Liverpool lose Alisson0
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will not help his team in the upcoming matches of the EPL and the UEFA Super Cup.
The Merseyside club met with the league rookies Norwich in the first round of the EPL. Last time the Canaries played in the elite of the English football three years ago, therefore it is not surprising that the match ended with a devastating result by Jurgen Klopp’s team with a score 4:1 for Anfield.
From the very first minutes Liverpool began threatening Tim Krul’s goal. By the fourth minute already, the team advanced thanks to Norwich captain Hanley’s mistake to his own goal. BY the 20th minute Salah doubled the score and eight minutes later van Dijk concluded Salah pass. As a result, the Reds scored four goals in the first half, but misfortunes also took place.
On the 39th minute, during entering the ball back in the game Alisson Becker got injured. As reported by Daily Mail journalist Dominic King, the Brazilian will miss from four to six weeks due to rupture of the calf muscle. Because of this accident, the footballer will not only miss the upcoming EPL matches, but also the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea, as well as the Champions League group stage start.
Despite the bad news for Liverpool fans, one cannot mention the positive one. Just a week before the start of the EPL, a new goalkeeper joined the Merseysiders. It is London West Ham’s ex-goalkeeper Adrian. The Spaniard signed a two-year contract with Liverpool, having moved to Anfield as a free agent. The debut for the Spaniard turned out to be good. Despite a missed goal in the middle of the second half, the goalkeeper made three saves and showed secure play in the goal.
Liverpool now have a worthy replacement for Alisson. After unconfident game of Loris Karius in the goal and Simon Mignolet’s as well, the Merseysiders got one of the best goalkeepers of the EPL the year before last for free. Adrian is good in the goal almost without errors playing on the outputs. Although last year he was replaced by Fabianski in the starting line-up, but the goalkeeper proved that he was still able to play at a decent level in the top club of Europe.
