After Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Aston Villa at Anfield, boss Jurgen Klopp revealed that Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to undergo a scan following a hamstring problem sustained during the match.
Sporting the captain’s armband against Unai Emery’s Villa, Alexander-Arnold showed a stellar performance throughout the match.
However, the No. 66 sensation was forced off the pitch midway through the second half, succumbing to a hamstring problem.
Jarell Quansah stepped in to fill the void left by the injured star.
Alexander-Arnold came off in the 71st minute – moments after firing a strong effort over the crossbar.

Onlookers witnessed Alexander-Arnold exchanging words with Klopp on the touchline. Klopp, in the aftermath of Liverpool’s resounding 3-0 triumph, provided a cautiously optimistic update.
‘I’m interested as well. I don’t know exactly,’ he said. ‘I asked him and he said it’s (his) hamstring.
‘Not too serious is his opinion, but we obviously have to wait for the scans. Then we will know more.
‘Besides Trent’s hamstring, it was the perfect afternoon. The atmosphere, the weather. My god! I cannot imagine a better Sunday.’
The 22-year-old had recently received a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine and a friendly clash with Scotland.
Alexander-Arnold provided an assist for new signing Dominik Szoboszlai’s first Liverpool goal – opening the scoring within just three minutes of play.
An own goal from Matty Cash doubled the Reds’ lead, and Mo Salah made it three just ten minutes into the second half following a cross from Darwin Nuñez.
