Trent Alexander-Arnold Ruled Out of Liverpool’s Premier League Match with Wolves
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled Trent Alexander-Arnold out of the Reds’ Premier League match with Wolves on Saturday due to a hamstring injury. The vice-captain was forced off with 20 minutes remaining of the 3-0 win over Aston Villa prior to the international break and has not recovered in time for the trip to Molineux.
Trent Alexander-Arnold’s Injury
Alexander-Arnold sustained a hamstring injury during Liverpool’s recent win over Aston Villa and was forced to withdraw from Gareth Southgate’s England squad. Klopp has confirmed that the injury is not the worst, but it has not healed in the two weeks since the match.
The manager said at his pre-match press conference: ‘He’s not available, we knew that before. It is not the worst hamstring injury but they barely heal in two weeks; this one didn’t. He is running already, we hope he can start ball work soon. We’ll see.’
With Alexander-Arnold out, Klopp will need to make changes to his lineup for the match against Wolves. The Reds have been in good form recently, winning their last three Premier League matches and Klopp will be hoping to continue this run of success.
The manager will be looking to his other players to step up and fill the gap left by Alexander-Arnold. The likes of Neco Williams, James Milner, and Curtis Jones will all be vying for a place in the starting lineup.
Liverpool’s Title Chances
Liverpool are currently third in the Premier League table, five points behind leaders Manchester City. With Alexander-Arnold out, Klopp will be hoping that his team can still challenge for the title this season.
The Reds have been in good form recently and have been able to pick up points despite missing key players such as Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez. If they can continue this form without Alexander-Arnold, then they could still have a chance of winning the title this season.
