TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD added another stunning assist to his remarkable tally in Liverpool's win over Burnley.
The England right-back has now set up 33 goals since the start of the 2018-19 season – only ONE fewer than Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.
Alexander-Arnold laid on an exquisite pass that saw Sadio Mane become the highest-scoring African in Premier League history
The duo helped the Reds beat the Clarets 2-0 with Sean Dyche's losing their second match of the season.
Alexander-Arnold ace – who has made 131 top-flight appearances for the Reds since 2016 – now has as many Premier League assists as Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane.
And OptaJoe say nine of them have been for team-mate Mane.
This is four more than for any other of Jurgen Klopp's players.

The full-back delivered a deft pass to the Senegal ace in the 69th minute with Mane thumping in a powerful low shot for the Merseyside giants’ second goal.
That effort followed Diogo Jota’s headed opener for Jurgen’s Klopp side close to the twenty-minute mark.
It also led to Mane becoming only the fifth Liverpool star to score more than 50 Anfield goals for the club in the Premier League, after Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen and team-mate Mo Salah.
The result for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who play Chelsea at Anfield next, saw them move to the top of the table.
And the performance of Alexander-Arnold and his team-mates had the Anfield crowd rocking during the club’s first match at home this term.
It was the first time in 18 months – and since winning the title – that the team had played at a packed home stadium with fans returning following the easing of Covid restrictions.
