Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to be given a chance to impress Gareth Southgate when England take on Kosovo on Tuesday night.
Kieran Trippier was favoured to Trent for Saturday’s game against Bulgaria despite struggling with Spurs last season.
But according to the Times, the youngster will be brought back into the starting line-up for his nation’s fourth qualifier.
Trent is expected to actively involve himself in England’s attacking play rather than simply getting the ball to the wingers.
Helpfully for Liverpool, the game is in Southampton rather than overseas, meaning Trent, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, will be able to make a relatively swift return to Merseyside.
Gomez was left on the bench at the weekend but has a chance of replacing Michael Keane or Harry Maguire for this one.
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s lively cameo could be enough to earn him a start.
Henderson, meanwhile, might he handed a rest to make room for Mason Mount or James Maddison.
Elsewhere, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho could be in action for Brazil overnight as they face Peru.
There’ll be mixed feelings for Reds fans, some of whom want our prayers wrapped in proverbial cotton wool, while others would like to see their club performances get the recognition they deserve.
