Liverpool dealt major blow as $40mn player side-lined for 1 month

Due to an injury, Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara may not play again until March.

Thiago Alcantara is allegedly out for a month due to an injury, dealing Liverpool another setback.

The Merseyside giants are presently ranked 10th in the Premier League rankings after a disastrous domestic season.

Jurgen Klopp has struggled with selection because of multiple big injuries to key players, despite the fact that a number of important players have underperformed.

While Virgil van Dijk hasn’t played since January 2 due to a hamstring injury, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota haven’t played much in the final third.

A few players have returned to practise ahead of the Everton match, but Klopp stated on Friday that Thiago was a doubt for the game. 

The Spaniard reportedly hurt his hip earlier in the week, keeping him from practising in the days leading up to their rivals’ match.

Thiago will, however, miss more than just Monday’s game at Anfield, according to The Telegraph.

The 31-year-old might not return to the field until the middle of next month, according to the report.

Eight games, including two matches against Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16, are on the calendar for Liverpool up through and including March 15.

Even though Thiago is known to have had fitness concerns in the past, he has started 22 games and played as a substitute twice this season.
