Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has revealed that Trent Alexander-Arnold should be fine for this weekend’s match against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

This comes after the England right-back was too ill to travel during the midweek for Liverpool’s Champions League tie against Genk.

Joel Matip also missed the game in Belgium, but Football London claim that the centre-back was merely being rested, and expect him to start against the Lilywhites on Sunday.

Klopp also commented on Andy Robertson, who was seen hobbling from the pitch just past the hour mark against Genk on Wednesday evening. However, the Scottish star was apparently just being rested.

Klopp said (Metro): “Yeah, we just rested Robbo. We thought that’s enough for today [against Genk], 60 minutes. He could do it and did it. He is fine.

“Trent is fine. Or looked fine, if there is no setback. He was ill – ill enough to not travel with us, which is not a good sign, but yesterday he had a clearing session and if it is as it was yesterday then he should be fine.”

Spurs will be hoping to take revenge on the Reds after the infamous Champions League Final defeat back in June.

Liverpool have yet to lose a game so far this Premier League season, and Pochettino will be dreaming of becoming the first side to inflict that kind of dent in Klopp’s title challenge.
