Liverpool will be without midfielder Thiago Alcantara for Sunday’s crunch Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Thiago has been absent ever since Richarlison’s crunching tackle in the Merseyside derby that led to a straightred card for the Brazilian.

The knee injury has meant that he’s missed all three of the Reds’ Champions League matches thus far, as well as the Premier League victories over Sheffield United and West Ham.

Indeed, the signs looked ominous with theformer Bayern Munich star having not trained at Melwood on Thursday and Klopp has now revealed that the game with City comes too soon for the 29-year-old.
