Thiago Alcantara injury: Liverpool ace had worrying chat with Klopp after Everton draw

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Thiago Alcantara may have suffered an injury in the 2-2 draw with Everton. The £20million man was on the end of a horror challenge late in the second half from Richarlison, who was shown a straight red by Michael Oliver.

Thiago was making his first Liverpool start following his summer switch from Bayern Munich.

He enjoyed an impressive afternoon across Stanley Park but was given a rude awakening to the physicality of the Premier League.

Richarlison smashed into the top of his leg and while Thiago was able to walk away from the challenge, it appears he may have picked up a problem.

Klopp said after the game: “As I was leaving the pitch, Thiago tells me that in the red card situation with Richarlison he thinks he has got injured.

“We will see whether it is true or not. The player felt like this and we will have to take a look.”

Speaking to BT Sport, the German again hinted that Thiago may be set for a spell on the sidelines.

“It’s not just a red card on Thiago, it’s a messy foul and now we don’t know what [injury] he has. It looks not good to be honest,” he said.
