Liverpool dealt injury blow, key star ruled out for four weeks

Jurgen Klopp reaction, after Liverpool won Premier League

Liverpool have been dealt another major injury blow with right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold ruled out for four weeks with a calf injury.

The young defender had to be taken off against Manchester City after he picked up an injury and it will be interesting to see how the Reds cope with his absence.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is one of the best fullbacks in world football and he is one of Liverpool’s main source of creativity.

The Reds have the option to field the likes of Williams, Milner or Henderson as their right back in the coming weeks.

Jurgen Klopp is already dealing with the absence of Virgil van Dijk and the loss of Trent Alexander-Arnold will further weaken his defence.

It will be interesting to see if Fabinho can return to action after the international break. The Brazilian is an excellent player who can play in defence and he has played as a right-back earlier in his career as well.

The Reds will be hoping that Trent Alexander-Arnold can return to action soon and the timing of the international break could not have been better.

The defender will have the time to recover over the next two weeks and then he is expected to miss three or four games.

Liverpool will need their key players in order to defend their Premier League title but their current injury crisis has made things really difficult for Klopp.
