TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD will miss Liverpool's FA Cup third round clash with Shrewsbury after testing positive for Covid.
The right-back did not feature in the Reds' starting XI when it was released before kick-off.
And Liverpool confirmed Alexander-Arnold had received a positive test result in the wake of last weekend's 2-2 draw at Chelsea.
A statement on Twitter read: "Trent is missing after registering a suspected positive COVID test shortly after Chelsea.
"He is expected to return to training in the coming days."
But one man who will be present at the FA Cup game is Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
He is back in the dugout after a period of self-isolation after testing positive for Covid.
Liverpool were forced to shut down their training base last week following an outbreak amongst players and staff.
