Liverpool suffer another injury blow with Trent Alexander-Arnold the latest addition to their list and is expected to be out for the next four weeks.
The England defender was forced off during his side’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad and underwent a scan at Merseyside on Monday, having already been ruled out of England’s international fixtures.
The prognosis is that he will now miss the Premier League games against Leicester City who are now top of the table, Brighton and Wolves as well as Champions League fixtures against Atalanta and Ajax both of which are at Anfield.
Liverpool this season have been stricken with injury having already lost Virgil van Dijk and Thiago with injury with Fabinho adding to the early list.
Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are advocating for the five substitutes rule to be implemented in the Premier League due to the pressure on the fixtures.
