Liverpool's first-team player suffers ligament tear injury


Liverpool Football Club will be without Trent Alexander-Arnold for at least a few weeks after he picked up a ligament injury ahead of the Carabao Cup clash against Fulham.

There is no confirmation from the club to determine how long the England International will be out as the medical staff are still waiting to see the full extent of the injury but he has been ruled out of the cup game.

The news was confirmed by the Reds, assistant manager, Pep Lijnders during the pre-match press conference ahead of the game.

He said,

"First of all, some not-that-good news, Trent hyperextended his knee during the last game, he has a little tear in the lateral ligament of his knee and he will need time to recover. He had a scan and he will be out for a few weeks, so let's see after that. He will get some rest and then hopefully he can come back to where he was. Because this guy was decisive in all the games and was the one who created constantly for us from deep and gave the team a high level of flexibility. We will really miss him."

There are reports that he could be out for three weeks which means he might miss both legs of the Cup tie. Liverpool supporters will hope he is fit before the league game against Bournemouth.
