Liverpool’s Alisson out for a "few weeks" with calf injury

The 35-year-old 'keeper was a part of Liverpool's pre-season tour of America as manager Jurgen Klopp had very few 'keepers to call upon. On top of their European triumph, Liverpool also came incredibly close to winning the Premier League last season with a record points total for a second-placed team.

"Not too cool. It's a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while", Klopp told Liverpool's website.

"I don't want to make (an) exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure".

With the extent of Alisson's injury still not confirmed, Liverpool might be looking at a familiar face to help them in the meantime as the Brazilian global heals from his calf injury.

Spaniard Adrian will deputise in Alisson's absence, and Klopp is hopeful his team can build on their win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final in Madrid.

And speaking ahead of their UEFA Super Cup showdown with English rivals Chelsea, Robertson insists his side have a huge taste for silverware now, starting on Wednesday.

The Reds are awaiting the results of a scan after their first-choice keeper injured his calf muscle in Friday's season-opening victory over Norwich City.

However, In the meantime, former West Ham goalkeeper Adrián has taken over the reins in the backline, having made his Liverpool debut only four days after signing on a free transfer. I didn't speak to [goalkeeping coach] John [Achterberg] yet about that. It takes a while, it takes a couple weeks for sure, and we have to see. We spoke a lot about the goalie situation apart from what we have to do [on Wednesday]!

It's obviously unusual playing them overseas, but I think every game is different and we'll go out there with a desire to win. 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.

"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". He's a brilliant character, a really nice lad and helped us a lot in the pre-season and now we chose to work together with him'.
