Jurgen Klopp provides injury update on Wijnaldum and Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has provided injury updates on Trent Alexander-Arnold and Georginio Wijnaldum.

20-year-old Arnold has suffered knee ligament injury during the warm up of Crystal Palace match (4-3), while Wijnaldum got injured during Brighton match (1-0)

Klopp told club’s official website“He (Trent) is better, much better, but we have to see,” said Klopp. “It needs to be stable – and in the moment it is stable and it’s about the pain.

“Everyone knows how desperate Trent is to play; he can ignore pretty much everything. That he played that game at Brighton was sensational, to be honest. It’s unbelievable.

“Adrenaline is obviously really hard stuff and gives you the opportunity to grow a bit in the game, so they did.

“It will not be long (for Trent), but is he ready for Leicester? I don’t know, we will find out.

“Then it’s West Ham and then Bournemouth. After that he will be 100% (back) but until then, we have to see.”

“Gini is good, better. The plan is that he will have one session today and then we have to see how he reacts on that. Hopefully we can build from that point.”
