Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold could be set to miss Sunday’s clash with Crystal Palace.

The England international, who has been nursing a knee ligament injury, was an unused substitute on Thursday night as the Reds fell to a shock 3-0 defeat to Atalanta.

However Jurgen Klopp admitted that the right-back could not have featured in the Europa League quarter final first leg: “There was no chance to play Trent.

“He was on the bench because we were allowed to put 23 players in the squad.

“He had two sessions.”

Diogo Jota, meanwhile, had been missing through injury since February, but made his return in the 76th minute on Thursday night.

Klopp added: “Diogo didn’t have more (training sessions than Alexander-Arnold) really, but information from the medical department said he’s a step ahead so he can play a little bit longer. ”

The Reds manager also said that he does not feel any pressure heading into Sunday’s Premier League action: “Well, it’s not pressure, that’s my job.

“I have to do that as much as I can do it, so that’s how it is.

“No it’s not pressure, it’s just a situation.

“My job is not the easiest job in the world, not the most difficult as well, but it’s about when you have players, you need to make sure that you get them together on the pitch, and that it works out somehow.

“And in different line-ups, we played really good football this season.”

Klopp believes his side can use Thursday’s defeat to motivate them for the upcoming visit of Crystal Palace.

“We have to show reaction definitely, 100%, that’s clear.

“We will show a reaction, I can promise.”

The Reds currently sit second in the Premier League table, level on 71 points with league leaders Arsenal, and one point above third place Manchester City.

But Klopp’s men could find themselves top of the league by the end of the weekend, if they win on Sunday and if the Gunners fail to beat top-four chasers Aston Villa.
