Jurgen Klopp spoke yesterday about Thiago and the influence he hopes the Spaniard will have on the team in the upcoming weeks.
The boss said Thiago is ‘like a new signing’ and that the fact he’s fully fit and performing well in training is brilliant and relieves some ‘pressure’ off his team-mates.
We hope the Spaniard starts in midfield against Manchester United tomorrow.
With Joel Matip able to start alongside Fabinho at the back, we can field Thiago in his favoured deep-lying playmaker role, with Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson either side.
That’s a team with an exceptional spine, with Alisson in the net and Roberto Firmino centrally up top.
