Before facing Liverpool in the talent showdown, Thiago was included in the starting lineup by manager Juergen Klopp. However, in a surprising turn of events, the Liverpool captain changed his decision, leaving many wondering why he left Thiago out at the last minute.
cakhia live 6_Liverpoolecho reveals that the German strategist made this decision because Thiago unexpectedly suffered a muscle injury during warm-up. As a result, Manager Klopp had to sideline Thiago and replace him with midfielder Naby Keita just moments before the two teams took the field.
When Thiago had to withdraw, Keita’s substitute role was handed to Harvey Elliott, the talented young player who was initially not registered to play. Going from being a mere spectator, Elliott came on to replace senior player Jordan Henderson in the 79th minute. He was one of the 11 Liverpool players who fulfilled their duties in the penalty shootout to secure victory for The Kop.
It is currently unclear how serious Thiago’s issue is, but he is likely to miss the match between Liverpool and Norwich City in the FA Cup 5th round on March 3. Thiago has always had trouble with his health, having played 20 games and scored 2 goals for Liverpool since the start of the season.
