Trent Alexander-Arnold will be out of action for at least four weeks due to the injury he sustained during Liverpool’s 1-1 clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Reports from England have it that the right-back will not be in action until early December as Liverpool’s injury list continues to pile up.

Recall that Virgil van Dijk is likely to be out for the remainder of the season and consequently, the Reds will now be playing without two of their key defenders.

The centre-back did not last long during the tense Saturday, October 17, clash and had to be withdrawn just minutes into the match.

Van Dijk sustained the injury after a reckless tackle from Everton keeper Jordan Pickford, with Liverpool confirming the defender damaged his anterior cruciate ligament.

Whereas a club statement released on Sunday, October 18, did not provide a time frame on when Van Dijk will be expected to return to action, it is understood that the Dutchman is unlikely to feature again this season.

Also Fabinho who was brought in as the new centre-back is yet to recover from his own injury, with Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also missing the fixture against City.

And now there are growing concerns at the Anfield club as Alexander-Arnold who suddenly went down off the ball with half an hour to play was replaced by James Milner.

The prognosis could be worse, but various reports, including from The Times' Paul Joyce, say the 22-year-old is facing around four weeks on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Mikel Arteta has taken responsibility for Arsenal's 3-0 humbling defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday night, November 8, at the Emirates.

The Gunners came into the match on the backdrop of their 1-0 encouraging win over Man United at Old Trafford in the Premier League. However, they failed to build on the win against a resurgent Villa side who completely outplayed them.

And Arteta had no excuses to make in his post-match press, admitting his side failed to play as a team.
