Liverpool have been having a torrid time with injuries this season. The Reds have seen a string of first team stars ruled out yet they’ve still managed and are just a point off the top of the table. This weekend saw yet another knock to Jürgen Klopp’s squad. Liverpool have have reacted on Twitter to the Trent Alexander-Arnold injury.
Liverpool v Man City stalemate
This weekend saw the first episode of this series of Jürgen Klopp v Pep Guardiola.
The two greatest managers in the world faced off at the Etihad for the first title decider of the season.
The first half was electric, Jürgen Klopp’s front four devastating the hosts on occasion, scoring an early pen that was thoroughly deserved.
Man City equalised before halftime, Gabriel Jesus smartly (accidentally) turning Trent before firing past Alisson.
The second half was a dull affair as both sides settled for a point.
After an hour Trent Alexander-Arnold pulled up lame with an injury.
The Scouser in our team fell to the ground with a calf problem after a sprint into a 50/50.
The physios pretty much immediately realised that the right back wouldn’t be able to continue.
James Milner was brought on to fill in at full back, providing experience and defensive solidity.
We don’t know the extent of the injury yet, we’re hoping it’s just a tweak given that there wasn’t much rolling around and crying. Fingers crossed he’ll be back after the international break.
Liverpool fans react to Alexander-Arnold injury
Klopp may be cursed, he has to rotate.
We could be cursed this season, klopp must rotate every game to avoid more injuries.

He may finally get the rest he deserves.
Might be a blessing in disguise if the injury is short term and he can actually get a rest instead. 🤞

the lad deserves a rest. being withdrawn is best for him and will give him time to recover and get match fit
