• Trent Alexander-Arnold suffered an injury Sunday
  • He is out of England's upcoming games
  • Liverpool were held at 1-1 draw in their latest Premier League game

Liverpool FC suffered a new injury blow when their right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold limped off the field during the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Manchester City Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed at the post-match press conference that Trent will miss England’s upcoming games.

"Trent will be out for England, that is clear. What he has, we don’t know, but he cannot play for England. He will not be the last and not the only one who Gareth [Southgate] will miss for this international break," Klopp said.

While Trent is set to miss England’s fixtures against the Republic of Ireland, Belgium, and Iceland at the international break, which will be underway until Nov. 19, Liverpool are awaiting further diagnosis following a scan Monday.

With the Etihad draw, Liverpool have already dropped points three times in their opening eight matches. Klopp’s side is currently placed third in the 2020-21 Premier League table, having secured 17 points.

The defending champions have suffered several injury blows since the start of the season. They are already without the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Fabinho. Van Dijk is expected to miss the remainder of the ongoing campaign as he is recovering from an ACL injury. The likes of Fabinho and Joel Matip were being considered as ideal covers for van Dijk, but unfortunately for Klopp, both the players ended up getting injured.

While Matip returned to action Sunday, the defensive midfielder Fabinho is expected to return to action post the international break. There is no update about Alcantara and Chamberlain’s return as yet.

Chamberlain is yet to make an appearance for Liverpool in the 2020-21 season and Alcantara has played only twice since joining the Anfield side from Bayern Munich in the summer. Alcantara and van Djik suffered their respective injuries during Liverpool’s 2-2 against Everton at Goodison Park.

Liverpool’s first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker was also out for a few matches this season following a nasty collision in training. The first Premier League game that Alisson missed was an away fixture against Aston Villa, which turned out to be a disaster for The Reds as they ended up losing 7-2.
