Trent Alexander-Arnold has resumed training as he continues to make progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury.

The vice-captain has not figured since Liverpool’s win over Aston Villa on September 3 but is closing in on a return to action after joining his teammates in their session on Monday.

Pepijn Lijnders told Liverpoolfc.com: “Trent trained yesterday with us but it was just in the rondo and the ball possession with the counter-pressing, but he was outstanding.

“You see him instantly, of course. He is with the team training, I am not sure if he will be ready, we will see today.

“But then if we speak about Trent we have to make a compliment to Joe Gomez because the way he played the role, played the role in his way but still being able to come inside as well, was just incredible. His level and attitude, just a big compliment to him because you are replacing one of the best full-backs in the world.

“He did really, really well. That’s good and shows a lot about our squad as well, that we can have that.”

Liverpool’s only other injury concern at the moment is Thiago Alcantara, with Lijnders adding: “He is in a good way, the healing process is going well so that’s the most important [thing] at this moment.”
