"It always worked out pretty well for me as a manager when I had the opportunity to do it, to be 100 per cent focused, have a couple of meetings".

"We'd have done it if we were 10 points up".

"But four to six weeks [for his] return to play, hopefully that's the case, we work on that".

Alexander-Arnold has not featured since injuring his knee on January 12, while Henderson and Wijnaldum missed Monday's draw at West Ham United due to minor issues.

As reported on the official club website, defender Dejan Lovren remains sidelined with a muscle injury.
