Having seen the 2019/20 Premier League campaign come to an end, it is now time for award to be given to the players, who deserved them. In today’s article, Liverpool youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold has been awarded the Premier League’s Young Player of the Season.

The England international right-back was able to register four goals and further provided 13 assists in 38 league appearances in the 19/20 campaign, taking the second spot after Manchester City attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who bagged 20 assists for the campaign and are backing him to do more next season.

The 21-year-old right-back was very pivotal for the Jurgen Klopp’s side in their Premier League title win with a all-round impressive performance from the right-back position.

Being a massive help in the team, Alexader-Arnold was able to keep 12 clean sheets in his 38 appearances for the Reds this season, which was also pivotal in their title-winning campaign, ending their 30-year long wait.

The Liverpool youngster was able to beat seven rival players to the award, including Chelsea duo Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount, Aston Villa star Jack Grealish, Sheffield United Dean Henderson, and Manchester United trio Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.

The English right-back was also named in the shortlist for the Premier League Player of the Year award, but his chances of winning that award are extremely low considering he will be competing against his teammates, Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane, Manchester City star De Bruyne, Leicester City Jamie Vardy, Southampton Danny Ings, and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, for the award.

Brazil and AC Milan legend Cafu has deemed Alexander-Arnold to become one of the world’s best players shortly, as he said on FIFA’s website via Goal: “He’s a sensational player, a rare talent.

“If he keeps playing the way he has been he will be regarded as one of the best players in the world. He has the potential to win [The Best FIFA Men’s Player] award.

“He’s technically brilliant, he has so much quality. He has a Brazilian style of play. I love watching him play. And playing in such a great team will help him grow.”

Ever since graduating from the Liverpool academy to Jurgen Klopp’s first team in 2016/17, the England international has register 134 appearances in all competitions for the club. Helping them lift the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, Club World Cup, and the Premier League and he might be lifting more trophies as online casinos for real money are putting interesting odds on him for more.

Liverpool will have another chance in adding another trophy to their cabinet as they will be facing off Arsenal for the Community Shield on the 29th of August.
