Liverpool fans have become all too accustomed to injury scares. The Reds lost scores of players last season and this campaign hasn’t exactly started well in terms of fitness issues. Liverpool fans are worried about whether Trent Alexander-Arnold will be available to face Man City.
Injuries already piling up
This season was supposed to be different.
Last term only a handful of players finished the campaign having not been out for a few weeks.
The entire centre back roster was ruled out for the duration.
Well, there is a difference this season. The centre of the defence is fine. Everywhere else is suffering.
Harvey Elliott will be out for a while due to a horror injury sustained against Leeds United.
Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino is returning from his own fitness issue.
In addition Thiago won’t be back until after the international break.
Trent Alexander-Arnold doubt to face Man City
This week Liverpool take on Porto in the Champions League.
The Reds travel to the Estádio do Dragão with fond memories of the place.
The last two games that Jürgen Klopp’s men have played there have resulted in a 9-1 aggregate victory.
Despite the confidence heading into the game there is one major area of concern: our right back didn’t travel.
Now fans are worried about whether Trent Alexander-Arnold will face Man City.
The Reds take on their title rivals on Sunday afternoon; the Scouser’s inexplicable absence from the Champions League squad has come at a concerning time.
Fans have taken to Twitter to voice their concern, though some are optimistic that he’s just being rested ahead of the big game.
