Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara is having surgery on a troublesome hip injury in order to ensure he is fit for pre-season. The Spaniard was absent for two months with the problem and although he made a brief comeback in April he has missed the last two matches and the club have decided it is best for him to get it sorted now. "Thiago will have surgery and is out for the rest of the season," said Jurgen Klopp. "It's the same issue he was recently out for a couple of months with." Asked whether he would be ready for pre-season the manager added: "Yeah. That is why we do it now."

Liverpool are awaiting the results of a scan on fellow midfielder Jordan Henderson but he could miss the visit of Brentford with the minor problem. "Hendo I have to see; a scan yesterday will not be a big thing but maybe enough to rule him out tomorrow."
