Liverpool fans lament Clyne loan after Alexander-Arnold injury

Liverpool fans lament Clyne loan after Alexander-Arnold injury

When Liverpool allowed Nathaniel Clyne to leave the club on loan, it’s fair to say one or two eyebrows were raised.

With Joe Gomez already out injured, the Reds were just one Trent Alexander-Arnold injury away from being particularly short of natural options at right-back - and now their worst fears have been realised.

Alexander-Arnold looks set to miss the best part of a month through injury, leaving Jurgen Klopp to juggle with makeshift options in his squad, rather than being able to call upon 14-cap England international Clyne.

The 27-year-old is set to spend the rest of the season at Bournemouth, having been allowed to leave the club to get some regular first-team action, but would have now been given an extended run in the Liverpool side.

James Milner, Fabinho and Rafael Camacho are the current options to occupy the role, with Liverpool set to face Crystal Palace, Leicester, West Ham and Bournemouth in Alexander-Arnold’s absence, before a huge double header against Bayern Munich and Manchester United. Liverpool are hopeful the 20-year-old will be back for those fixtures.

Read below to see some of the best reactions to Alexander-Arnold’s injury and the decision to allow their ready-made replacement to leave on loan.
