Liverpool dealt Thiago injury blow ahead of League Cup & Brentford clashes

Liverpool dealt Thiago injury blow ahead of League Cup & Brentford clashes

Norwich vs Liverpool

Liverpool are back in League Cup action on Tuesday evening.

The Reds do not have a great record in the competition under Jurgen Klopp, who generally uses it to rest his key players for other games.

However, even with a weak side out on the pitch, Liverpool fans will still likely fancy their chances of getting something against their 3rd round opponents this time out.

Liverpool will face off with Norwich at Carrow Road. The Canaries have had a simply dismal start to their domestic season and, though it is only early, it once again looks as though Norwich are set for a swift return to the Championship in 2021/22.

They have failed to pick up a single point in the English top-flight so far this campaign and have conceded the most goals in the division, 14.

Thiago injury blow

Ahead of Tuesday’s game, Liverpool have confirmed they have been dealt a blow on the personnel front.

The Merseysiders have already lost Harvey Elliot to injury vs Leeds, and now, the club have confirmed that Thiago will miss both the League Cup meeting with Norwich and their Premier League clash with Brentford later this week, after the Spaniard is said to have sustained a calf injury during the win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Thiago will be sidelined for both of our matches this week as a result of the calf injury he sustained at the weekend.
