According to a recent report by the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool custodian Alisson Becker is taking part in extra training sessions in a bid to be ready for the away trip to Old Trafford against Manchester United after the international break.
Liverpool Have Coped Well During Alisson’s Absence In The English Top-Flight
The Reds have made a flawless start to this campaign having won all eight of their matches in the Premier League thus far. Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently sitting pretty at the top of the league standings with a healthy eight-point advantage over Manchester City.
The European champions have only kept three clean sheets following Alisson’s injury against Norwich City in the opening weekend of the English top-flight season. Adrian has stepped up to the plate in the Brazilian goalkeeper’s absence and has pulled off some world-class saves to help Liverpool continue their dominance in the top tier of England.
Despite a loss against Napoli in the UEFA Champions League, the Merseyside giants have managed to bounce back by securing a hard-fought 4-3 win over RB Salzburg earlier this month. However, Klopp will be concerned about the fact that his side has conceded five goals in two European matches this season.
There is no doubt that Liverpool have missed Alisson in the Champions League, but they have coped well with his injury absence in the Premier League. However, with a tricky test against an underperforming Man United team looming on the horizon, Klopp would hope that he can have his undisputed number one keeper back in time for the heated clash at the Theatre of Dreams later this month.
Alisson’s Sensational Record For The Reds
Since joining from AS Roma last year, the 27-year-old has featured in a total of 53 matches for the Reds so far, shipping in 35 goals while securing 28 clean sheets on all fronts. Alisson has also earned 42 international caps for the Brazilian national side and was recently awarded the UEFA Men’s goalkeeper of the year for his incredible contributions for both club and country in this calendar year.
Alisson Set To Return Vs Man United: Big Boost For The Premier League Table Toppers?
Having Alisson in contention to be back for the Red Devils encounter will be a massive boost for Klopp as he tries to motivate his players to continue their remarkable winning run in the Premier League. Even if the Brazilian goalie fails to recover in time for the trip to Old Trafford, Liverpool should still have Adrian available who has proven that he is more than capable of filling in the former AS Roma talent’s shoes in goal for the Merseyside giants.
