New season, same brilliant deliveries from Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Despite being a right-back, the Reds star set up an unbelievable 15 goals in all competitions last season - and he's already got one assist for the 2019-20 campaign.

Liverpool kicked off their Premier League campaign with a comfortable 4-1 win over newly-promoted Norwich City at Anfield last night.

It was the fourth goal on 42 minutes that killed any slim chance Norwich had of a comeback, and it came when Divock Origi nodded home from inside the box.

 

But the beautifully-floated ball in from Alexander-Arnold is what had Liverpool fans drooling - and Gary Lineker is no different.

Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk had scored Liverpool's second and third goals after an OG from Grant Hanley inside the opening seven minutes.

Teemu Pukki pulled one back for the Canaries midway through the second half, but it was only ever going to be a consolation for Norwich.
