And he produced a top-drawer curl to put Sadio Mane on target, the striker making no mistake to fire past Jose Sa.

But there would be no more magic from Thiago as he picked up an injury and had to be substituted at half-time.

James Milner came on as a substitute and helped Liverpool to a 3-1 win but Jurgen Klopp must now wait nervously to see the extent of Thiago’s injury.

Liverpool are already sweating ahead of next week’s Champions League final with injuries to Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk.

Now Thiago is being assessed, with Klopp commenting after the game: “It didn’t look good. we have to see

“Not good, but that’s all I can say. He was out with the families, had his little girl on his shoulders so he could walk, which of course is a good sign. We’ll see everything else tomorrow.

“[It’s the] lower part of the body. I know it, but I don’t really want to talk about it right now. We will see.

“Give us a chance to have this [scan]; it doesn’t make the news better or worse. We want to wait until we know more about it, then you will get the information too.”

Liverpool certainly know they will be without their 2019 Champions League hero Divock Origi, who picked up a muscle injury in training.

But Klopp hopes every other player in his squad will be fit to take on Real Madrid as the Reds seek revenge for their 2018 final defeat.

As for Origi, the forward received a standing ovation as he walked onto Anfield with the FA Cup trophy for the last time on Sunday.

His contract expires this summer and the Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to recently crowned Serie A champions AC Milan.
