Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold insists that there is still plenty of room for him to improve despite establishing himself as one of the world's best full-backs.

Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has insisted that he still has a lot of room for improvement and does not consider himself a "really good footballer".

The 21-year-old is considered by many to be the best right-back in the world at the moment, having established himself as a key member of the Liverpool side which won the Champions League last year and is on course for the Premier League title this term.

Alexander-Arnold has even been credited with redefining his position in some quarters, but the England international believes that there is still a lot more to come from him.

"I don't think I ever knew that I'd be a really good footballer. I wouldn't think now that I'm a really good footballer," he told GQ.

"I'd say I haven't reached full potential at all. I'm not where I need to be and where I can be. So there's no point putting a label on it, in my mind. I still have a lot of improvement to do. Growing up, there were always indications of it, but, for me, it was just about playing every game.

"I wanted to win every game. It was never me thinking, 'I'm put on the planet and I have to be a footballer,' it was more just every day going to train and wanting to win and wanting to be as competitive as possible."

Alexander-Arnold has provided 12 Premier League assists this season, already equalling the single-season record for a defender which he set last term.
