Thiago suffered a fresh injury vs Arsenal after recovering from a previous ailment

Since joining Liverpool in 2020, Thiago has missed more games due to injury (102) than he has played (98).

The injury that the Spanish international sustained against Arsenal will keep him out of action. Thiago made a welcome comeback to the matchday squad at the Emirates after missing over ten months due to a hip injury. The Gunners defeated Liverpool 3-1 to harm their hopes of winning the title.

With five minutes left in regular time, Thiago was substituted for Joe Gomez during the second half of the team’s loss to Mikel Arteta’s squad. In his brief cameo, the Bayern Munich player made ten passes and had ten touches of the ball.

“Thiago, obviously, is not cool. Everything looked absolutely fantastic in training. We showed quite a lot of things, I think, on LFCTV so you can see the training moments and it looks outstanding so you think, ‘Come on, take him, we have the opportunity, let him play a few minutes’,” quotes Klopp as saying.

“It’s a muscle issue, we don’t know the extent yet. We have to wait there a little bit, but it’s not cool, of course. It was really not good news for him, for us, for everybody. On top of losing the game already and having that is not good.

“Yes [I expect him to play again this season], but we didn’t really think about that, in the moment we just treat the injury and get a full assessment done and knowing exactly where it came from. It’s not the intensity and stuff like this, so there are different things.

“It’s just the normal procedure and it would not be a big story if he wouldn’t have been out for that long a time. That’s how it is. It’s not a big, big injury, definitely not, but it’s something nobody needed.”

But earlier this week, there were whispers that the 32-year-old had suffered a muscular injury against Arsenal and would be sidelined for a while. At the news conference on Friday, Klopp acknowledged that the speculations were accurate.

Although Thiago will be unable to play for Liverpool when Burnley visits Anfield on Saturday, Klopp has emphasised that the midfielder’s most recent injury is not serious and that he hopes to see the Spaniard play for the Reds again during the coming season.
