Liverpool were forced to make a late team change on Saturday when midfielder Thiago woke up with a serious ear infection and missed the entirety of their 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest.
The Reds travel to Amsterdam tomorrow night for a crucial Champions League clash with Ajax that could see the Premier League club on the brink of an early exit should they lose the clash.
Jurgen Klopp’s team can advance to the next round with only a draw, but the German coach will still be without Thiago for the match.
The Spaniard was absent from Liverpool’s training session today as the 31-year-old continues to recover from his ear infection, but Klopp did bring back other key stars, the Liverpool Echo reports.

According to the report, Darwin Nunez took part in open training on Tuesday after sitting out the weekend’s game as a precaution, while Ibrahima Konate and Naby Keita also took part in full team training as they continue their own injury recoveries. .
This is a huge boost for Liverpool as they approach an important period for the team before the World Cup as they try to breathe some life into their awful start to the campaign.
