Liverpool have reportedly received a real boost with Trent Alexander-Arnold set to return this weekend against Wolves.
The England star has been sidelined for the past few weeks with a calf injury, picked up against Manchester City in the final game before the last international break.
He’s missed the past four matches in all competitions, but The Daily Express has claimed the 22-year-old will be involved in some capacity this weekend when Wolves come to Anfield.
The development, if accurate, will be a major positive for the Reds, who have been severely depleted in recent weeks.
£100,000-a-week star Alexander-Arnold (LFC Globe) is absolutely key for Jurgen Klopp’s side, as is Andy Robertson on the opposite flank.
He hasn’t quite been firing at the same rate as the Scot in 2020/21 in terms of assists, but Alexander-Arnold’s eye for a killer cross is undeniable.
On Sunday, Liverpool welcome Wolves, who are currently in the process of trying out a new system – one that Alexander-Arnold could get some joy against if Nuno Espirito Santo rolls it out for a third match running.
TBR’s View – A timely return
Alexander-Arnold’s influence for Liverpool is huge and so to potentially have him involved on Sunday will be brilliant for Klopp.
If Wolves go four at the back, he’ll really fancy his chances of producing some attacking returns.
After slipping up against Brighton, a return to winning ways is paramount for the champions and Alexeander-Arnold playing would definitely boost their hopes of getting three points.
