Liverpool will be without Alisson for the "next few weeks"

Liverpool went all the way in the Champions League beating Tottenham in the final in June

With the extent of Alisson's injury still not confirmed, Liverpool might be looking at a familiar face to help them in the meantime as the Brazilian worldwide heals from his calf injury.

Liverpool kicked off their season with a convincing 4-1 win over Norwich City, but there was one particular issue that will be a worry as their number 1 goalkeeper Alisson was injured in the game and had to be replaced by new signing Adrian.

Jürgen Klopp admitted the problem "does not look too good" and ruled the Brazil worldwide out of the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea in Istanbul on Wednesday.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, speaking after the Norwich game, insisted Adrian will prove a quality deputy for Alisson.

Adrian came on and made his debut in the 4-1 romp, but because he is the club's only fit goalkeeper, Jurgen Klopp is apparently considering bringing in Andy Lonergan on a free transfer to bolster his ranks.

The Champions League winners take on Premier League rivals Chelsea, who won last season's Europa League, in Istanbul on Wednesday.

Yet while Andy Lonergan is set to join Liverpool to plug the gap in their keeper line-up, Klopp has offered warm words of support for 20-year-old Kelleher, as he closes in on a return to action after a wrist problem sustained during pre-season.

"I don't want to make now (an) exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not tomorrow for sure, so now then we have to see".

"Stay greedy. That's very important - I have no doubt about that, but it's clear that we have to do that", Klopp told UEFA.com when asked how his side could build on that success. "We'll see over the next days what the outcome is going to be". I didn't speak to John [Achterberg] yet about that, we spoke a lot about the goalie situation apart from what we have to do [on Wednesday]!

I saw already like "six weeks" and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career.

"We have to see".
