Jurgen Klopp delivers huge Alison Becker and Naby Keita fitness update


Alisson has been out for the Reds since the beginning of the season and may return anytime soon

Lfc rumour
The crowned UEFA Goalkeeper of last term suffered a calf injury in Liverpool's Premier League opener against Norwich last month and has since been replaced by Adrian between the sticks.

Klopp is not sure when Alisson will be back but has revealed situations over the Brazilian's recovery are improving and is not willing to put any more pressure on him.

Meanwhile the Liverpool boss expects Guinea international, Keita to return early before Ali.

Speaking on his pre-Newcastle press conference, Klopp said: “Funnily enough, we had lunch together [just now]; he looks good and he is improving, but we cannot put any pressure on it.

"It was a really serious injury in the calf. It is now much better, of course, and that’s good for us and good for him, but we don’t know exactly [how long it will be].

"The target was always after the next international break [that] he could be ready, but we don’t know. So, as I said, there is no pressure and hopefully everything will be fine for the rest of the season, that’s the plan.

"Naby is close, much closer than Ali. I think he could be in training when we come back from Napoli next week."
