If there was ever a game that Liverpool needed the footballing brain and velvet touch of Thiago Alcântara, it was during the drab 0-0 draw against Arsenal at Anfield.

The Gunners essentially surrendered all possession of the ball to the hosts when Granit Xhaka was sent off for, well, being Xhaka, early in the first half.

Arsenal hung on at times, but everything was in front of them, and Liverpool didn’t create the plethora of chances they usually do.

Therefore, if Thiago’s injury problems persist, Klopp and Liverpool may need to seek alternatives, someone in the Thiago mould who can stay fit and has the ability to open up the opposition.

But the game against Arsenal demonstrated that when teams sit deep and restrict space, Liverpool struggle.

The following 66 minutes saw Liverpool carry out a training drill: defence against attack.

The 30-year-old has missed the last five games, first through Covid and now due to a hip injury, and Klopp had to shut down rumours that his latest injury could keep him out for the remainder of the season.
