GW38 Ones to watch: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Scout says Liverpool full-back can rival Salah and Mane for GW38 captaincy

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 38 of Fantasy Premier League.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £5.7m

The Liverpool right-back welcomes Wolverhampton Wanderers to Anfield on the back of some superb recent displays.

Alexander-Arnold has four assists and two clean sheets in his last three Gameweek appearances.

And that all-round potential helped him claim double-figure hauls against Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United over those fixtures.

Creative threat

The underlying statistics further highlight Alexander-Arnold’s attacking ability.

His total of 10 chances created in the last four Gameweeks is joint-top with Lucas Digne (£5.4m) among FPL defenders.

It also matches the tally of his team-mate Mohamed Salah (£13.3m), making the pair Liverpool’s most creative players.

Set-piece specialist

Alexander-Arnold’s delivery from free-kicks and corners is a major weapon for the Merseysiders.

The Reds have scored 22 goals from set-plays this season, more than any other side.

This was in evidence in their win over Barcelona on Tuesday evening.

Alexander-Arnold’s quick thinking from a corner allowed Divock Origi (£5.0m) to seal a 4-0 win and clinch a place in the UEFA Champions League final for Liverpool.

Title tilt

Jurgen Klopp’s side will again go on the attack against Wolves in their bid to clinch the title.

Although Salah and Sadio Mane (£10.2m) are likely to be the main armband picks, Alexander-Arnold should not be ignored.

The young right-back has produced five double-figure hauls at Anfield this season, the same number as Salah and Mane.

That shows his potential as a big source of points for Sunday’s finale.
