He added that the 22-year-old Brit has not been infected by Covid-19 after conducting covid tests. Klopp had to make some quick changes in the squad due to the sudden absence of Alexander-Arnold.

“Trent woke up earlier today, felt ill, we just needed to send him home,” Jürgen Klopp stated. “It’s all fine, it’s not Covid. We tried everything, except he didn’t feel good in any case,” he continued.

Alexander-Arnold was expected to be the exclusive player to hold his place from Liverpool’s back four against AC Milan, yet all things being equal, Klopp has handled the defence. James Milner replaced Alexander-Arnold against the Crystal Palace clash.
