The date for the return of Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold from injury has been set according to the latest reports from the stables of the Liverpool Echo. Barring any injury setback, Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to return to the Liverpool squad ahead of the Champions League trip to play Danish topflight team FC Midtjylland in a matchday six clash on December 9.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has not played for either club or country since he sustained a calf injury during the league trip to Manchester City shortly before the international break earlier this month. He was subbed off for veteran player James Milner in the second half of the game as a result of the calf problem. The England international was then ruled out for at least a month due to the aforementioned calf injury.

Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah scored from the penalty spot to give the Reds an early lead before Gabriel Jesus equalized for hosts Manchester City to earn his team a 1-1 draw during that game. The Citizens could have gotten more from the game if not for the missed penalty by skipper for the game, Kevin De Bruyne.

Trent Alexander-Arnold missed the three England games in November because of the calf injury. He had been named in the England squad for those three games before picking up the injury at the Etihad Stadium. The Three Lions played the Iceland, Belgium and the Republic of Ireland games without the Liverpool Academy graduate. He has also missed the two Liverpool games since the international break ended this month.
Trent Alexander-Arnold was an obvious absentee as Liverpool beat Leicester City 3-0 at home in a Premier League played on Sunday night to derail the Foxes from their previous position as top team in the league. He also missed the 2-0 home loss to Atalanta FC of Italy in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
