Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has stated that it always means a bit more to claim an award which is determined by the fans.
Alexander-Arnold was huge for the Reds in December, which saw him awarded Liverpool’s Player of the Month.
It was Liverpool’s busiest period of the 2019-20 season, as the Reds had to deal with the Premier League, Champions League, Carabao Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Alexander-Arnold was immense in the games he played, as he registered four assists and one goal within the month. He also played a huge part in Liverpool claiming the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar.
Alexander-Arnold stated that it meant a lot to him in regards to being named as Liverpool’s Player of the Month for December.
Alexander-Arnold told Liverpoolfc.com: “It’s a massive award for me coming from the fans, so it means a lot. It was a good month for the club as a whole; we obviously won a trophy and had some good results in the league.
“I’m really proud and hopefully we’ll be able to keep up the good form.”
There is no denying Alexander-Arnold deserved this award. He has been huge for the Reds. The 21-year-old has been running games from right-back, which is quite an achievement when you reflect on it.
It is not a position where you can normally dominate a game from, but he has shown that it is possible.
The performance that stood out for us in December was when Alexander-Arnold registered two assists and one goal against Leicester City on Boxing Day.
