Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is hopeful that he will be able to regain full fitness in the upcoming few weeks as he aims to make an early return to Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI.
The young English defender came off the bench in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday in what was his first appearance since suffering a knee injury against Brighton on January 12.
He started by stating, “I feel good; it was good to get a bit of fitness in there at the weekend and that’ll help me get back to full fitness and to push on and hopefully start a few games in the next few weeks.”
Arnold then revealed his ambitions on returning to full fitness as he said, “It was something I’ve never really experienced before in being injured. It was something new and something to get my head around, so it was tough to me. But it’s thanks to the manager, the physios and the medical department in helping me get back so quickly – ahead of schedule.”
Much to be noted is the fact that in Trent’s absence, Liverpool dropped points against West Ham and Leicester in 1-1 draws, thus allowing title rivals Manchester City to overtake them in the Premier League, although the Merseyside club have a game in hand.
