Liverpool announce Trent Alexander-Arnold injury and is set for period on sidelines

Liverpool have suffered an injury blow on the eve of their Carabao Cup semi-final with Trent Alexander-Arnold picking up a knee injury.

The Reds will be without the full-back for the clash with Fulham. Liverpool medical staff are still waiting to see the full extent of the injury but he’s definitely out of the cup game

Jurgen Klopp’s side face Bournemouth on January 20 before the second leg of their League Cup semi final four days later.

They’ve then got an FA Cup fourth round clash with Norwich or Bristol Rovers before they return to Premier League action against Chelsea at the end of the month.

Pep Lijnders said: “First of all, some not-that-good news, Trent hyperextended his knee during the last game.

“So he has a little tear in the lateral ligament of his knee and he will need time to recover. He had a scan and he will be out for a few weeks, so let’s see after that.

“He will get some rest and then hopefully he can come back to where he was. Because this guy was decisive in all the games and was the one who created constantly for us from deep and gave the team a high level of flexibility. We will really miss him.”
