"The situation was even more hard a few weeks ago because of injuries, but Caoimhin Kelleher is now in his final steps for being completely back", Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

Liverpool had a bittersweet start to their 2019-20 Premier League campaign, seeing off Norwich in a 4-1 rout at Anfield - but having to deal with goalkeeper Alisson picking up a calf injury. I don't think he wanted to sit only on the bench for the next couple of years.

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.

Regardless, Alisson's injury will be a massive blow for the Reds, with the star shot-stopper a huge part of their European glory and Premier League runners-up status last season.

The Reds are now one of the teams to beat with a target on their backs but Gomez insists they have to keep an underdog mentality.

"We don't know exactly but it doesn't look too good".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expects the club to sign Andy Lonergan before Wednesday's European Super Cup against Chelsea.

"Obviously it's a label that's given now that we achieved what we did last season", he added.

"I don't want to make now exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure, so now then we have to see. We're looking forward to it".

Liverpool also continued their impressive run against newly promoted sides, their victory over Norwich being their 12th successive win over Premier League debutants.

"I think the main thing is that our mindset is in the right place and whatever is said after that is not up to us". "Do we really want to see goals disallowed for an offside that's an armpit ahead of another armpit by four millimetres?"
