According to freelance Liverpool correspondent David Lynch, via Watch LFC, Thiago Alcantara is facing a lengthy wait on the sidelines and will not be returning to Jurgen Klopp’s starting line up until January – prompting many Reds to discuss the ‘very sad‘ update.
Thiago, who was signed as a high-profile acquisition in the summer from Bayern Munich, has been on the treatment table after suffering a knee injury after a poor challenge from Richarlison in the Merseyside Derby – with Klopp recently stating that the impact sustained on his knee was not good.
Should Liverpool have signed Thiago?
Yes, he's world class
No, too injury prone
Now, as relayed by Lynch, Thiago faces a recovery on the sidelines and won’t be back until after the New Year – prompting many Reds to flock as their injury list was just starting to ease.
Indeed, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Naby Keita are nearing a return, as confirmed by the Reds boss, but Thiago’s reintroduction looks to be a while off yet.

Good news but the Everton player was very unprofessional with that tackle. Thiago is fortune his leg was not broken. I think the Everton players came to play rugby against Liverpool that day. Two Liverpool players serious juried in one game. Utter madness.
