Liverpool fans have reason to celebrate before the anticipated showdown against Crystal Palace on Saturday, as Jurgen Klopp has officially stated that Alisson Becker is back in training.
The Brazilian goalkeeper actively participated in Thursday’s squad training session in preparation for their upcoming match at Selhurst Park. Recognized as one of Klopp’s pivotal players, Alisson’s return serves as a significant boost for the German coach.
During the press conference on Friday, Klopp provided insights into the goalkeeper’s fitness, stating, “I don’t know if he’ll be good enough for tomorrow. Have to check,” as reported by Andy Hunter.
Alisson has been absent from Liverpool’s last three matches due to a muscle injury. The decision on whether to include the Brazilian in the upcoming match against Crystal Palace or to reserve him for the crucial clash with Manchester United next Sunday will be disclosed tomorrow.
With Alisson unavailable, Caoimhin Kelleher has assumed responsibility, delivering two commendable performances against LASK and Sheffield United on Wednesday.
While the Irish international struggled in the match against Fulham last weekend, Klopp expresses confidence in starting him against Crystal Palace if necessary.
Alisson’s return alleviates Klopp’s concerns about injuries, providing relief as the injury list at Anfield expands with Matip and Mac Allister joining in over the past week.
