Thiago Alcantara out for weeks


Thiago Alcantara will be sidelined for Liverpool's next two matches as the club await scan result

The Spain international was forced off against Crystal Palace after picking up a calf injury and will now miss the Carabao Cup clash with Norwich as well as Saturday's Premier League trip to Brentford.

Assistant manager Pep Lijnders told Liverpool's official website on Monday: "Thiago, how the gaffer said after the game, it was a calf injury. I can’t say now how long it will take but definitely not tomorrow and not at the weekend.

"Let's get the scan results back and we have a proper diagnosis. A shame as well because he was taking the game by the hand, he was a proper playmaker in my opinion. A shame that we miss him.

"In one week we lose two really influential midfielders, that’s the bad thing."
