Trent Alexander-Arnold will have a scan on a possible hamstring injury he sustained in Liverpool’s victory against Aston Villa, according to Jurgen Klopp.
Due to an injury issue, the 24-year-old was forced to leave the match on Sunday at Anfield in the 71st minute and was replaced by Jarell Quansah.
It was a letdown to see Alexander-Arnold’s game, which was maybe his finest of the season, come to an end. A-A made a strong impression in his full-back position against Aston Villa, and he was even given credit for an assist on Dominik Szoboszlai’s game-opening goal.
Alexander-Arnold’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, gave an update on the player, adding that a scan is necessary to establish the extent of the injury. “I’m curious as well,” he said. “I’m not entirely sure. His hamstring, in his opinion, is not too seriously injured.”
Regarding the victory itself, Klopp was eager to praise his squad for their “great effort” against a skilled Villa club. “An early goal will benefit the game, as they say in sports, and it absolutely helped us. It was a magnificent goal, and during training, it had been stressed that Dominik posed a threat if the ball were to travel in that area. Overall, the game was extremely nice. I have the utmost respect for Aston Villa and Unai Emery because of what they’re doing; we have learned this from all of our encounters with them.”
After the break for international play, Liverpool will return to Premier League action when they take on Wolves at Molineux.
