Thiago could miss Arsenal’s clash with Liverpool in a fortnight, after suffering an injury ahead of the League Cup final on Sunday.
The Athletic report that Thiago will have a scan on the injury today, feeling tightness in his hamstring.
According to David Maddock of The Mirror, a mild strain would see Thiago miss 1-2 weeks, but anything more serious could leave him out for months.
Arsenal will therefore be eyeing the results with interest, given they face Liverpool in 16 days’ time.
If Thiago gets good news, he could well feature in that match, but if it’s even a partial tear then that would rule him out.
Liverpool will have a strong side out regardless. After all, they won the League Cup in spite of Thiago’s absence, against a Chelsea side above Arsenal in the table.
The Gunners will take all the help they can get though, and with Thiago’s strong recent form it would definitely be a blow to Liverpool to lose him for any serious length of time.
