Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara misses training

Thiago Alcantara wasn’t pictured in training with Liverpool as they prepare to take on Benfica on Wednesday in the return leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. 

Liverpool host Benfica at Anfield tonight and have an advantage over the visitors having beaten them 3-1 in the first leg. 

The Reds could miss the services of Thiago who was nowhere to be seen as Liverpool warmed up for Wednesday’s tie at their AXA Training Centre in Kirkby, raising slight doubts over his availability for the midweek game.

Klopp did not have Roberto Firmino at his disposal for Friday’s training session, but the Brazilian was still part of the Etihad trip, and all other central midfield options appeared to have been present on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old has struggled to stay fit for the entire 2021-22 season but has managed 27 appearances in all competitions for the Reds, scoring two goals and setting up two more.
