Alisson could be back between our sticks before the month is up.
That’s according to Dave Maddock of the Mirror, who says the Brazilian’s rehab is going well and that he’s now out on the grass at Melwood.
Providing nothing goes wrong in the next week, our brilliant no.1 could actually be in the lineup pretty soon, with Alisson so far feeling no negative reaction to his physical work.
Adrian has been undefeated while deputising for Alisson, but he’s only racked up one clean-sheet.
Alisson won the Golden Glove last season, so he’ll be desperate to get back into the side and start registering shutouts.
We think we can rule Alisson out of the Newcastle, Napoli and Chelsea games – but he could return to face MK Dons and Sheffield United at the end of September.
Usually, Adrian would be expected to start in the EFL Cup, but it might be a nice way to ease Alisson back into the action.
Now, we’re just waiting to see if Naby Keita is ready to feature – and Jurgen Klopp will have a fully fit squad (bar Nathaniel Clyne) to choose from.
