Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp’s Alisson injury update before Chelsea

Liverpool vs Chelsea

Tomorrow night in Istanbul, Liverpool take on Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup.

Liverpool are in the showpiece match after winning the Champions League final.

Chelsea booked their spot after their Europa League triumph.

Last weekend, Liverpool started their Premier League campaign with a 4-1 win over Norwich at Anfield.

As for Chelsea, Frank Lampard’s Blues were beaten 4-0 at Man United on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s Alisson injury update

Brazilian international keeper Alisson sustained a calf injury against Norwich.

In worrying scenes, Alisson injured himself during a routine clearance.

Former West Ham goalkeeper Adrian, who has only recently joined the Reds as cover in goal, made his Liverpool debut against the Canaries, as Alisson couldn’t continue.

There have since been claims that Alisson could be out of action for six to eight weeks.

However, according to Klopp, the keeper could be back sooner:

It’s not too cool. It’s a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while.

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.
