Trent Alexander-Arnold injury update after Brighton 0 – Liverpool 1

Trent Alexander-Arnold before Brighton

Liverpool had a major scare on Saturday in the warm up before the Brighton game.

Jurgen Klopp travelled to the south coast with significant defensive problems.

Fabinho was asked to play at centre-half with the likes of Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip all sidelined through injury.

At right back, Trent Alexander-Arnold now has that position all to himself.

Nathaniel Clyne has left Anfield for Bournemouth in January on loan.

Minutes before the Brighton game kicked off, Alexander-Arnold was down holding his ankle.

Is Alexander-Arnold injured?

Not only did Alexander-Arnold start the match at Brighton, he completed 90 minutes.

So what happened?

After the game the defender spoke about his pre-game injury:

After a few minutes [it] got better and I told the medical staff I just needed some strapping and some pain killers and I’d be good to go.

When you get into the zone it helps.
