Prior to his 20th birthday, Trent Alexander-Arnold already exceeded some of the largest names in the history of Liverpool.
By the end of her teenage years, the rear back had made 54 appearances, which was 10 more than Steven Gerrard made for the same age Reds.
Jamie Carragher, the legendary defender who represented the club 737 times, played 15 times before he turned 20 and the Reds icon has pulled Alexander-Arnold, born in West Derby, to highlight his own appearance figures in the head draw – a total that appears to sit second in the club's all-time list.
"Trent will be a Liverpool player for a long time," said Carragher at the ECHO earlier this year. "I really believe that it could make more appearances to the club than I did."
The incredible incremental Alexander-Arnold of young, hopeful for the first team of the first team has been well documented.
He made his second first League in January 2017 and has gone on to play in the Champions League final and is typical for the end of the World Cup in England.
Such a meteoric increase has won a competition from almost every corner and Lee Peltier, the defender of Cardiff City, was supporting his fellow Sgouser for a bit later.
Trent Alexander-Arnold on his dream of becoming Liverpool captain …
Former protector of Reds was following a similar career path, cutting into the first team as a backup under Rafa Benitez back in 2007, and he knows how hard it is to succeed in Anfield as a calm area.
"People do not realize, it's only 19 and the games it has played in and the pressures it has been under, and it has performed in every game," said Peltier in September. "That's something special and unique that you do not really come in many children.
"It's been in the World Cup now and has enough ability and potential. It has taken that position alone. It's very young and it will be excited, but it has started Great for Liverpool career.
"Clearly, whoever has been backed up has made the right choice because it is a great backbone. It could be one of the best in the world, never thinking in England if he continues to move on and do what he does. "
Alexander-Arnold had a hard check in Arsenal last week as Liverpool won a 1-1 win before lasting hard nights with the rest of his fellow members in March 2-0 against Red Star Belgrade.
Alexander-Arnold can easily forget to play football under 23 less than two years ago, and a sensible perspective of Liverpool's fanbase, as maybe, may be satisfied.
Something is not right in Liverpool – but there is one change that can ban a common problem
Alexander-Arnold is the most exciting young local to join the first team in Liverpool with regularity since Gerrard did so 20 years ago.
Such a shelter comes with its own disadvantages for a young player, rarely given them the opportunity to stay away from a day – especially with a club with an ambitious ambition such as Liverpool.
"What I should say about local players is everyone who likes the club to see (come along)," said Carragher at Sports Night Football & # 39; last week
"I believe that you get the benefit of uncertainty earlier on (by fans) and they keep with you if things do not go well, but there is time when it's become difficult.
"And what would I say, starting your career in one of the largest clubs in the world and looking at my job … I say the best center I played with Sami Hyypia – and by This is Virgil van Dijk, one of the best in the world – that was my job.

"Sami Hyypia, when he came, was 26. Nobody at the age of 18 saw his difficult moments, quickly and low. Van Dijk was in the Netherlands or Scotland with Celtic. They may not have been ready for Liverpool aged 18 or 19.
"If they had come through the ranks in Liverpool, I do not say they would not have been good enough, but they may not be right at that time and they're moving on.
"So when you come into a local club, the eyes of the world all see that your growing period, your mistakes, your good days and some are bad and then reach 26 or 27 when you will go ahead ".
Alexander-Arnold must grow up quickly under that brightness. It does not fit it after a real pump in the way is purposeful to the player or club.
