Klopp delivers update on Alisson injury ahead of Chelsea clash

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has provided an update on Alisson’s calf injury, with the goalkeeper likely to be sidelined for several weeks.

The Brazil international was substituted during Liverpool‘s 4-1 win over Norwich City on the opening night of the Premier League season, the 26-year-old replaced in goal by new signing Adrian.

Alisson will now miss the Red’s Uefa Super Cup clash with Chelsea on Wednesday, and Klopp has revealed the goalkeeper is likely to be missing for a “few weeks”.

“[It’s] not too cool. It’s a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.

“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. It takes a while, it takes a couple weeks for sure, and we have to see.

“I saw already like ‘six weeks’ and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career so I would like to wait a little bit to see how he develops in that process now, but he is not in for the next few weeks.”
