Trent Alexander-Arnold is hoping to play for Liverpool when they meet West Ham United on Sunday.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has not yet resumed full training after suffering a hamstring injury. But the right back was back on the pitch on Wednesday. The players were put through their paces in preparation for Thursday’s Europa League match against LASK.

In the early game of the day at the Raiffeisen Arena, Liverpool will face the Austrian team to open their European campaign. Although much discussion has surrounded about how strong Jurgen Klopp will go in a group that they are expecting to win easily.

Liverpool right-back hoping to make a comeback before the match against West Ham

As he continues to heal from his hip injury, Thiago Alcantara was absent from today’s training session. Liverpool Vice-captain Trent Alexander-Arnold, though, was working on a custom training programme in preparation for a potential comeback this weekend.

On the grass, away from the larger group, the defender was observed doing some light work by himself. There is a “50/50” possibility that Alexander-Arnold will participate in this weekend’s Premier League game. Although it is clear that he is hoping to push for fitness ahead of that contest against West Ham. In the coming days, a more thorough evaluation will happen.

Quansah got his full debut over the weekend, starting alongside Joel Matip. But he was pulled off late as Liverpool came back to win in the Black Country after a terrible first half.

Ibrahima Konate, who recently played at Molineux, was also active. However, he prepares to start for the first time since beating Bournemouth last month on Thursday. Additionally, captain Virgil van Dijk, who hasn’t appeared since being sent off against Newcastle on August 27, might possibly play.

At the AXA Training Centre, players like Ryan Gravenberch, a recent addition to Liverpool, and Stefan Bajcetic competed for the opportunity to make their season debuts.

Ben Doak also had a spot after sitting out the Under-21 team’s 3-0 victory against Morecambe on Tuesday night in the EFL Cup in order to prepare for Thursday’s match. The young Scot renewed his contract with the team earlier this week. He will be eager to cap off a significant week by playing some senior European football.
