Liverpool hit by Alisson Becker injury blow - Klopp confirms

Liverpool hit by Alisson Becker injury blow - Klopp confirms

His commanding influence on the side is one of the biggest factors in Liverpool's defensive record last season in the Premier League.

"Obviously when a keeper has to come off, it's never too promising, so yes, I think everyone needs to get their head around [the fact] that he probably will be our keeper for the next few weeks and if so, then we have to live with that, embrace that and I'm sure he will learn from us". It's a calf injury, which takes him obviously out for a while. We have to see it as a new game and a new challenge.

Alisson was injured and substituted during the first half of his side's 4-1 win against promoted Norwich City last week when he slipped and went down holding his calf before he was helped off the field by support staff.

32-year-old Adrian was a free agent following his departure from West Ham United where he spent six years after signing from La Liga club Real Betis.

Caoimhin Kelleher is expected to serve as Adrian's understudy for Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup fixture against Chelsea in Istanbul, with the youngster having recently returned to training following a broken wrist.

Veteran stopper Andy Lonergan spent some time with Liverpool during pre-season on their USA tour and is now a free agent.

Hotline set up as search for Nora enters second week in Malyasia
Police from France, Ireland and the United Kingdom are providing Malaysian police with support in their quest to locate Nora. The search for the 15 year old is into its 9th day with 353 people involved in the operation.

Asked if Lonergan will be on the bench on Wednesday, Klopp said: "I think so". "I didn't speak to John [Achterberg, Liverpool goalkeeping coach] yet about that".

"He was in with us, he's a brilliant character, a really nice lad and helped us a lot in the pre-season, and now we (have) made a decision to work together with him".

"And at that level, no matter how long you've had off, just because of what a good game it'll be to play [in] and [it's] a chance to win silverware and [there will be] a great atmosphere as well".

Alisson signed for the Merseyside club in the summer of 2018 for a fee of £62million from Roma.

"The situation was even more hard a few weeks ago because of injuries, but Caoimhin Kelleher is now in his final steps for being completely back".
