Liverpool Injury Update: Jurgen Klopp Confirms Good and Bad News Ahead of Wolves Trip
Liverpool had two defensive injuries to concerns themselves with over the break, and Jurgen Klopp delivered good and bad news over Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ibrahima Konate injuries for the trip to Wolves.
Trent Alexander-Arnold Injury Update
Not long after the manager conceded Liverpool needed ‘luck’ when it came to injuries at the back, he was hit with issues for Konate and Alexander-Arnold. When you throw Virgil van Dijk‘s suspension into the mix, it leaves quite a few a gaps to fill, and that includes at right-back, as he confirmed his No. 66 is not available for the trip to Wolves.
“No concern [about his injury], he is not available,” Klopp told reporters. “We knew that before. He didn’t train with the team once yet, will take a little bit. Not the worst hamstring injury you can have, but it is a hamstring injury. They barely heal in two weeks and this one didn’t. He’s running already, but we hope he can start start ball work early next week, but we will see.”
Alexander-Arnold was given a two-week timeframe for his recovery after his injury against Aston Villa, and took part in an individual session on Thursday.
