'It hurts': Trent reflects on knee injury, sets return date

Trent Alexander-Arnold has been sidelined with a knee ligament injury since early February. The Englishman has missed 14 Liverpool games.

"It's been difficult," the vice-captain said of his time out. "You pick up your niggles, issues that rule you out for a few weeks, and you get on with it.

"But when it's months and you're missing finals and games against teams like Man City then it hurts. The whole world is watching and that's the stage you want to be on performing.

"You want to be winning trophies and in title races. But it's been incredible to see the young lads come into the team and perform like they have done. The day we had at Wembley [League Cup final against Chelsea] was amazing.

"When you're not playing yourself and not able to do what you've always done, it's hard. Football is your life. If everything keeps going right then I should be back in the next couple of weeks."

Conor Bradley has stepped up in Trent's absence so it would be interesting to see who gets to start after the 25-year-old returns from injury.
