Alisson names Liverpool duo will give 'power and strength' to squad

Alisson Becker has said the return of Thiago Alcantara and Luis Diaz will be a massive boost for Liverpool in their final Premier League fixtures.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the Brazilian international claimed that the Liverpool pair’s return from injury will be huge in the run-in for the season, with Thiago appearing for the Reds off the bench this weekend against Arsenal with Diaz set to make his comeback later this month.

Alisson said on the Liverpool duo returning from injury: “Thiago is back today as well, it was a great thing. Luis [Diaz] is close as well. Good to have those players back, they give power and strength for the team, and quality. We take these things and carry on.”

Thiago and Diaz had been key for Liverpool before their injuries, and with Alisson now talking up their returns to the squad, the Reds could soon have their best team yet for the season with the pair on the cusp of making a full comeback from the treatment room.

Indeed, having drawn 2-2 against the league leaders Arsenal on Sunday, Liverpool now have the perfect springboard to end the season off with a bang, and Alisson is right to predict that Thiago and Diaz’s returns will give the squad more power and strength for the final matches.

Thiago and Diaz’s absences have been felt this year, with the pair’s injuries arguably playing the biggest role on Liverpool’s inconsistent form throughout the season. Yet with the duo now back, Alisson’s prediction could come true in the remaining matches.

With some winnable games coming up for the Reds, Thiago and Diaz could be key in Liverpool making that late surge for a top-four spot that many supporters have been predicting for, with Alisson himself believing that the pair will add something the team have been lacking in recent weeks.
