Trent Alexander-Arnold: Liverpool defender set to withdraw from England squad with injury

Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to withdraw from the England squad to face Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland this month with a suspected calf injury.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed the defender will have a scan on Monday but insisted it would keep the defender out of England’s squad for their upcoming fixtures next week.

“He will be out of England. Scan tomorrow and then we will see,” Klopp said after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Manchester City on Sunday.

The right-back had to be substituted in the 63rd minute with a suspected calf problem, with James Milner replacing him.

Chelsea defender Reece James, who could deputise for Alexander-Arnold, can feature in the friendly match against the Republic of Ireland on November 12, but is suspended for Nations League matches against Belgium and Ireland later this month.
