Alisson ‘really close’ to return: Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Alisson is “really close” to a return from injury but has ruled the Brazilian out of Saturday’s trip to Sheffield United.

Alisson has not featured for Liverpool since suffering a calf injury on the opening day of the season.
The 26-year-old, who was named men’s goalkeeper of the year at the Best FIFA Football awards on Monday, feels he is “nearly there” in his recovery, and Klopp expects him to return to full training by the end of the week.
“Alisson is in a good way. Yesterday, not with us but with the goalie coaches, [he had] a full session. He is getting closer and closer,” said Klopp, who confirmed Sadio Mane and Divock Origi are back in full training.
“We will have to see now, we have to talk to the medical department. Ali looks like he is close but the final work is with the medical department because we have to ask how it is exactly. He is not in contention for tomorrow, he just trains now, but it looks like he will be able to train with the team maybe from Sunday. We don’t know 100 per cent but he is really close.”
Liverpool will look to continue their perfect start to the Premier League season when they travel to Bramall Lane on Saturday.
Klopp’s side are top of the table having won all six of their games so far, while Sheffield United sit 10th after a positive start, taking eight points from their opening six matches.
Adrian is expected to start in goal for Liverpool and Klopp says the Spaniard’s solid form has eased the pressure on Alisson in his recovery from injury.
