Another massive injury blow for Liverpool, key player ruled out for long term

Liverpool have refused to allow lose to Wolverhampton in the FA Cup kill their steam. The Reds snatched a slim 1-nil victory over the Seagulls Brighton on to maintain a four-point lead over Manchester City.

But Klopp will be disappointed over the recent injury that has knock out defender Trent Alexander-Arnold out of play.

The defender looked set for a return back to Premier League action after he was given the clear to play in the clash against Brighton.

Alexander-Arnold hinted struggling tendencies on the pitch, delivering in a belabored fashion.

The 20-year-old had just made a comeback from a foot injury, and though he lasted through the entire game at the Amex Stadium, he played in pain.

Recent reports milling from the Times have claimed that that right-back has suffered another blow to his leg. He experienced a “tweak to his ligament” according to the publication, and will be kept sidelined for one month.

This should put a dent in Reds title hopes, but with James Milner back in action, the England veteran player could substitute as right-back for now, until Alexander-Arnold’s return.

Meanwhile, Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are still on the sidelines, as Joel Matip continues to make decent recovery.
