Trent Alexander-Arnold returns to full training in boost for Liverpool ahead of match against Watford… with Jurgen Klopp’s side already set to miss Brazilian internationals Alisson and Fabinho against the Hornets 

Trent Alexander-Arnold is in line to make his comeback for Liverpool against Watford this weekend.

The 23-year-old missed the club’s last two games against Porto and Manchester City, as well the October internationals with England, due to a groin injury he sustained in training last month.

In a boost ahead of their lunchtime kick-off against the Hornets on Saturday, the Liverpool right-back returned to full training on Wednesday.

The Liverpool star will now be in line to play this weekend after he was replaced by James Milner in their last two games.

It comes as a particularly timely boost with Jurgen Klopp’s side set to miss some key men for their first game after the international break.

Goalkeeper Alisson and Fabinho are almost certainly set to miss the game against Watford as they are away on international duty with Brazil.

Diogo Jota is also a doubt for the weekend after he was sent home early from international duty with Portugal after sustaining a muscle injury before their 3-0 victory over 2022 World Cup hosts Qatar on Saturday.
