Alisson has been absent since he injured his shoulder in a collision at the Melwood practice range two weeks ago before driving to Aston Villa.
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker is back in training – and could be back in action before the end of the month.
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker is ahead of schedule as he recovers from a shoulder injury.
However, Alisson has already begun work on individual sessions in Melwood, which involve diving and falling and which, according to ECHO’s findings, have progressed well.
Initial suggestions had indicated that the Brazilian International could be cancelled for up to six weeks.
In his speech on Friday, Jürgen Klopp offered an optimistic medical bulletin in which he pointed out that the goalkeeper could return earlier than expected.
The people of Liverpool are confident that the player will not aggravate the problem, which so far has not required surgery.
And there is now hope that Alisson will be available again for West Ham United’s Premier League visit on Saturday week.
With Alisson absent, Liverpool plunged into their heaviest defeat since 1963 when they were beaten 7-2 at Aston Villa.
“Very, very positive with Ali,” said the head of the Reds. “Looks really good. Took big steps. I have no time frame, but it looks really good.”
Adrian was again tied 2-2 in the Merseyside Derby in Everton on Saturday and he will continue to play between the sticks until Alisson is ready to return.
Liverpool are next in line on Wednesday when they open the Champions League group stage with a trip to Holland against Ajax.
