Jürgen Klopp has provided a positive update on Trent Alexander-Arnold's fitness.
The Liverpool right-back will not be available for Friday night’s trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers as he continues to recover from the knock he sustained against Napoli a week ago.
But there is hope that Alexander-Arnold can return to contention for the Reds’ fixtures after Christmas, the manager revealed.
“It actually looks surprisingly good,” said Klopp. “I think Wolves will still be a bit too early but after that, they told me we can think about him.
“But for that, he needs to train. So far he didn’t train but the pain goes down second by second, which is good, and then in the moment when he can deal with it, he is on the pitch, and in the moment he is on the pitch we’ll make a decision.
“But it looks good for Trent.”
