Liverpool have been hit with their latest cruel injury blow, with Trent Alexander-Arnold facing another spell on the sidelines after aggravating an existing knee problem. Jurgen Klopp is set to be without Alexander-Arnold for this month’s Carabao Cup final against Chelsea and potentially the Premier League title six-pointer with Manchester City on March 10.

The 25-year-old right-back had just returned from a knee injury in Saturday’s 3-1 win against Burnley at Anfield, which restored Liverpool’s status as league leaders.

However, there was concern after he withdrew at half-time through complaints about the same knee he had previously damaged.

And the diagnosis doesn’t make good reading for Liverpool and Klopp, with multiple reports claiming Alexander-Arnold will miss the next few weeks at least.

Alexander-Arnold was absent for three games after suffering a minor tear of a lateral knee ligament during Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Arsenal in the FA Cup third round.

He returned as a substitute in the 5-2 triumph over Norwich City in the next round before coming off the bench as the Reds thumped Chelsea 4-1 in the Premier League.

Alexander-Arnold then played 58 minutes of the 3-1 loss at the Emirates Stadium at the start of the month before retaining his starting berth against Burnley.
