Liverpool confirms that their stopper Alisson is out for injury upto March

March Brighton Liverpool

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has missed their last two fixtures against Brentford and Luton Town, and assistant manager Pep Lijnders has now provided an update on his fitness ahead of the Carabao Cup final.

The Brazilian international is undoubtedly one of the best goalkeepers in world football and has saved the Merseyside outfit on many occasions between the sticks, but he’s going to be unavailable for Liverpool’s trip to the capital this.

Liverpool gives Alisson injury updates:

Speaking before Liverpool’s trip to Wembley, Jurgen Klopp’s assistant Lijnders spoke to the media, providing an update on Alisson’s fitness. The German coach confirmed that Alisson would be out until after the March international break, which is a huge blow for the Reds.

Caoimhin Kelleher stepped in for the trip to Brentford last weekend and the home fixture against Luton on Wednesday, and he’s likely to be between the sticks at Wembley against Chelsea. The Republic of Ireland international is more than capable, but losing your number one goalkeeper is always a worrying problem.

Alisson, who cost Liverpool £65m, joins a host of different players who will be watching from the stands on Sunday. The Reds are going through a bit of an injury crisis at an important time of the season. But it didn’t prevent Liverpool picking up two wins in their previous two games in the Premier League. Kelleher stood a good chance of starting the game even before Alisson’s injury. With Klopp giving the 25-year-old the responsibility in the cup. Alisson is yet to play a single minute in the competition.

Lijnders also provided an update on the status of Dominik Szoboszlai, Mohamed Salah, and Darwin Nunez ahead of the final…

“Dom, Darwin and Mo we have to really see. We have two more days and we will check if they are there. Would be great if they can be to be honest. And the rest Jurgen has already said.”

Earlier in the week, Klopp confirmed that Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones, and Trent Alexander-Arnold would all be unavailable for Liverpool.
