The England international defender picked up an untimely knock during the latter stages of a 3-0 win over Aston Villa. He was prevented from heading away with the Three Lions as a result and is yet to return to training at club level.

Reds boss Klopp told reporters when asked for an update on Alexander-Arnold’s fitness: “[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.”

Liverpool are set to face Wolves at Molineux on Saturday, with Klopp delivering more positive news on the respective recoveries of Darwin Nunez, Thiago Alcantara and Ibrahima Konate. He added: “Thiago is running, but that’s it. Ibou trained for two days with the team. [Nunez] I didn’t see him yet, but obviously we 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.”

Liverpool have enjoyed an unbeaten start to the 2023-24 campaign, with 10 points collected from four games so far. After taking in a trip to Wolves, the Reds are due to open their quest for Europa League glory when heading to Austria to face LASK next Thursday.
