After picking up knocks earlier in the week, Thiago Alcantara and Alisson Becker were both absent from training on Saturday.
They will now face a fight against time to prove their fitness ahead of the 8 pm kickoff. Or else, Liverpool could be missing the pair for this evening’s Premier League clash with Arsenal at Anfield.
Following a record-breaking 45-minute cameo against Chelsea last weekend, Thiago was supposed to make his full debut for Liverpool.
But now, both players would be placed through late fitness checks.
And with Alisson there is slightly greater doubt, because the training on Friday was also skipped according to The Independent.
As his side seek to make it three wins out of three at the start of their Premier League title defence, Jurgen Klopp will also be without captain Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Matip for the game.
A big concern, too, is James Milner, but Joe Gomez is expected to return after missing last weekend’s win over Chelsea.
