Liverpool have been dealt an injury blow with midfielder Thiago Alcantara in Sunday's Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.

The Spaniard was named in the starting lineup for the final day, but the title-chasing Reds immediately found themselves behind as Pedro Neto tapped home in the first couple of minutes.

Needing to better Manchester City's result to have a chance of clinching the title, Liverpool equalised before half time as Thiago's delicate backheel allowed Sadio Mane to run in behind and finish.

However, Thiago then appeared to injure himself after misplacing a pass to Trent Alexander-Arnold and headed straight down the tunnel before the half-time whistle blew.

Liverpool saw out the remainder of the opening period with 10 men, and Thiago did not emerge for the second half, as James Milner came into the Reds' midfield.

Jurgen Klopp may therefore be sweating over the Spain international's fitness for the Champions League final with Real Madrid, although Fabinho will return in Paris.

In spite of Liverpool's failure to head into half time with the lead, the Anfield crowd were in good spirits when learning of Matty Cash's opener for Aston Villa against City, with Steven Gerrard's side 1-0 up at the break.
