Liverpool will be without Alisson for the "next few weeks"

Alisson out for'weeks with calf injury

Now, Liverpool may have found a short-term solution for the goalkeeping crisis at Anfield as the Reds have been linked with a move for former Fulham and Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he will need to wrap goalkeeper Adrian up in cotton wool, while Alisson recovers from the calf injury he picked up on the opening day of the season. "We don't have to talk too much about it, that's what the experience is for", Klopp told Liverpool's official site.

Adrian, signed from West Ham last week, looks set to fill the void initially, but Klopp is optimistic his shot stopper can be back quicker than anticipated.

Lonergan, 35, was released by Middlesbrough at the end of last season and was drafted in as cover for Simon Mignolet in Liverpool's pre-season tour of U.S., while Alisson was given time to recover from the Copa America.

With some big fixtures coming up, most recently against Chelsea in the Super Cup and Arsenal in the league, the Reds will be hoping Adrian can make a seamless transition as they aim to build on their impressive start to the season.

"It will accelerate climate change at a time when we desperately need action to reverse it". Obama's Clean Power Plan had been prevented from going into effect by previous litigation.

Every player wants to play for his country and I treasure all of my Ireland caps, but it seems unfair that Mane was still playing for Senegal in the middle of July and then has to come back to Liverpool and play in the Premier League a few weeks later. It takes a while, it takes a couple weeks for sure, and we have to see.

With Klopp's third-choice keeper Caoimhin Kelleher also injured, Lonergan will be signed as a free agent soon.

"I saw already [people saying] six weeks and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career, so I would like to wait a little bit to see how he develops in that process now".

"He was in with us, he's a brilliant character, a really nice lad and helped us a lot in the pre-season, and now we chose to work together with him". So that's what we try and then he will be fine.
