Liverpool: Van Dijk backs Adrián while Alisson is out

Liverpool went all the way in the Champions League beating Tottenham in the final in June

Liverpool had a bittersweet start to their 2019-20 Premier League campaign, seeing off Norwich in a 4-1 rout at Anfield - but having to deal with goalkeeper Alisson picking up a calf injury.

While initial fears that it could be a long-term injury were quelled by reports soon after the match, Klopp said via the club's official website on Monday that it will be a "few weeks" before we see the Brazilian back in action, while cautiously refusing to lock down a specific timescale on his return.

Liverpool have been bare in the goalkeeping department, and needed to take Andy Lonergan, the former Preston and Middlesbrough man, on their United States tour due to Caoimhim Keheller (wrist) and Vitoslav Jaros (elbow ligaments) being injured. "We'll see over the next days what the outcome is going to be".

Sportsmail's exclusively revealed on Sunday that Alisson was looking at an eight-week stretch on the sidelines, after being assessed at the club's Melwood base.

After the Chelsea game in Istanbul, Liverpool faces Southampton on Saturday and Arsenal a week later.

USA attorney general cites 'serious irregularities' at jail where Epstein died
According to the charges - which Epstein denied - the girls, some as young as 14, were given hundreds of dollars for sex acts. The decision by officials at the Bureau of Prisons not to keep Epstein on a suicide watch by guards has come under scrutiny.

After being released by Middlesbrough at the end of last season, the 35-year-old spent the summer with Liverpool in their U.S. summer tour as Alisson missed the tour due to Copa America duties with Brazil.

The former West Ham stopper was signed by the Reds following the departure of Simon Mignolet to Club Brugge, and was afforded a warm welcome by the Kop as he made an unexpected debut.

"I think he's at that kind of age, that stage of his life and career that he can come in and slot in to the team pretty easy", the Dutch centre-back told reporters. I didn't speak to John [Achterberg] yet about that, we spoke a lot about the goalie situation apart from what we have to do [on Wednesday]!

"We will see, but we can have obviously a lot of players on the bench there, which is good and I think Andy will be one of them".
