Liverpool assistant Lijnders rules out Alexander-Arnold for Norwich

Liverpool assistant coach Pep Lijnders has confirmed Trent Alexander-Arnold will miss Tuesday's Carabao Cup third-round clash with Norwich City.

The English right-back withdrew from Saturday's win over Crystal Palace due to illness.

"Our game basically started at 12 o'clock against Palace; he took responsibility to speak with the doctor," Lijnders said.

"It was not easy because these guys – it says a lot about our group anyway – they want to play everything, [even] if they feel a bit shaky or ill, but he took the responsibility.

"There are no Covid symptoms. We test regardless. He should be fine in a few days but Norwich comes too early."
