Trent Alexander-Arnold has missed Liverpool’s last nine games due to a knee injury, and, unfortunately for the Reds, that's set to become 10 games, with the right-back set to miss this weekend's visit of Brighton.

Kicking off at 2pm on Sunday, Liverpool’s players could be three points clear at the top of the Premier League as they switch on Manchester City vs Arsenal which kicks off at 4.30pm later that day.

But it looks like they'll have to do it without Alexander-Arnold, who hasn’t kicked a football competitively since 10 February.
