Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Trent Alexander-Arnold has suffered a recurrence of his knee injury during Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Burnley on Saturday.

Liverpool’s right-back was forced off at half time, while goals from Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez sealed the win for Klopp’s side, who have now restored their two-point advantage over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

Alexander-Arnold miss three games for Liverpool due to a knee issue and Klopp claims the England international will now undergo further tests after he was withdrawn early against Burnley.

‘Same area in the knee,’ Klopp said after Liverpool’s win at Anfield.

‘Nothing really bad but he felt it again and we have to see. We will assess it.

‘We were made aware of it in the game so thought, ‘what can we do’, then Trent said, ‘no it’s fine’.

‘But it’s not as he feels it so we had to be careful and take him off.’

In his post-match press conference Klopp added: ‘He felt it there [in his knee]. He got stuck in the grass, we will see, further assessment.’
