Trent Alexander-Arnold and Diogo Jota available for Watford vs Liverpool |  Football news

Liverpool duo Trent Alexander-Arnold and Diogo Jota are expected to be available for the club’s Premier League fixture against Watford on Saturday.

Right-back Alexander-Arnold suffered from a muscle problem ahead of the international break, which left him out of the 5-1 win at Porto and the 2-2 draw at home against Manchester City.

Portugal striker Jota was sent home early in the game after a muscle problem preventing him from training before his country’s victory over Qatar last Saturday.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said on the club’s official website: “They’re all good, they’re all in a good way, let me put it like that.

Diogo Jota was unable to take part in Portugal’s matches with Qatar and Luxembourg during the international break

“So it really looks like Trent and Diogo are doing fine, they will be training with us tomorrow quite normally, that’s the plan.”

Midfielder Thiago Alcantara continues to recover from a calf injury and Klopp has confirmed that the Spaniard will likely miss the trip to Vicarage Road.

“And the rest [of the] international [players], some are back, some are obviously not back yet. And we’ll see. “
