Liverpool are in the midst of an injury crisis. We have been decimated at the back but thankfully we can call upon our wealth of young talent. Jürgen Klopp is sure to turn to the academy graduates during this difficult time, one man in particular is certain to be in contention for our next game. Fans have been raving over Neco Williams after his Wales display.
Trent Alexander-Arnold rarely gets injured. The Scouser is pretty reliable fitness wise, we can’t recall any lengthy spells out since he burst onto the scene.
However, he is currently sidelined with a muscle problem picked up during the 1-1 draw with Man Ciy.
After an hour of the game, the right back pulled up with a calf injury, forcing him to be replaced by James Milner at the Etihad.
We learned after the game that the Scouser was to miss four weeks with the injury.
