Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has hailed Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne as the best midfielder in the world.

The Belgian has been in scintillating form for his club this season and already provided nine assists from his opening 14 Premier League matches before the World Cup break. 

Speaking to talkSPORT, Alexander-Arnold said: “Best midfielder in the world, hands down. He constantly keeps trying to sneak into my top three Premier League midfielders ever. 

“I’ve never seen someone be able to create like he does. He will go down as one of the best midfielders in Premier League history, for me.”
