Thiago Alcantara has never played on Anfield as a Red before, and could do so for the first time against Manchester United this Sunday in the Premier League.

Thiago Alcantara has been unlucky since joining Liverpool at the start of the season. Between coronavirus and injury, the Spaniard has only played 5 games since September.

Five games, all played away (Chelsea, Everton, Newcastle, Southampton and Aston Villa). The midfielder has yet to play his first minutes as Red at Anfield.

One thing that could change this Sunday, when Liverpool clash at home against Manchester United. A decisive shock for Klopp’s men, to try to regain the lead in the English championship.

The possibility that he will be aligned from the outset on Sunday is not to be ruled out. At a press conference, Jürgen Klopp spoke about Thiago’s form and his debut on the Anfield lawn.

“We’ll see. The most important thing is that he’s in good shape, that he’s training. He’s played 90 and 45 minutes in the last two games. So we’ll see if he can play, and What position, because there are obviously different options. But it’s a good thing that he’s with us, because he’s a good guy and he’s a great player, “said Jürgen Klopp.
