Liverpool is hopeful that starting goalkeeper Alisson Becker will be fit in time for their Premier League clash against Manchester United at Anfield on December 17. The Liverpool keeper is expected to be sidelined for at least two weeks after suffering a hamstring injury.
Alisson went down with his hamstring injury during the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last Saturday. Still, the timeline for his recovery is not confirmed. “We have to see — not day by day, he will not play tomorrow [Thursday], not on Sunday, probably not the week after. Then it should be kind of OK,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted.
It has, however, been confirmed that the Brazilian goalkeeper will be absent from Liverpool’s upcoming Premier League games against Fulham, Sheffield United, and Crystal Palace. The Reds are also without forward Diogo Jota for several weeks after he picked up a muscle injury.
