Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has provided a worrying injury update on Thiago Alcantara after he was the recipient of a poor tackle from Richarlison during Saturday’s entertaining Merseyside Derby.

The clash at Goodison Park ended 2-2, and it was not without incident, as all four goals were backed up with the drama of a late red card for Everton’s Richarlison.

The Brazilian was sent off for a rash challenge on the highly impressive Thiago in the 90th minute as both sides hunted for a winner.

Understandably, the Spanish midfielder came off much worse from the tackle, and Klopp has admitted that he may have picked up an injury from the horror challenge.

“Our goals were brilliant,” he said. “I leave the pitch and Thiago tells me he thinks he was injured from Richarlison.

“In the dressing room, others with the laptop watch the situation back and we don't understand it."

Klopp told BT Sport of Thiago’s situation: "Difficult, difficult at the moment because the red card for Richarlison, it's not only a red card for Everton it's a massive foul on Thiago as well.

"Thiago has a proper knock there, he has ice now, we don't know what he has, it looks not good, to be honest."

BT Sport pundits and former Liverpool and Everton players Peter Crouch and Leon Osman condemned the tackle live on air.

"It's nasty this one,” Crouch said. “Thiago has done well to get back up from this. It's a potential leg-breaker."

Osman added of the incident: "From our initial view we didn't realise the severity.

It's only when you see it from a different angle, the view the referee has got, that you see exactly what the tackle is.

"It's is a terrible tackle."

Thiago wasn't the only Liverpool player to suffer an injury scare, with Virgil van Dijk also having to leave the pitch in the first-half following a collision with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
