Arthur makes Liverpool return in under-21s clash

Having not played for Liverpool since September, Arthur made his return from injury in the Reds’ Under-21s clash with Leicester City.

Arthur marked his return from injury by starting Liverpool Under-21s’ Premier League 2 Division One clash with Leicester City on Saturday.

It was the Brazil international’s first Reds appearance in any form since September, with a long-term thigh injury sidelining the Juventus loanee.

Arthur has played just 13 minutes of senior football since joining Liverpool from the Bianconeri, appearing as a late substitute in the Champions League defeat by Napoli, while he has also appeared twice for the under-21s side.

The 26-year-old started in the heart of midfield for the under-21s, who were aiming to end a run of three matches without a win.

Liverpool have the right to buy Arthur, who spent two years with Barcelona prior to joining Juventus in June 2020, with the option entailing a reported £32.3million (€37.5m) fee to be paid at the end of the season.
