Thiago Alcantara has once again taken a back seat after spending a significant amount of time last year.


How many meetings does Thiago Alcantara miss?

The Reds player is set to be fired after suffering a hamstring injury in Liverpool’s PL opening game of the season. Thiago Alcantara lasted just 51 minutes of Saturday’s 2-2 draw with the Cottagers before being forced out, and initial scans have since confirmed a strained hamstring. The Spain international will undergo a second scan later this week, and any timing of his potential return will depend on how the Spaniard responds to initial treatment and rehabilitation.

The Spaniard’s injury came at a bad time for the Reds, with a host of other first-team players currently relegated to the background. And while there is no definitive timetable for his recovery – sources say it will be weeks but have suggested Thiago Alcantara could be back quickly if treatment goes well – the player will almost certainly be out until the end of August, missing games against Crystal Palace, Man Utd, Bournemouth and Newcastle in the process. The Merseyside derby against Everton at Goodison Park on 3 September could also come too early.

After the Fulham match, Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp said that this is not a good situation, he does not like it at all, but they should see how they react to it – but definitely not panic. Jurgen will welcome back Kostas Tsimikas and Naby Keita this week after illness and injury respectively, but still without Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Caoimhin Kelleher and new signing Calvin Ramsay as his headaches appear in the beginning of the campaign.


A little about the topic

As it stands, club sources say the Reds’ business is done in terms of revenue, though injuries to Ibrahima Konate and Thiago Alcantara in particular have been poorly timed. After the Fulham draw, the Liverpool manager insisted that any transfer would have to make sense, both now and in the long term. Previously, Jurgen Klopp dismissed suggestions that the Reds are short of a midfielder, reaffirming his faith in the likes of Fabio Carvalho, Harvey Elliott and Jones, Keita.

There could be relegations before the end of the month, with defender Sepp van den Berg, midfielder Jake Kane and teen forward Max Wooltman all subject to loan interest, but Jurgen has already said the club’s injury situation could force them to reconsider the idea of ​​selling Nat Phillips, which has been interesting. clubs including Bournemouth and Fulham.
