Gomez’s return is important for the remainder of the campaign as the English defender was brilliant alongside Virgil van Dijk at the start of the season.
Trent’s return is important for Liverpool
The right-back carried a knock when he joined the England squad during the international break. The youngster was sent back to recover from his problem.
Alexander-Arnold participating in full training could see him face Tottenham at the weekend, which would be great for the Reds.
The English right-back is one of the best crossers of the ball in the team. His deliveries from the wide positions and from dead-ball situations provide us with another dimension in the attack.
Replacing him with James Milner or even Jordan Henderson would reduce our output in the final third, and hopefully, the right-back starts for us on Sunday.
Tottenham will not be an easy team to face, even though they have been in poor Premier League form recently.
