Trent Alexander-Arnold injury scare for Liverpool as defender limps off Anfield pitch after win over Burnley

LIVERPOOL fans are sweating over the fitness of Trent Alexander-Arnold after the full-back seemed to pick up a knock in the closing stages of the Reds' 2-0 win against Burnley.

It's not yet clear what the apparent injury is, or how serious it may be though.


After the final whistle blew at Anfield, BT Sport commentator Steve McManaman said: "He's just limping a bit, hopefully he'll be alright." in reference to Alexander-Arnold.

The BT cameras didn't show the Liverpool right-back receiving any treatment, so Reds fans face a nervous wait to discover the extent of the apparent injury.

The 22-year-old missed England's Euro 2020 campaign with a thigh injury after being injured late-on in a warm-up game against Austria.

And Liverpool could do without the injury to Alexander-Arnold being of real note, with his fellow full-back Andy Robertson currently on the sidelines.

Robertson suffered ankle ligament damage in Liverpool's pre-season game against Athletic Bilbao.

The 27-year-old Scotland captain missed Liverpool's season opener against Norwich last week, but was on the bench against Burnley.

He's expected to be fit enough to return to the first team for next week's clash against Chelsea though.

But the last thing Liverpool want is to have one full-back out of action just as another returns.

Jurgen Klopp's side were plagued by injuries last season, with Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez were all long-term absentees.

After topping the table in December the Reds' form slumped in the second half of the season.

The Anfield side finished 17 points behind eventual champions Manchester City in a disappointing defence to the title they won the season before.
