Jurgen Klopp provides update on Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold injury at Aston Villa match

Jurgen Klopp and Trent Alexander-Arnold have led Liverpool to an early title race this season as the Reds won their third game in four Premier League matches against Aston Villa on Sunday. The former Liverpool academy player captained Liverpool in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, who was suspended for the game after being sent off against Newcastle last weekend.

Alexander-Arnold put in a good shift at right-back for Liverpool and got himself an assist when his corner fell to new signing Szoboszlai to score Liverpool’s first goal of the game. Sadly, injury ruined Trend Alexander-Arnold’s perfect afternoon as he was hauled off in the second quarter of the game.

Jurgen Klopp provides update on Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold injury

Alexander-Arnold had a great game until the 71st minute of the match against Aston Villa, when he went down and was eventually taken off. This concerned many Liverpool fans as they wouldn’t want to miss a player of the youngster’s quality very early in the season as they continue to mount a title charge. Jurgen Klopp provided a short update on the Englishman’s injury in his post-match press conferences as posted on Liverpool’s official website. “I don’t know exactly. I asked him; he said it’s his hamstring. Not too serious in his opinion, but we obviously have to wait for the scans, and then we will know more,” the Liverpool boss said.

The Reds have started their season very strongly after that 1-1 draw against Chelsea in the opening game of the season. Jurgen Klopp’s men have won three in a row, putting them in a strong position before heading into the international break. Jurgen Klopp must be impressed with what he’s seen from his team so far after the German failed to inspire Liverpool to mount a title challenge last season, with the Reds finishing fifth in the league, behind City, Arsenal, United, and Newcastle.

Trent Alexander-Arnold to be scanned to evaluate the injury

The youngster captained his side against Aston Villa on Sunday and quickly made an impression when he provided an assist for Dominik Szoboszlai in the fifth minute from a corner to score Liverpool’s first goal. He continued to impress in the game, whether from the usual right-back spot or when shifted to a more central role in the midfield, but a suspected hamstring injury prevented him from playing the full game.

The extent of the injury is unknown, and Liverpool will have to wait for the scan results to learn how much they’ll have to do without the 24-year-old.

How long do you think it will be until Trent Alexander-Arnold is back in action?
