Klopp discusses Alisson injury following Norwich win
Jurgen Klopp was unsure about the seriousness of the calf injury sustained by Alisson Becker during Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Norwich but ruled the goalkeeper out of Wednesday’s Super Cup clash with Chelsea in Istanbul.
Alisson had to come off in the 39th minute against the Canaries at Anfield having gone down clutching his calf after slipping while playing a goal kick.
New signing Adrian came on as the Brazilian’s replacement, making his Reds debut four days after joining the club on a free transfer.
Liverpool were 3-0 up by the time they made the substitution, following a ninth-minute Grant Hanley own goal and efforts from Mohamed Salah and Virgil Van Dijk, and three minutes after Alisson’s departure, Divock Origi made it 4-0.
Teemu Pukki pulled a goal back for newly-promoted Norwich in the 64th minute.
