All the latest news from Anfield
The Liverpool and Brazilian shot-stopper is recovering from an injury sustained during training before last week’s international break.
Alisson Becker has made very ‘big steps’ in his recovery from the injury that ruled him out of action before the international break, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.
The 28-year-old started Liverpool’s first three games of the season as the Reds notched three straight victories over Leeds United, Chelsea and Arsenal. Alisson also made a crucial penalty save during his side’s 2-0 victory over the Blues at Stamford Bridge.
After his side’s victory over Mikel Arteta’s men, the Reds No.1 sustained a shoulder injury in training that forced him to watch his side’s 7-2 drubbing by Aston Villa from the sidelines. He was subsequently ruled out of action for up to one-and-a-half month with Adrian taking his place in the Reds’ starting XI.
But having initially raised fears that the Brazilian will be out of action for up to six weeks, Klopp is now ‘positive’ with his goalkeeper’s recovery from injury, claiming that the former Roma shot-stopper ‘looks very good’.
Naby Keita won’t be a part of the Liverpool side that will travel to Goodison Park to face Everton on Saturday afternoon, per Jurgen Klopp.
The Liverpool midfielder was one of five Guinea players who had tested positive for coronavirus prior to their national side’s friendly match against Gambia.
Keita has started the new season in excellent fashion for the Reds, with the 25-year-old becoming an integral part of Liverpool’s midfield alongside new arrival Thiago Alcantara.
His absence from the squad might allow the former Bayern Munich midfielder to replace Keita in the Reds’ starting lineup against Everton on Saturday.
The Liverpool youngster has been a regular part of the Reds’ starting lineup in domestic cup competitions but has failed to break into their Premier League side on a regular basis.
Blackburn Rovers are interested in signing Harvey Elliot on loan before the closure of the domestic transfer window, per Paul Joyce.
The Times’ journalist further claimed that Jurgen Klopp’s side are ready to sanction the youngster’s move to the Championship as they see it as an opportunity for him to play regularly.
A move to the Championship side would surely be a step down for the teenager but it would give him the chance to get some playing minutes under his belt.
Rovers are looking for an attacking outlet that could propel them up the Championship table and have already secured the signing of Leeds United’s Barry Douglas.
