Why Trent Alexander-Arnold missed Liverpool’s meeting with Porto/ Update on right-back’s availability for weekend

Liverpool have provided an official explanation for Trent Alexander-Arnold’s absence vs FC Porto on Tuesday.

Porto vs Liverpool

Liverpool are back in Champions League action later this evening.

The Reds began their 2021/22 European venture by facing off with AC Milan at Anfield.

The tie was a closely-contested affair, which would see Milan head in at the break with a 2-1 lead thanks to late first-half strikes from Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz.

Liverpool, though, would fight back and eventually come away with a big 3-2 win.

Jurgen Klopp and co. must now turn their attentions to FC Porto who, on paper, should be the Reds’ easiest group-stage opponents this year.

However, it is worth noting that Porto would hold Atletico Madrid to a 0-0 draw in their opening group clash, suggesting they will be no pushover when they host Liverpool at the Estadio do Dragao shortly

Elsewhere, James Pearce of The Athletic reported that it is still not clear if Trent will be available for the weekend when Liverpool face Manchester City:
