Liverpool fans 'in tears' at Thiago training footage with star to miss Arsenal


Liverpool fans were left in tears as Thiago Alcantara showed what they would be missing as the Spaniard has been ruled out of the Arsenal game due to injury.

The midfielder blew Reds supporters away with his first 45 minutes for the club since arriving from Bayern Munich, breaking a Premier League record against Chelsea.

But the 29-year-old is facing a battle to be available for the Anfield clash as he requires a late fitness test.

And footage has emerged from the latest training which shows what the Premier League champions will be missing as they look to make it three wins from three.

In the clip, the squad are running a game between themselves at Melwood, with Thiago on the side in yellow bibs.

The Spaniard runs to challenge for the ball on the right wing and gets there first, nudging it to one side to avoid a challenge from Sadio Mane.

And the midfielder’s second touch sees him loop the ball over the defence to send youngster Sepp van den Berg clear on the opposite wing.

This footage was shared on Reddit at the weekend, where the Anfield faithful were left feeling gutted they would not see Thiago strut his stuff against Arsenal.

“Thiago, what a thing of beauty,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “That Thiago pass was beautiful.”

While a third could not contain their emotions, with: “Man, Thiago with the flair touches – brought a tear to my eye.”

And a fourth added: “Thiago control and first touch are mind boggling. Utterly effortless, what a player.”

With a fifth simply writing: “Thiago just oozes class.”

It comes as Mane has made a big prediction about Thiago’s impact on his new team-mates.

“I think not only the fans are excited to see Thiago,” said the Senegalese. “For sure, especially me and my teammates were really happy to have this kind of quality in our squad. It only makes us better.

“I can see from day one in training and the game against Chelsea what he is doing. I’m sure he will take us to another level, for sure.”
