Liverpool handed injury boost ahead of Watford clash

By | October 14, 2021

Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold will reportedly be in contention to face Claudio Ranieri’s Watford this weekend.

The England star was prevented from linking up with Gareth Southgate’s roster for October’s World Cup qualifiers because of a groin injury the player suffered last month.

Alexander-Arnold sat out matches against Manchester City and Porto before the international break, with the all-around midfielder James Milner deputising at right-back.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp was confident that Trent would be fit to return after the aforementioned break, and a British daily newspaper The Telegraph states that he has now fully recovered and will be available for selection this weekend.

The good news for the German tactician comes after he was suffered a blow on the attacking front with forward Diogo Jota, who has been sent home early from the Portugal camp because of a muscular issue.

Trent already boasts three assists from six matches in all tournaments this season as the Reds sit second in the Premier League table.
