Liverpool have been incredibly unlucky with injuries in the past year or so. The Reds have suffered fitness blow after fitness blow. Jürgen Klopp’s side finally appeared to be back on the right track at the start of the season but now we’re already missing key players. Liverpool fans are alarmed to see that Thiago is on crutches.
Season to forget
Last term is a season that will live long in the memory no matter how much Kopites try to forget it.
It will forever be known as the most nothing, the most forgettable, drag of a season.
No fans in the ground and not enough first team players on the pitch.
Liverpool stars dropped like flies throughout the campaign with every senior centre back ruled out due to injury and key forwards and midfielders also sidelined.
As a result, finishing third was a miracle.
Thiago on crutches
Already we’ve seen key players ruled out this season.
For instance, in the draw against Chelsea it was Roberto Firmino who limped off, he returned as a substitute against Brentford.
During the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace our Spanish playmaker was forced off.
In addition, Thiago has now been photographed on crutches as Knowsley Safari Park.
The boss has confirmed that the ex-Bayern Munich man won’t be back until after the international break due to a calf injury.
This means that we’ll be without his calming presence in the middle when we face Manchester City.
Kopites are worried by the photo. However, some are optimistic, pointing out that it’s normal to keep the weight off a muscle injury.
