Alexander-Arnold emerges as Liverpool doubt
Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold could miss Liverpool's trip to Bayern Munich next week after appearing to pick up an injury.
England international Alexander-Arnold, who has only just returned to competitive action after a knee problem, was forced off in Sunday's 4-2 victory at home to Burnley in the 86th minute.
The 20-year-old appeared in discomfort as he left the pitch and there are now huge doubts surrounding his fitness ahead of Wednesday's Champions League last-16, second-leg clash at the Allianz Arena.
Liverpool will be hoping the defender's problem is not as bad as first feared as the club's other right-back options are limited at the moment, with James Milner likely having to fill in.
Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson have also played at right-back this season and they could be deployed in the role again if Alexander-Arnold is unable to feature in Germany.
James Mason grew up in Northumberland so is entrenched in both the football and golf scenes. A low handicap golfer, he also follows Newcastle United and predicts big things under Rafa Benitez.
