Liverpool news: Trent Alexander-Arnold produces stunning cross-field pass vs Midtjylland


Trent Alexander-Arnold was in scintillating form during Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Midtjylland on Tuesday evening.

The attacking right-back provided the assist for Diogo Jota to break the deadlock (and score the Reds’ 10,000th goal) early in the second half.

He also provided the pass which led to Mohamed Salah’s penalty in stoppage time.

This was a Man of the Match display from the 22-year-old, who has found his best form recently following a surprisingly shaky start to the current campaign.

Aside from the two assists (his pass for Salah basically counts as an unofficial assist) Alexander-Arnold also amazed fans with an exquisite cross-field volleyed pass in the second half.


When Xherdan Shaqiri passed the throw-in back to Alexander-Arnold, the full-back reacted by playing a gorgeous volleyed pass into Andy Robertson’s path.

Watch it here (and turn up the volume to hear the sound of the pass, which makes it that bit sweeter)…


Here’s some of the best reaction to Alexander-Arnold’s pass from Liverpool fans…

This pass was the cherry on top of a wonderful individual performance.

Here are some of his best stats from the game...

However, this might not even be the best cross-field pass the England international has produced in 2020.

Back in January, another magnificent Alexander-Arnold cross-field pass went viral on social media.

Again picking out Robertson, Alexander-Arnold bent a pass around a Sheffield United player with the outside his right foot, straight into the path of Liverpool’s left-back.


With the possible exception of Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, is there a better passer in the Premier League right now?
