Trent Alexander-Arnold’s recovery efforts continue during the international break, with the fullback plotting a return to the pitch once domestic football resumes.
The expectation amongst commentators is that the Liverpool star could very well be back in action for the first leg of the Reds’ Champions League quarter-final meeting with Benfica.
With some work already being done on the training pitch, however, it could mean good news for the 23-year-old with regard to his potential return date and perhaps suggests an earlier date might be a possibility.
He provided an update on Instagram earlier in the week to disclose his location and offered another brief glimpse on Friday as he took to a spin bike in the gym.
There was also a couple of pictures of the 23-year-old on the pitch with boots in hand along with the caption “league it all on the grass” just nine days on from the trip to the Emirates.
But with his sponsor RedBull featuring prominently it could all be part of promotional work and not his rehab.
Nevertheless, it remains a positive update and is in line with reports that the hamstring issue is not a serious injury, with it expected that he is to feature prominently in the Reds’ relentless run throughout April.
The Premier League meeting with Man City on April 10 was signposted as the target date for his return, which if that is the case will see him miss a further two games.
