Klopp delivers positive Alexander-Arnold update
Jurgen Klopp is hopeful Trent Alexander-Arnold will be fit for Liverpool's Champions League clash with Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
The England international right-back was forced off with a muscle problem during the latter stages of Saturday's 4-2 victory over Burnley in the Premier League, but he trained on Tuesday morning and Klopp subsequently included him in his 21-man squad for the trip to Germany.
Klopp is certainly optimistic Alexander-Arnold will be able to feature at the Allianz Arena, although the Reds medical team will be keeping a close eye on him during the build-up to the match.
"It looks good. He had a bit of a problem obviously but it should not be a major concern," Klopp told the Liverpool website. "We cannot judge the situation now, we have to wait this full day, tomorrow possibly the full day – we have two days and then we have a little, little session on Wednesday morning.
"If we know then, it’s good and then we’ll choose the team and play."
The last-16 tie remains on a knife-edge after the two teams played out a goalless draw during last month’s first leg at Anfield, with Liverpool looking to join the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United in the quarter-finals.
