Van Dijk backs Adrian to cover for injured Alisson

Van Dijk backs Adrian to cover for injured Alisson”

Liverpool on Friday defeated Norwich 4-1 at Anfield to kick off their premier league 2018-19 season in style.

Liverpool's star goalkeeper Alisson Becker suffered an injury to his calf while playing in Friday's Premier League 2019-20 opener against Norwich City and had to be substituted during the first half itself.

"At half-time you saw shots of those fans and they looked really dejected and you thought, it could be six, seven or eight, and they could really be going home feeling low".

Liverpool FC will take on Chelsea FC in the Uefa Super Cup in Istanbul on Wednesday night before the Reds take on Southampton in their next Premier League fixture on Saturday 15 August. "If somebody expected (something before kick-off) they should have told me, and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have done it because we are now in the new season".

"For us, the celebrations are over, we've got to focus on the new season, it's about putting it past us", he said.

The newly promoted club, who had finished at the Championship's summit last season, had been hoping to pull off a shock result at Anfield but were instead faced with an opponent in ruthless scoring form.

It was the sort of performance which suggests they are ready to once again push title favourites Manchester City to the wire after missing out by a single point last campaign.

Adrian was unable to keep a clean sheet in his first appearance for Liverpool, as Teemu Pukki managed to grab a goal for the Canaries early in the second half.

"But it's all good. We have to be a bit smart for the next two games, we have to make a few decisions and try to win both of those games, which will be hard".

"Wednesday [in the Super Cup], he will not play - with all my experience, I can say that already".

Klopp added that he was pleased with the win but insisted his team should have taken control of the game more in the second half. Of course, we have to defend a bit more solid, but it's also a few lessons for the lads on the pitch to learn.

"All we ever do is concentrate on that game that's immediately ahead of us", Van Dijk said.
