Trent Alexander-Arnold injury: The games he could miss for Liverpool

Pep Lijnders, Liverpool’s assistant manager, confirmed on Tuesday that the 25-year-old suffered the injury during the team’s 2-0 win over Arsenal in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

‘First of all, some not-that-good news, Trent hyperextended his knee during the last game,’ Lijnders said.

‘So he has a little tear in the lateral ligament of his knee and he will need time to recover. He had a scan and he will be out for a few weeks, so let’s see after that.

He will get some rest and then hopefully he can come back to where he was. Because this guy was decisive in all the games and was the one who created constantly for us from deep and gave the team a high level of flexibility. We will really miss him.’

If Alexander-Arnold were to be ruled out for the rest of the month, that would also see him miss the return leg of Liverpool’s Carabao Cup semi-final against Fulham as well as their FA Cup fourth-round tie against either Norwich City or Bristol Rovers, plus another Premier League game against Chelsea on January 31.

Just four days after Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp’s side will travel to the Emirates Stadium to face fellow Premier League title contenders Arsenal
