Trent Alexander-Arnold fitness hint as new face joins Liverpool training

Trent Alexander-Arnold appears to be closing on his return from injury, but the Liverpool right-back was not part of Thursday’s 26-man training squad.

Alexander-Arnold picked up a hamstring injury late into the 3-0 win over Aston Villa on September 3, ruling him out of England duty.

The 24-year-old had been given a two-week timeframe for his recovery, leading to doubts over his inclusion for the trip to Wolves on Saturday.

That appeared to have been confirmed early on Thursday, with Alexander-Arnold part of the group to return to the AXA Training Centre but not involved in outdoor training.

But it has since emerged that, while he was not among the 26 players to train, the No. 66 was pictured outside wearing his boots.

In full gear, that would suggest Alexander-Arnold has been cleared for light training, with Jurgen Klopp expected to give an update on his fitness during a press conference at 12.15pm on Friday.

Liverpool granted a day off for their four South American internationals, with Alisson, Alexis Mac Allister, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez all missing the session after long journeys back to Merseyside.

They are likely to rejoin the group on Friday and, Alisson aside, could be in line for places on the bench at Molineux, rather than as starters.
