Liverpool Suffer Injury Woe As Thiago Alcantra Ruled Out For Six Weeks. Thiago Alcantara was forced off injured during Liverpool’s 2-2 opening-day Premier League draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage. The medical report has not yet been released, but it is expected that he will miss the next six weeks of action.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Thiago has a hamstring injury and will miss the next six games for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, including matches against Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Newcastle United, Everton, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Thiago, who has 46 La Roja caps and two goals for his country, will be infuriated by this latest injury setback because it will hurt his chances of making Luis Enrique’s squad for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar. That kicks off in November.
Since joining Liverpool from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2020, the Spaniard with Brazilian ancestry has made 71 appearances for the English club, and in his second season, he helped them win their first league title in 30 years.
