Trent Alexander-Arnold has been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
The award, given to the best player aged 23 or under in English football, has been won by some rather special players in its time.
Such Liverpool legends as Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, and Ian Rush have won the award in years previous, so Alexander-Arnold would be in some rather stunning company should he win.
The 20-year-old has been shortlisted alongside Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, Bernardo Silva, Declan Rice, and David Brooks.
The competition will be stiff, but Alexander-Arnold will feel good about his chances.

Alexander-Arnold has also gained recognition on an international level for his efforts, and has been increasingly involved in Gareth Southgate’s plans with the England team.

Trent bagged his first Liverpool goal in the Champions League qualification round in August 2017, thundering home a free kick against Hoffenheim. It wasn’t the last free kick he’d score, either!
At the latter end of that European campaign, Trent Alexander-Arnold found himself standing in front of the travelling Kop in Rome, leading the chants. The local lad.
