Liverpool right-back picks up prize for first time in his career after memorable December

Trent Alexander-Arnold has won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award for December 2019.

The Liverpool defender earns his first Premier League monthly award after producing a goal, three assists and three clean sheets in a flawless end to the year.

"It's a proud moment," Alexander-Arnold said. "We've had a good month as a team.

"There were many players that were up for it so it's an honour to be the one that won it."

The right-back played all five matches as the leaders beat EvertonAFC Bournemouth, Watford, Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers to go 13 points clear.

He also helped the Reds lift the FIFA Club World Cup for the first time, but perhaps his best performance came at second-placed Leicester, against whom he scored once and set up two goals in a 4-0 victory.
