Liverpool star targets Sheffield United clash for return to action

Sheffield United will take on Liverpool at Anfield on April 4

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander Arnold has set his sights on a return to action against Sheffield United despite manager Jurgen Klopp pitching a slightly later date for the full-back's comeback.

Alexander Arnold’s potential return to the Premier League against the Blades April 4 could see him make his first appearance in just under two months.

Klopp had initially pencilled in a place in the squad for the England international against Manchester United but the Telegraph are reporting that Chris Wilder's side at Anfield is the player's target.

The club will hope that the England international will make his return in the best possible time frame to reduce the risk of further injury as Alexander Arnold has already missed some hugely important matches for the Reds.

The 25-year-old has already missed the Carabao Cup final, both legs of the Europa League last 16 and matches against both the Manchester teams in the Premier League and FA Cup.

However, the match against Sheffield United will be another important fixture for the Liverpool in the tight race for the Premier League title in which the Reds and Arsenal are separated only.
