Klopp expects Alexander-Arnold to return after the international break along with Thiago Alcantara, who’s recovering from a calf injury.

“No,” the boss told the Liverpool media team when asked if he had an update on Alexander-Arnold and Thiago’s fitness.

“No ‘news’ means they are doing well but they won’t have enough time for being back against City.

“But I expect them both to be back after the international break. 

“We have a good team so we still have solutions and we have to use them and yeah, after the international break the boys will be back I think.”

Given how strong City are, some Liverpool fans are anxious about facing them without Alexander-Arnold in their line-up.

Here is what some have said on Twitter:

Alexander-Arnold sat out the visit of Crystal Palace through illnes.

However, he was available for the 3-3 draw against Brentford last weekend

Alexander-Arnold isn’t in the England team for their World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.
