Neil Jones provides injury update on Liverpool star ahead of Watford clash
Goal.com journalist Neil Jones has provided an update on Liverpool’s star Trent Alexander-Arnold ahead of their Premier League clash with Watford on Saturday.
Trent Alexander Arnold who is in astonishing form this season with 17 assists has sustained an injury during their 2-0 win over Arsenal before the international break.
On the latest episode of the Journo Insight Show of The Redmen TV, Jones, who’s been monitoring Alexander-Arnold’s situation, has ruled him out of the Hornets’ visit.He said:
“I don’t think he’ll play against Watford. I think as soon as he did the injury, there were a lot of people who rolled their eyes and said, ‘Ohhh, an injury for Trent, miss a couple of friendlies, does he?!’ It was an injury; he did get a problem. It was in the Arsenal game.
“He would have missed the Forest game anyway, probably. I think it was accepted that Watford – forget about that.”
“Although he’s close to a return, he feels their upcoming Champions League match against Benfica next week might not be worth the risk as Jurgen Klopp won’t throw him in the deep end.
“I think there’s a general feeling that Benfica might not be worth the risk, then you’ve got City, then you’ve got Benfica, City again, so probably the City game [April 10th] seems like a more realistic target. I believe he’s been doing some training this week.”
“We saw him in the break in Dubai. He seemed to have a good view from his exercise bike on Instagram!
“He was getting his rehab in, which can’t be bad. I think he’ll have an outside chance of playing against Benfica, if not City,” he said.
