Liverpool welcome Alexander-Arnold for Benfica clash

Liverpool have Trent Alexander-Arnold available for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg with Benfica.

The England right-back has not featured for Liverpool since injuring his hamstring against Arsenal on March 16.

Alexander-Arnold was an unused substitute for Saturday's win over Watford and he could be back in the line-up to face Benfica in Lisbon.

"Yes, full squad available, absolutely," manager Jurgen Klopp told the club's website.

"Curtis [Jones] was just a little swelling, [it] disappeared then overnight, fine.

"Same with Joel [Matip], which is really helpful because it looked really strange.

"Yes, and Trent trained now four or five days, I'm not sure exactly, but yes, he is ready as well."
