Trent Alexander-Arnold is Liverpool’s assists king – and he emphasised his creative threat when setting up Diogo Jota for an early equaliser at Manchester City on Sunday.
The attacking right-back played Andy Robertson’s cross back to striker Jota, who beat Ederson to cancel out Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected fifth-minute strike.
The 13th-minute leveller meant Alexander-Arnold has now had an assist for a Liverpool goal against all 19 of their current Premier League rivals.
He is the only player to have completed a full set of assists against the current group of teams in the English top flight, Opta said.
It was his 12th assist of the Premier League season, which is a league high, and meant he was one short of matching his best tally in the competition (13 in 2019-20).
City restored their lead by half-time, with Gabriel Jesus putting the home side 2-1 in front at the Etihad Stadium.
