Alexander-Arnold to miss “weeks” due to injury - Klopp

Fri 18 March 2022 | 14:44

The 23-year-old is not going to be available for the upcoming friendlies as he sustained a hamstring injury in the clash against the Gunners.

Jurgen Klopp

has confirmed that

Trent Alexander-Arnold

will be sidelined for a couple of weeks as he sustained a hamstring injury, missing the crucial games in the

Premier League

while also withdrawing from the England squad.

The England international picked up the injury when

Liverpool

won

Arsenal

2-0 and he is now unavailable for both club and country.

He will miss the friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast, while also watching the FA Cup quarter-final battle against Nottingham Forest from afar.

When quizzed to provide an update on the player before their game, the Reds Boss said:

“Trent is out with a hamstring, he will not be part of England as well. We will see how long that takes. We have to wait.”

Asked if the star would miss a few weeks, the German tactician added:

“Yeah.

“We will see how long it will take but, of course, to replace Trent is difficult but possible. We always did it.

“We have Joe [Gomez]. Theoretically we can change the system as well. These kinds of things. So we have a couple of options, but you are right he is very influential.

“If you look in the past when Milly [James Milner] had to step in he did incredibly well. Incredibly well. He just has to be available and then that is fine. I don’t know if he will for Sunday. Maybe we have a very young solution as well.

“The way he [Alexander-Arnold] plays, I don't know any player who plays like Trent in the world. So it will be difficult to find a one versus one replacement.”

Although Milner can replace Alexander-Arnold, he has been dealing with illness of late recently.

It remains to be seen whether he will be asked to play against Forest or other games.
