Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is undergoing extra training sessions as he attempts to be fit in time for the Reds’ next Premier League match against Manchester United on October 20th.
ESPN reported that, over the international break, the Brazil international plans to continue preparing for his comeback from a calf injury sustained two months ago, even though Reds players not involved with their countries have been granted time off by Jurgen Klopp.
According to ESPN, Alisson has been working with Liverpool goalkeeping coach John Achterberg on his speed, reactions, distribution and power as he targets a first-team return for the trip to Old Trafford later this month.
The Spaniard has helped Liverpool to victory in each of their eight league games so far this term, but has conceded 13 goals in his 11 appearances, whereas Alisson let in just 34 goals in 51 games last season.
These Liverpool fans on Twitter called for the Brazilian to go straight back into the team as soon as he is match-fit:
Get him straight back in. Adrian has done well but he was at fault for the maddison goal last weekend and Alisson gives us more ball playing options from the back

Alisson has to play if fit. He’s one of, if not the best keeper in the world on his day. Adrian has been a great understudy in his absence, but unfortunately that is what he is.. his understudy. He would have knew that when he signed. I think he would understand!

Do you think Alisson should go straight into the team once fit or should Klopp keep faith with Adrian? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
