Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp refuses to believe Trent Alexander-Arnold as injury fear raised

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Trent Alexander-Arnold will need to undergo a scan to confirm the extent of the injury he picked up in their 3-0 win over Aston Villa. Liverpool were at their scintillating best at home to Aston Villa on Sunday with Dominik Szoboszlai and Mohamed Salah getting on the scoresheet.

Alexander-Arnold helped pull the strings from his more central position, including an exquisite 60-yard pass over the top of Villa’s defence for Liverpool’s second goal. He stepped up to the occasion wearing the captain’s armband in Virgil van Dijk’s absence.

But his impressive display was cut short midway through the second half as he went down clutching his leg. The 24-year-old appeared to know immediately that he wouldn’t be able to continue as he received medical treatment.

And he was visibly uncomfortable as he hobbled off the pitch, raising concerns of a potential injury blow. Klopp stated after the game that Alexander-Arnold doesn’t feel the injury is “too serious”.

However, the Liverpool boss doesn’t want to commit to any good news until a scan is done.
