Liverpool right back Trent Alexander-Arnold will miss Sunday's home Premier League game against champion Manchester City due to a muscle injury, manager Jurgen Klopp said on Thursday.

The 22-year-old was absent for Liverpool's 5-1 win over Porto in the Champions League and omitted from England's squad for World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.

 

Klopp expects Alexander-Arnold to return after the international break along with midfielder Thiago Alcantara, who is recovering from a calf injury.

"... They are doing well but they won't have enough time for being back against City," said the German.

"But we have a good team so we still have solutions and we have to use them and yeah, after the international break the boys will be back I think."

Liverpool, who drew 3-3 with Brentford in the league last weekend, tops the table with 14 points. City is a point behind in second.
