Thiago Alcantara pulls off epic piece of skill caught on camera during Liverpool training

Thiago Alcantara is in line for his full Liverpool debut when the Reds host Arsenal on Monday night.

The £25million arrival from Bayern Munich made his debut vs Chelsea last weekend, impressing in a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

Thiago was rested for the 7-2 demolition of Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup, with the Spaniard given a full week to train under Jurgen Klopp.

The Liverpool boss revealed that he could start vs the Gunners, with Fabinho, Naby Keita, Georgino Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson all vying for spots.

“We will see, we will see,” he replied. “We have a few days to train, some boys have to recover from last night, so we will see how we set up against Arsenal.

“I have an idea, but why should I make the decision today when we have time until Monday? But he is in contention, for sure. Yeah, let’s see.”

And it looks like he has impressed in his opening days at Melwood, with the club’s social media team releasing footage of some sparkling skills.

The Tweet, captioned with: “Thiago with the ball at his feet”, has already been liked more than 10k times since posting on Friday evening.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was also full of praise for the midfielder, who he knows from his time with Barcelona.

“We don’t discuss the things we try and do in the market, but I like him from my time in Barcelona.

“Incredible personality, great talent, very special, great qualities to play in midfield and yes, I think he is a great signing for Liverpool.”
