Liverpool are hopeful the injury Thiago Alcantara sustained during Saturday’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace is not serious.

The midfielder picked up a calf issue during the second half of the Anfield encounter and was forced from the field.

However, Jürgen Klopp told his post-match press conference the Reds are optimistic it’s only a minor injury.

“The only little bit that overshadowed [the game] was Thiago, but we hope it is not serious,” said the manager. “He felt his calf and now we hope really it is not that serious.”
