Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is in a race against time to return to full fitness ahead of the top-of-the-table clash against Manchester City.
The 23-year-old sustained a hamstring injury before the international break, which kept him out of the 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest earlier this month.
Alexander-Arnold is still expected to miss the Reds’ next league fixture versus Watford, and it is likely he will be absent for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Benfica too. However, there is optimism that he will be in the matchday squad for the trip to the Etihad on April 10th.
Naby Keita has had to withdraw from international duty with Guinea after picking up a knee problem against Forest. It is not expected to keep him out for long, though, with it being reported that it is a minor issue.
Vice-captain James Milner has been sidelined with illness for Liverpool’s last two games but the 36-year-old returned to full training last week.
