Liverpool suffered awfully with injuries last season. The Reds lost star after star to the treatment table as a litany of absences piled up. Jürgen Klopp was forced to rummage around the squad to field a side at times. Things haven’t started perfectly this term either. Liverpool fans have reacted to the latest Thiago injury news.
Fitness curse persists
At times last season the Reds appeared cursed.
Jürgen Klopp lost scores of first team stars, even replacements were injured and then the replacements’ replacements were injured.
It all started with Virgil van Dijk, the Dutchman ruled out for the season after the Merseyside Derby. Thereafter they piled up.
This term has provided no respite.
For instance Roberto Firmino has already been out for a spell after picking up a problem against Chelsea.
In addition, another reckless challenge has caused a long term casualty with Harvey Elliott’s horror injury to keep him out for most of the season.
Then there is the Thiago injury which was picked up against Crystal Palace.
Thiago injury news
The Reds thumped Crystal Palace 3-0 at the weekend.
Having said that, we won through set-pieces. The score line may have been a tad flattering.
However, one major downside from the tie was seeing our Spanish playmaker limp off.
Pep Lijnders has delivered some Thiago injury news and it’s a bit worrying.
The Dutchman has said that the midfielder will miss the next two games whilst we await the results of scans.
Fans are remembering all too well how often Thiago’s absence was extended around this time last season.
