Van Dijk backs Adrian to cover for injured Alisson

Liverpool's win over Norwich in Premier League opener comes at a cost Liverpool lose Alisson to injury in Premier League opener

Norwich went on to score in the second-half through Teemu Pukki but the damage had already been done.

The Brazil worldwide came off in the 39th minute of the Premier League season opener after slipping and holding his right calf.

In the post-match press conference, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Alisson had discomfort with calf and will sit out for the Super Cup clash against Chelsea on Wednesday.

He has been a revelation since arriving in English football during the summer of 2018, with the Premier League Golden Glove captured in his debut campaign.

"There's actually nothing bad to say about the game apart from Ali's injury", said Klopp.

Origi was an unlikely hero of that Champions League triumph as he scored twice in the stunning 4-0 semi-final win over Barcelona and again in the final over Tottenham.

Mohammad Salah goal in the 19th minute doubled the lead for the hosts.

The game was virtually over in the 28th minute when Norwich made it far too easy for Van Dijk to nod home a Salah corner to make it 3-0 and it could have been four just minutes later but Norwich keeper Tim Krul did well to keep out a Firmino volley.

After teeing-up 13 league goals term, Alexander-Arnold got off the mark in the assist stakes with his cross to Origi for Liverpool's fourth. "We've just got to continue to work hard, keep doing the right things and keep putting in good performances".

Highlighting a need to make the most of home games, starting against Newcastle on Saturday, the former England right-back was pleased to see Farke sticking to his principles even for the most hard of challenges. The Spaniard came on in relief of Alisson against Norwich, and perhaps could have done better on Pukki's goal.

Although the injury is a huge blow for the European Champions, given Alisson's exploits last season, it could represent a chance for 20-year old Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher - should he be fit enough. We wanted to start off with some points but we showed great character and I'm pleased especially in the second half but we're disappointed we lost this game.
