Alexander-Arnold played in every single Premier League game as Klopp’s side registered 99 points as they romped to the top-flight title with relative ease.  

The Englishman contributed four goals and a whopping 13 assists despite playing on the right-hand side of the Liverpool defence. He finished second in the assists charts for the 2019-20 campaign to Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, who laid on 20. 

His contributions meant the Merseyside club lifted their first ever Premier League trophy and their first top-flight success in 30 years.
