Alan Shearer has hailed Liverpool FC defender Trent Alexander-Arnold as the “king of assists” after his display in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Brighton.

The England international started at right-back in Jurgen Klopp’s side but Alexander-Arnold made the biggest impact getting forward to support the Liverpool FC attack.

Alexander-Arnold created both of Virgil van Dijk’s goals with superb crosses to help Liverpool FC secure three points despite Lewis Dunk’s goal in the second half.

The 21-year-old has scored one goal and has made five assists in 14 games in the Premier League this season to help Liverpool FC secure a commanding lead at the top of the table.

Alexander-Arnold has started every Premier League game in the current campaign to highlight his growing importance to the Liverpool FC team under Jurgen Klopp.

Former Newcastle striker Shearer heaped praise on Alexander-Arnold after his two assists for Van Dijk.

“They’ve got the king of assists in Trent,” Shearer said on Match Of The Day.

“His ability to whip the ball in and pick someone out like Van Dijk… He is able to put it on the spot. His crossing has pace and accuracy.”

Liverpool FC are sitting 11 points clear of Manchester City after the Citizens drew 2-2 with Newcastle United at St James’ Park earlier on Saturday.

The Reds will welcome Everton to Anfield in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday night looking to extend their unbeaten run to 15 games.

Only Manchester United have managed to take points off Liverpool FC in the current campaign following a 1-1 stalemate at Old Trafford.
