Liverpool's Pep Lijnders gives an update on injuries ahead of Arsenal clash

Thiago Alcantara and Divock Origi will be unavailable until after the international break.

Assistant manager Pep Lijnders hands injury updates ahead of Liverpool’s semi-final second-leg clash against Arsenal on Thursday night at the Emirates.

He gives an update on three players in Thiago Alcantara, Divock Origi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sustained a knee injury against Brentford and is expected to be sidelined for a couple of games.

On the other hand, Thiago and Origi has been out for a while and is only expected to return after the international break.

Thiago’s last encounter was against a 3-1 victory over Newcastle in December after which he tested positive before picking up an injury in training.

Lijnders said ahead of the Arsenal game: “Thiago hopefully he will be in full team training after the international break to prepare the Cardiff City game.

“Divock will be only after Cardiff.

“He [Oxlade-Chamberlain] feels okay, it’s not that bad and he’s really hoping that he will make the weekend but for tomorrow [against Arsenal] it will be way too soon”.
