In fact, he's one of only three defenders in Premier League history to have registered more than 50 assists in the competition, with Jordan Henderson covering his attacking runs for years on that right side.

Liverpool won the Premier League and the Champions League with Alexander-Arnold as a creative right-back but now aged 25, he's continued to evolve throughout Klopp's tenure.

As the Scouse defender has become famous for his value on the ball, the calls for him to become a full-time midfielder have got louder and louder.

"When I see him, he plays full-back as a midfield player," said ex-Reds boss Brendan Rodgers in 2019.

It was the Dutchman's idea to transform Alexander-Arnold into an inverted full-back who would become a situational midfielder when Liverpool had possession of the ball under control.

The strategic switch had a massive impact on the form of the team, with Klopp's men proceeding to go unbeaten for the remainder of the season.

The same ploy has been installed this term, with Alexander-Arnold dovetailing between his role as a right-back and as a midfielder depending on the location of the ball.

Alexander-Arnold said as much himself in a recent interview with Sky Sports.

"It creates a lot more opportunities and options for me on the ball," he said.

His customary right-back role is very complex and does involve him becoming a midfielder when Liverpool have possession secured, but the England international is almost becoming too good to occupy that spot.
