Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has provided 18 assists in the Premier League since the beginning of last season.
He is joint second alongside Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, and only one behind Tottenham forward Harry Kane (19), for creating goals in the same period:

Considering it was widely considered that Alexander-Arnold had a poor season (by his standards) last campaign, it does emphasise how well the 23-year-old has played over the past seven months.
The fullback managed just seven assists in the Premier League throughout the 2020/21 season, and he has already surpassed that number with 11 so far this campaign.
Alexander-Arnold is, however, sidelined with a hamstring injury at the moment, but he isn’t expected to be out for more than a few weeks. Fans will, undoubtedly, be hoping that he is back in time to face Manchester City at the start of next month when they play the crucial league game at the Etihad.
