The Reds struggled to find consistency throughout 2022/23, causing them to fall out of the Champions League places for the first time in seven years.
Jurgen Klopps side did, however, embark upon a resurgent run towards the end of the campaign, with Alexander-Arnolds switch into a hybrid position proving to be a catalyst.
The No. 66 became an inverted full-back and operated largely from the middle of the pitch from April onwards, with Liverpool winning seven straight games in an unlikely late push for a top-four spot.
While that quest proved ultimately unsuccessful, it marked the beginning of an impressive run which has seen the Reds win 17 of their last 25 league games, losing only one a defeat clouded by controversy at Tottenham.
It means that Klopps side sit top of the form table since the tactical tweak, as shown by @BassTunedToRed on Twitter.
