Liverpool: Paul Joyce confirms Thiago suffered a tight hamstring

Liverpool: Paul Joyce confirms Thiago suffered a tight hamstring -Liverpool News

Liverpool midfielder Thiago was ruled out of the Reds’ Carabao Cup final triumph over Chelsea because of a tight hamstring, according to reliable journalist Paul Joyce.

The Lowdown: Thiago suffers cup final heartache

Jurgen Klopp’s side secured a memorable triumph at Wembley on Sunday, beating the Blues 11-10 on penalties following a goalless draw after 120 minutes.

However, Thiago played no part in the game despite being named in the initial starting line-up, only to incur an injury during the warm-up.

The Spaniard was seen in tears on the touchline as the match got underway, leading to immediate concern regarding the severity of the issue.

The Latest: Joyce confirms extent of Thiago’s injury

According to The Times‘ Paul Joyce, Thiago suffered a ‘tight hamstring’ which deemed him unable to take part in the match.

Instead, Naby Keita took his place in midfield and largely did well.

The Verdict: Could be worse

In truth, this update could certainly have been worse, for instance if it were a torn hamstring leading to a long spell on the sidelines.

However, it is still a worry for Liverpool ahead of a huge run of fixtures, with Thiago’s fitness issues always a problem throughout his career and Klopp needing to manage him carefully.

He has only made 50 appearances for the Reds since joining nearly 18 months ago, which speaks volumes about his lack of availability.
