Trent Alexander-Arnold tests positive for Covid-19

Liverpool have confirmed that right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss Sunday’s FA Cup third round tie at home to Shrewsbury Town.

The Reds take on the League One side at Anfield with a depleted squad. Liverpool’s Carabao Cup trip to Arsenal on Thursday was postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak at the training ground, but they’ve managed to put together a team to face Shrewsbury.

However, Liverpool have revealed Alexander-Arnold will play no part as he returned a positive test shortly after their 2-2 draw at Chelsea last week.

The Merseyside club threw away a two-goal lead at Stamford Bridge, though the England right-back picked up a neat assist for Mohamed Salah.

Alexander-Arnold is expected to return to training in a few days and could make his comeback against Arsenal this coming Thursday – Liverpool will now be at home for the first leg of the semi-final following this week’s cancellation.
