Key blow for Liverpool as Trent Alexander-Arnold faces weeks out with knee injury

Posted : 09 January 2024

right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold will be sidelined for "a few weeks" due to a knee injury sustained during the FA Cup third-round victory over Arsenal. Assistant manager Pep Lijnders revealed that Alexander-Arnold hyperextended his knee, causing a tear in the lateral ligament.


This setback will force Liverpool to find new dynamics without the influential player, who has been a key contributor in creating opportunities for the team. The injury means Alexander-Arnold will miss crucial fixtures, including the Carabao Cup semi-final against Fulham and a Premier League clash with Bournemouth.


Lijnders expressed the significance of Alexander-Arnold's absence, emphasizing his role in providing flexibility and creativity for the team. Liverpool will face challenges in adapting their game without the vice-captain, who has been instrumental in both defensive and offensive aspects.


The team is already coping with the absence of Mohamed Salah and Wataru Endo, representing Egypt and Japan, respectively, in international competitions. Despite the setbacks, Liverpool remains atop the Premier League standings and has progressed to the Europa League knockout stages.


While Alexander-Arnold's injury is a blow for Liverpool, there is some positive news on the injury front. Captain Virgil van Dijk is set to return to face Fulham after recovering from illness. Left-backs Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas are expected to resume training later in the month as they continue their recovery from shoulder injuries.


However, midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai remains sidelined with a hamstring problem. Liverpool faces a challenging schedule in the coming weeks, including FA Cup and Premier League fixtures, as they aim to maintain their position at the top of the league table.
