Liverpool hopeful of Thiago making Champions League final

Liverpool remain hopeful of Thiago Alcantara making Saturday's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

The Liverpool Echo says Thiago is a major doubt for the clash against Real Madrid in Paris on Saturday having limped off shortly before half-time in the 3-1 Premier League win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on Sunday.

The Spaniard subsequently underwent scans on an Achilles injury and while the problem isn't severe, his chances of featuring in the showpiece are considered very much in the balance.

Thiago will now undergo intensive treatment at the AXA Training Centre before a decision is made on whether he will be part of the playing squad that travels to France at the end of the week.

With Fabinho also facing a race against time to be fit for Paris having missed the last three games with a hamstring complaint, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp faces a potential midfield headache. But the availability of five substitutions could persuade the Reds boss - who will definitely be without the departing Divock Origi for the final - to take a chance on both at least on the bench.
