Liverpool midfielder Thiago is set to make his return to action this weekend after recovering from a positive Covid-19 test and is was in sparkling form at the club's Melwood training base on Monday.

The Spanish midfielder's brilliance produced up a social media hit when he was training with Spain last month, hitting long balls between team-mate Rodri in a video that attracted millions of views on the Spanish FA's Twitter feed.

Now Liverpool's new signing has been serving up some more magic on the training pitch, with his moment of sublime control and pass instantly getting hundreds of thousands of views on the Liverpool Twitter feed.

James Milner looked on in bemusement as his team-mate performed his party piece, with Thiago looking in great touch ahead of his return to action this weekend.
