Trent Alexander-Arnold has added to Liverpool’s mounting injury list and is expected to be out for the next four weeks.

The right-back was forced off during his side’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City and underwent a scan on Merseyside today, having already been ruled out of England’s international fixtures.

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, knew Alexander-Arnold’s injury would not be minor.

The prognosis is that he will now miss the Premier League games against top of the table Leicester, Brighton and Wolves, as well as Champions League fixtures against Atalanta and Ajax, both of which are at Anfield.

Liverpool have endured major disruption so far this season with injuries.

They will be without Virgil van Dijk for the foreseeable future after he underwent surgery to repair his damaged cruciate ligament.

Thiago Alcantara – who has only played 135 minutes since his £20million move from Bayern Munich – is also missing, as is Fabinho, the influential midfielder who had been playing as a central defender.

Thiago continues to receive treatment for the injury he sustained following a heavy challenge from Richarlison during the Merseyside Derby on October 17. Liverpool hope he will be ready to return after the international break.
