'We're so finished': Some Liverpool fans already worried with news they're hearing ahead of Manchester City game
Liverpool fans are now seriously concerned with the news that Trent Alexander-Arnold is a doubt for their game against Manchester City at the weekend.
The Liverpool Echo reported last night that Alexander-Arnold has not travelled to Portugal with the rest of the Liverpool squad to take on Porto.
The right-back will not play tonight and, even more worryingly, his availability for the weekend looks far from certain.
With Liverpool set to face their toughest challenge of the season so far on Sunday when they take on City, there are now serious concerns that they could have to do so without the England international.
Potentially bad news
If Liverpool are without Alexander-Arnold it will be a major blow to their chances of success.
While James Milner is always a reliable deputy, he is ageing and his lack of pace could be exposed by the quality of City’s front-line.
Liverpool’s creativity will also be dented by the absence of Alexander-Arnold.
The 22-year-old is one of the Reds’ most potent weapons in the final third and without him their front-line could receive reduced service.
Liverpool actually go into the game ahead of City, but Pep Guardiola’s side’s recent victory over Chelsea has outlined their credentials to challenge for the title again this season.
