PREMIER - Liverpool, hard blow for Thiago Alcantara
Injured during the victory of Liverpool against Crystal Palace (3-0) this weekend, Thiago Alcantara (30) had to give up his place at the hour mark. Touched in the calf, the midfielder of the Reds should miss Liverpool's next two games, according to the words of his assistant coach Pepijn Lijnders relayed on Monday on the club's website.
Therefore, the Spanish international (46 caps, 2 goals), will be absent in the League Cup on Tuesday for the match against Norwich and next weekend in the Premier League against Brentford.
In addition, it should be noted that Trent Alexander-Arnold, ill, and Roberto Firmino, in recovery, will also miss the League Cup match.
