Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson to miss seven more games

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will be out for at least seven more games for his club, as Jurgen Klopp is not expecting to have him back in action until after the international break next month.
The Brazillian has been sidelined since he picked up a calf injury on the opening day of the season.
Although initial fears of a severe injury up were eased, Alisson will not return to action anytime soon.
The goalkeeper has been out of three Premier League games already as well as the Uefa Super Cup, new summer signing Adrian has taken his place in the Reds side.
Klopp admits that he needs several more weeks for a full recovery, with Liverpool eager to avoid rushing the goalkeeper back to action.
When Klopp was asked to provide a fitness update at his latest press conference, “Funnily enough, we had lunch together again, so he looks good,” he said.
“He’s improving, but we cannot put any pressure on it. It was a really serious injury with the calf, and it is now much better, good for us and good for him.
“We don’t know exactly. The target was always that after the next international break, he could be ready, but we don’t know.
“There’s no pressure, and hopefully everything will be fine for the rest of the season.”
With Brazilian being out of contention until October, former West Ham goalkeeper will likely cover Premier League games with Newcastle, Chelsea, Sheffield United, and Leicester along with Champions League games with Napoli and Salzburg.
However, League Cup match with MK Dons may offer Irish U21 goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher a senior debut for Liverpool.
