Jurgen Klopp’s team is suffering from a slew of injuries.
Liverpool began the new Premier League season with a 2-2 draw away at newly promoted Fulham, and their day was made worse by an injury to midfielder Thiago. After what appeared to be a minor incident, the Spaniard limped off the field just six minutes into the second half.
The Reds’ injury list is already lengthy, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas, and Ibrahima Konate all out, and Naby Keita only recently returning from illness.
What have the Reds said about Thiago?
Liverpool has not revealed the extent of Thiago’s injury, only that he “will undergo further assessment to determine the severity of it [the injury].”
The Reds have more than a week until their next Premier League match. Crystal Palace will be the first Premier League team to visit Anfield this season, with the match scheduled for August 15.
Following that, the Merseyside team will face Manchester United at Old Trafford on August 22, followed by a home game against Bournemouth five days later before welcoming Newcastle to Anfield on August 31.
