Jurgen Klopp hints at injury worry for Thiago following Richarlison horror tackle

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is worried that Thiago Alcantara could be facing a spell on the sidelines after Richarlison’s horror tackle on him during their 2-2 draw against Everton.

The Toffees man slid in dangerously on the Spanish midfielder late on and was giving his marching orders as a result.

Thiago did appear to be ok, and managed to finish the game without any issues.

But speaking to BT Sport at full-time, Klopp suggested he may have a worse injury than first feared.

“The red card from Richarlison, it’s not only a red card for Everton it’s a massive foul on Thiago as well,” Klopp said.

“Thiago has a proper knock there, he has ice now, we don’t know what he has, it looks not good, to be honest.”

Liverpool could now be facing something of an injury crisis after defender Virgil van Dijk had to go off just ten minutes in after Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford clattered into him.

There was some bemusement that Pickford was not sent off for the incident, and Liverpool were also hard done by when what looked like a last-minute winner from Jordan Henderson was ruled out for offside.

Reacting to both decisions, Klopp added: “With the injury of Virgil van Dijk, that’s pretty early in the game.

“I didn’t see it back but it took a while so obviously it was not too big, the offside.Then Pickford kicks him completely.

“I didn’t see it back, so you maybe can say more about this.

“The only decision I saw back was now, only briefly in the dressing room, the Henderson goal and the pass for Sadio, and I didn’t see offside, sorry.

“Maybe somebody can explain it to me because the picture I saw was not offside.

“But it was offside because somebody decided it was.”
