Liverpool defender Trent Alexandre-Arnold is expected to sit out the upcoming Champions League clash with Belgian top flight team Genk.

This is because the England international right-back is unwell and has been excused from the traveling squad to Belgium.

Trent Alexandre-Arnold has been a regular for Liverpool this season in both the Premier League and the Champions League.

He has played all the games in the two major competitions this season.

The English player was part of the Liverpool team that won the Champions League title last season at the expense of North London club Tottenham Hotspur.

Trent Alexandre-Arnold and Liverpool beat Spurs 2-0 in their final clash to secure the title and a sixth European crown.

Mohamed Salah (penalty) and second half substitute Divock Origi got the goals for Liverpool during that final played at the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.

In the absence of Trent Alexandre-Arnold, Joe Gomez or James Milner is expected to slot in at right-back for Liverpool.

In another development, star player Mohamed Salah has returned to training in time for the Genk game after missing the league game at Manchester United at the weekend.

Salah was absent as Liverpool played out a 1-1 draw with hosts Manchester United at the weekend.
