Liverpool midfielder Thiago fighting to make Paris as scan reveals injury

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara is battling to be fit for the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Scans have shown he sustained an Achilles problem on the final day of the Premier League season.

The Spanish midfielder underwent a scan on Monday which eased fears that he suffered significant damage during Sunday's 3-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.

However, it remains unclear at this stage whether he will be fit for Saturday's showdown against Real Madrid in Paris.

The 31-year-old, who came off at half-time on Sunday, has already missed one final this season after being hurt in the warm-up before the Carabao Cup clash with Chelsea.

The Reds also face a second injury concern in midfield with Fabinho out since the 2-1 win at Aston Villa but the Brazilian is hoping to train later this week.
