Trent Alexander-Arnold is still a ‘few weeks’ away from full fitness after missing out on Liverpool’s last 3 Premier League fixtures.
He told the club’s official website, “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.”
“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.”
Without their starting right-back, Liverpool failed to win against Leicester and West Ham which in turn allowed Manchester City catch up to them in the title race Premier League.
The 20-year-old further added, “It was difficult because you feel like you’ve got no control at all, whereas when you’re on the pitch, you have a little bit the sense of being able to influence the game, impact the game in some way.”
“It was difficult for me knowing I wasn’t going to be able to influence the games at all, but I was there and trying to support the lads as well as I could.”
“We didn’t get the results we wanted, but we remained undefeated and bounced back at the weekend with three points.”
