to achieve a century.

Steven Gerrard leads the list with 92 points, while current Reds player James Milner has 86 – six more than David Beckham did during his legendary time at Old Trafford.

In the current campaign, Alexander-Arnold is way ahead of fellow full-back Robertson in their personal rivalry on Merseyside, with the Scotland captain registering only two assists and no goals.
