Alexander-Arnold returns - How Liverpool could line up against Brentford

Trent Alexander-Arnold has missed the last Liverpool games with illness but should return for the fixture versus Brentford

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will welcome Trent Alexander-Arnold back into his starting XI for Saturday's Premier League encounter away at Brentford.

The England international has missed the last two matches due to an illness but Klopp revealed earlier this week that he expects his first-choice right-back to be available for Premier League duties this weekend.

Roberto Firmino hasn't played since the end of August but could be available here, though we will likely see him from the bench as he is carefully introduced back into action.

Alisson will start in goal in front of a back four of Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Andy Robertson.

Thiago picked up a calf injury against Crystal Palace and is set to miss a couple of weeks of action, while Naby Keita was withdrawn as a precautionary measure after feeling an issue against Norwich in the League Cup.

Keita should be available, but Klopp will likely go with a midfield three of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Curtis Jones.

With Firmino not 100% fit, Liverpool will go with Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah in attack.

Harvey Elliott will not be available until next year.
