Trent and Jota expected to play for Liverpool against Watford

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Diogo Jota are expected to be available for Liverpool for their Premier League game against Watford on Saturday, October 16.

Alexander-Arnold missed the Reds’ meetings with FC Porto and Manchester City before the international match due to a muscle problem.

Trent also did not join the England squad for their recent matches with Hungary and Andorra.

Jota, on the other hand, sat out Portugal’s international matches against Qatar and Luxembourg during the October break.

Both are ready to fully train with their teammates ahead of the trip to Vicarage Road, but Jürgen Klopp is therefore optimistic they can estimate this weekend.

However, the lunchtime game is likely to come too early for Thiago Alcantara – the Spain international continues to recover from a calf injury.

The Spaniard has missed games against Norwich, Brentford, Porto and Manchester City since he suffered the injury.

Asked about a team fitness update, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told on Wednesday: “They are all good, they are all in a good way, let me put it this way.

“So it looks like Trent and Diogo will be fine, they will train very normally with us tomorrow, that’s the plan.

“Thiago probably needs a little longer, [he] wasn’t in team training yet – that’s always not a good sign to start the next game.

“And the rest [of the] International [players], some are back, some are clearly not back yet. And we will see.”

Liverpool will travel to Vicarage Road this weekend to take on Watford for the first time since their 3-0 defeat to the Hornets in February 2020.

The game starts on Saturday at 12:30 PM.
