Thiago Alcantara: Out of action until at least November

Thiago Alcantara: Out of action until at least November

The 22-year-old tore ligaments in his right ankle after an hour of Bayern's 2-0 win over Nurnberg at the weekend and will now need to rest for five to six weeks before beginning light training, the Bavarian club announced on their website.

"We're going to miss him," said Bayern coach Pep Guardiola at a press conference.

"He's a very special player and important to the team, but he's going to be out for a long time."

The Spaniard will be on crutches for the next six weeks, meaning a return is unlikely until November at the very earliest.

He will miss at least Bayern's next four Bundesliga fixtures while he could be ruled out for three Champions League encounters.

He will also not feature in the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea on Friday.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
