Liverpool’s Thiago Alcantara to miss at least 2 games due to calf injury

Thiago Alcantara to miss at least 2 games due to calf injury. The 30-year-old picked up the injury in Saturday’s 3-0 win against Crystal Palace and the Reds will examine scans to discover the extent of the damage.

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara will miss a minimum of two matches with a calf problem. Liverpool visit Norwich City in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday before a league trip to Brentford on Saturday.

“I can’t say now how long it will take, but not Tuesday and not the weekend,” said Reds assistant Pep Lijnders.¬†“Let’s get the scan results back and we have a proper diagnosis.

“A shame as well because he was taking the game [against Palace] by the hand, he was a proper playmaker in my opinion. A shame that we miss him.”

Thiago was replaced by Naby Keita after 62 minutes in the win over the Eagles at Anfield.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold also missed the game against Palace through illness and will again be absent at Norwich, while forward Roberto Firmino has resumed training after missing three matches with a hamstring injury.
