Liverpool have just got a timely and major boost with Thiago Alcantara having finished his period of self-isolation.
The silky midfielder tested positive for coronavirus last month and was forced to undertake a mandatory 10-day quarantine.
Liverpool released a statement when the setback first surfaced 11 days ago, and Thiago now appears ready for a return to action after posting pictures of himself walking around the city centre on social media.
The positive result also saw the summer signing from Bayern Munich miss out on Spain’s Nations League fixtures.
Thiago had been due to report for international duty this month ahead of clashes against Switzerland and Ukraine.
The 29-year-old has since returned a negative result, however, while with his national team.
Jurgen Klopp’s men return to action after the break with a Merseyside derby against Everton next Saturday – and the Switzerland international will be ready and raring for selection.
