Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold says he is now ready after the injury he suffered against Austria.

"

fully pain-free. I've been doing a lot of rehab when we were off over the summer with the physios and the medical staff, which was good for me,"

the England international told Liverpool's website.

"I feel fit, I feel healthy and I'm back in full training now, so it's good. It's good for me. I've done quite a few sessions with the lads now, I feel fit enough to play.

"But the decision comes from the manager, the staff and obviously the medical staff, they need to talk and see if it's worth the risk.

"If not, there's a game on Friday as well, so whether it's a case of a few minutes on Tuesday and play a bit more on Friday, ease me in like that, who knows? Either way, I'll be ready to play."

Virgil van Dijk

,

Joe Gomez

and

Joel Matip

are also on the verge of returning to fitness. It seems that

Alexander-Arnold

is most happy with Van Dijk's return to the team.

"

In and around the team, he's such a big difference for us,"

said Alexander-Arnold.

"Amazing guy, amazing player. But the impact he has on us is huge, he knows that himself and knows the role he needs to play within the team, as a leader and as one of the captains.

"He's a big part of the team and everyone is really pleased to see him back training and in and around the team."
