Thiago Alcantara will miss this afternoon’s Premier League fixture with Tottenham Hotspur after registering a suspected positive test for COVID-19.

The midfielder is now isolating and will play no part in the encounter in London.

In addition, Jordan Henderson is also absent because of illness. The captain has registered a negative test for COVID-19, but has been withdrawn from selection due to feeling unwell.

All of the Reds’ first-team squad and staff have been tested for COVID-19 on Saturday as well as this morning, with no further positive cases detected, which includes Henderson.
