The Scout says Liverpool right-back is on course to finish 2019/20 as a record-breaker in FPL

The Scout highlights players for Fantasy Premier League managers to target with their unlimited transfers before the Gameweek 30+ deadline.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.8m

The Liverpool right-back's potential at both ends of the pitch makes him the standout option for FPL managers in defence.

Alexander-Arnold has combined two goals and 14 assists with 11 clean sheets this season.

He has produced attacking or defensive returns in 19 of his 28 starts.

Record return

That has helped him total 166 points, which is 25 points ahead of any other defender in the game.

Alexander-Arnold still has nine matches remaining to surpass the points record for a defender in FPL.

That was set by his team-mate Andrew Robertson (£7.0m), who claimed 213 points in the previous campaign.

Shooter and creator

The underlying statistics highlight Alexander-Arnold's strong attacking potential.

His 36 shots rank second to the 38 of Sheffield United's John Lundstram (£4.9m) among FPL defenders.

Meanwhile, Alexander-Arnold's 75 chances created are bettered only by the 96 of Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) among all players.

Combined with his potential for clean sheets, Alexander-Arnold can extend his run of returns and finish the season in record-breaking fashion.
