Liverpool keeper Alisson out for 'next few weeks' says Klopp

Liverpool's medical staff continue to monitor the calf injury the Brazil worldwide sustained in the first half of the Premier League win against Norwich on Friday, but there are concerns that Alisson may be absent until late September or early October, a period that would force him out of the first Champions League group game.

The 26-year-old Brazilian damaged a calf during the first half of Friday night's 4-1 Premier League victory over Norwich and while the club has put no timescale on his recovery, Klopp is expecting to have to do without the Champions League victor for some time.

"[It's] not too cool".

Jürgen Klopp expects Andy Lonergan to join #LFC on a short-term basis following the calf injury sustained by Alisson Becker.

"I don't want to make now [an] exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure, so now then we have to see".

"So we'll be looking for a tough game, maybe a wee bit different to the Chelsea we faced last season but it'll be interesting to see what they're like".

I saw already like "six weeks" and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career.

Sridevi famously co-starred with Anil Kapoor in Mr India nearly a decade before she married his filmmaker brother Boney Kapoor. It has nearly been a year and a half since Sridevi passed away but she yet continues to live in the hearts of her fans.

The Brazilian made such a difference to Liverpool's backline last season and in a campaign where it's imperative to make a fast start to keep pace with Manchester City, the Reds could be at a significant disadvantage.

The Reds face Chelsea in the Super Cup final this week, and will also face Arsenal and Chelsea before the end of September.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has no qualms about Adrian replacing Alisson in the Liverpool goals.

Lonergan was part of Liverpool's pre-season tour as cover for their other keepers. If Alisson is set to miss 6-8 weeks of football, he will most likely not feature in the games against both those London clubs.

He said: "I think [the Community Shield] would have been nice but we lost the way we did, which was unfortunate". I didn't speak to [goalkeeping coach] John [Achterberg] yet about that. We spoke a lot about the goalie situation apart from what we have to do on Wednesday!

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