Touched a calf during Liverpool's victory against Crystal Palace on September 18 (3-0), Thiago Alcantara (30) was not present in the League Cup on Tuesday for the match won against Norwich (3- 0) and the Spanish international midfielder (46 caps, 2 goals) does not seem close to a return to believe the words of his coach Jurgen Klopp present, this Friday morning, at a press conference.

“The date of Thiago's return is not yet 100% clear. It's a muscle problem in a calf, so after the international break probably. I don't think it's possible to see him again sooner ”. Therefore, Liverpool will have to do without the services of the former Bayern Munich player for the match in Brentford on Saturday (6.30 p.m.) but also for the match against Porto on Tuesday (9 p.m.) in the Champions League, as well as for the shock against Manchester City next Sunday (5.30 p.m.). Touched in the foot, Naby Keita will also be forfeited against the Bees and already seems uncertain for the trip to Porto.
