Is Trent Alexander-Arnold fit to play for Liverpool this weekend? England star due to take captaincy in Virgil van Dijk’s absence


Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of vice-captain Trent Alexander-Arnold for their clash against Wolves this weekend.

The Reds defender has been nursing a hamstring injury during the international break that forced him to withdraw from England duty.

Alexander-Arnold sustained the issue during the 3-0 win over Aston Villa and went straight down the tunnel after limping off.

Speaking on the injury, Jurgen Klopp said: “I asked him and he said it’s (his) hamstring.

“Not too serious is his opinion, but we obviously have to wait for the scans. Then we will know more.”

Alexander-Arnold has since undergone the scan that ruled him out of England’s 1-1 draw with Ukraine, as well as their friendly with Scotland.

Is Alexander-Arnold fit to play for Liverpool this weekend?

The 24-year-old is expected to pass a late fitness test to be included in Liverpool’s away trip at Molineux, live on talkSPORT.

Alexander-Arnold’s scan showed that his hamstring injury was minor and he was set to be sidelined for up to two weeks.

Klopp may have opted against risking the right-back in ordinary circumstances but a lack of defensive cover could prove pivotal.

He is already without captain Virgil van Dijk due to suspension, with Alexander-Arnold due to take over the armband once again.

Joe Gomez would usually be tasked with deputising at right-back, but the England defender is already being deployed at the heart of the defence with Ibrahima Konate still nursing a knock.

If Alexander-Arnold remains sidelined then Conor Bradley could make his Premier League debut following his loan at Bolton last term.
