Thiago Alcantara set for a longer time in the sidelines

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara is set for a longer time in the sidelines after missing the team’s 1-1 draw against Brighton on Saturday.

It was thought that the summer signing would be available for selection for The Reds in the game following a time out but that wasn’t the case.

Asked if the Spaniard and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be available for selection in their next outing against Wolves and Ajax, Klopp said: "I don't want to tell Ajax and Wolves too much, but I don't think so."

Thiago has been plagued by injury since his summer arrival from Bayern Munich Munich and has only managed two appearances for his new club.

Klopp also confirmed James Milner suffered a hamstring injury in the lunchtime clash on the south coast, telling talkSPORT the midfielder is ‘absolutely not cool’.
