NewsInjury update: Trent Alexander-Arnold set to miss Wolves clash, Konate and Nunez latest
Trent Alexander-Arnold will miss Liverpool’s trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday due to injury.
The vice-captain is recovering from a hamstring issue sustained in the latter stages of the Reds’ 3-0 win over Aston Villa last time out.
Jürgen Klopp told his pre-match press conference: “[There is] no concern. He is not available, we knew that before.
“He didn’t train with the team once yet and will take a little bit. It is not the worst hamstring injury you can have but it’s a hamstring injury and they barely heal in two weeks - and this one didn’t, either.
“As he is running already, we hope he can start ball work early next week and then we will see and go from there.”
Offering an update on the other fitness concerns within his squad, Klopp had positive news on several fronts, with Ibrahima Konate and Darwin Nunez set to be available for the fixture at Molineux.
“Thiago is running, but that’s it,” added the boss. “Ibou trained for two days with the team.
“[Darwin Nunez] I didn’t see him yet, but we obviously had contact and he said it was fine, but we will see that now and make a couple of decisions there. Darwin should be fine.
“[Jarell Quansah] trained the full week with us, so it was obviously then enough time to rest. Stefan [Bajcetic] had a good camp with the [Spain] U21s, played only a few minutes but [it] helped him anyway. I think that’s it.”
