Trent Alexander-Arnold impresses with a ridiculous pass during Liverpool vs Sheffield United on Thursday night in the Premier League.
Trent Alexander-Arnold left fans stunned last night with an incredible pass near Liverpool’s box during their match against Sheffield United in the Premier League. Had he fluffed it, the Blades would have easily had a chance of scoring.
The 21-year old however, made no mistake as he directed the ball towards Andrew Robertson with the outside of his right boot. The ball amazingly went around the Sheffield player and comfortably found his fullback partner.

To even try that pass in a precarious position and pull it off goes to show much confidence he has in his abilities.
Alexander-Arnold currently 10 assists in 29 appearances this season and is only behind Kevin De Bruyne in the Premier League in terms of assists. While he did not add to his tally in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United last night, the pass alone made up for it.
After the match, he revealed that both Robertson and him are aiming to change the way the position of fullbacks is seen in the game and they do so with a little friendly competition among themselves to see who can register the most assists.
“That is the way we are, we are competitive within ourselves,” he told BT Sport after Thursday’s win.
“We have a competition to see who can get the most assists and it pushes ourselves.
“At the end of the season, one gets the bragging rights and one doesn’t. He can nick two or three assists in any given game.”
“As a pair, we want to change the way the position was previously thought about,” he added.
“There was the famous saying, ‘Nobody wants to grow up to be a Gary Neville’.
“But we want to change that and bring a different way of thinking of a full-back.”
If the pair continue playing the way they have, there is no reason why they won’t be successful in changing that mindset.
