According to a recent report by the Guardian, Liverpool custodian Alisson Becker will be ready in time to make his return from injury against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday. The same source has also revealed that the Brazilian goalie has successfully stepped up his recovery process over the past week by going through an intensive and individually tailored training programme at Melwood.

Alisson’s Mesmerising Rise To The Top Of European Football

The Copa America winner has been missing in action for nine weeks after sustaining a calf injury against Norwich City in the opening weekend of this Premier League campaign. He has been in excellent form for both club and country in this calendar year. Alisson’s incredible contributions were recognised when he was named the UEFA Men’s Player of the year earlier this summer.

The Brazil international has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in world football right now. Hence, his return from injury versus the Reds Devils this weekend will be welcomed by everyone associated with the Merseyside club.

The 27-year-old has earned 42 international caps for Brazil and helped his nation lift the Copa America back in July. He is currently a keeper at the top of his game, but it remains to be seen how he performs when he returns from his latest injury setback this weekend.

What Makes The Brazilian Such A Special Keeper?

Alisson can distribute the ball accurately and can pick out the runs made by Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah on the counter. He is also excellent with his feet and has a good football IQ. What makes the Brazilian such an exceptional keeper is his hunger to keep clean sheets at the back. The Liverpool star can pull off some breathtaking saves and is also good at withstanding the high press by the opposition.

Alisson Set To Comeback Vs Man United: Huge Boost For The Merseysiders?

Alisson’s availability this weekend will be a massive boost for Jurgen Klopp and his chances of coming away with maximum points from the Theatre of Dreams. Adrian has done remarkably well in his absence but Klopp would be more satisfied having his number one keeper back for the trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Novo Hamburgo born shot-stopper has the potential to be a real game-changer as he can pull off some world-class saves to help Liverpool bag a rare clean sheet on the road.
