Injury update on Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool’s full back Trent Alexander-Arnold was sidelined with an injury which forced him out of the game against Manchester City on Sunday’s Premier league clash.

He was replaced by James Milner in 63rd minute of the game after limping with a injury during his run from the right side of the pitch.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp stated that the 22 years old English star will be out of the International competition where England faces Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland during November 11-19 international break.

The Liverpool manager said, “Trent will be out for England, that is clear.

“What he has, we don’t know, but he cannot play for England. He will not be the last and not the only one who Gareth [Southgate] will miss for this international break.

“He will have a scan tomorrow and then we will see.”

Although the nature of the injury is unknown and the exact impact remains in question, it looks certain that the English international will miss the upcoming duties for his country.
