Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Thiago Alcantara is expected to be out until after the international break with a calf injury.
The Spaniard pulled up with the problem during last weekend’s victory over Crystal Palace and was already ruled out of the upcoming Premier League clash with Brentford.
It was initially unclear how long Thiago’s issue would have kept him out for, but Klopp has not been able to provide a positive update on the midfielder’s condition.
Speaking to the media during his pre-match press conference, Klopp said: “It’s a muscle in the calf. It is not 100% clear when he will back. After the international break probably. I don’t think it will be any earlier.”
The Reds are also without Harvey Elliott for several months following his serious ankle injury, while Naby Keita is also confirmed to be missing the clash with Thomas Frank‘s men.
