Mo Salah sees a revenge mission against Real Madrid in Paris, however, the injury to Thiago puts Liverpool in deep trouble.
The Reds just came short by a single point to grab the Premier League title. Despite Liverpool eventually grinding out the win, City’s amazing comeback from two goals down sees them lift the Premier League title.
Liverpool finishes second by just a single point, breaking the 90-point mark and ending up empty-handed once again.
But seriously, how good this two have been all season. What a pair of teams at the top of the Premier League.
Salah sends a message to Real Madrid, furthermore, the injury to Thiago injury scares Liverpool
Mo Salah limped out of the FA Cup final and was absent against Southampton and was seen taking a sit on the bench on Sunday. With both Liverpool and Wolves tied at 1-1, the Egyptian came into the pitch, and guess what he scored the crucial goal in the 84th minute.
The goal was his first in eight games, meanwhile, it was his 31st goal of the season. Besides, he also won the Premier Golden Boot award along with Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son.
Clearly, the goal definitely boosts his confidence going into the final in Paris. Like, he said earlier he has “a score to settle”.
Thiago’s injury concern grows
The Spaniard played a big part in Liverpool’s equalizer against Wolves. His sumptuous back flick to divert Ibrahima Konate’s pass into the path of Sadio Mane for the equalizer.
But right before the halftime whistle, he came off which brought a lot of tension among the Liverpool fans as he could miss the Champions League final.
With Fabinho missing in the number 6 role, and now Thiago’s injury puts Liverpool surely on the backfoot. Thiago has been an integral part of the Reds’ midfield in the later stage of the season. The cool and calm maestro’s intelligence gives a new dimension to the team.
Meanwhile, Klopp discusses the injury:
I think he’ll be out of the final but I don’t know. He’s limping, so it’s maybe not the best sign.
The German also explains when asked about the troubling part:
Lower part of the body. I know what it is but don’t want to say.
If Thiago is to miss the final against Real Madrid, would be a massive miss for Liverpool. The Spaniard’s knowledge of facing such old rivals could be the kind of small detail on which such encounters are determined.
