Boost for Liverpool as Alisson returns to training

Liverpool has received a timely boost with manager Jurgen Klopp confirming that goalkeeper Alisson Becker has returned to full training.

Becker has been out of action since the opening day of the season with Adrian providing cover in his absence but Klopp confirmed that defender Joel Matip and Xherdan Shaqiri will miss Saturday's Premier League meeting with Leicester City.

Speaking ahead of the game ahead of Leicester Klopp said: "With Alisson it's still: maybe, maybe not. Yesterday he trained with the team (for the first time).

Making A decision

"But if you know goalie sessions, they are often pretty more intense than the proper football sessions. He looked really good. We will see, I have to talk to different people before I make a decision about that.

"Joel looks good but is not ready for tomorrow, and Shaq not. And Clyney not. That's it pretty much. After the international break, they are all back on track, apart from Clyney, but until then we have only one game and we have to play without them for that game."

Matip sat out the Champions League victory over Salzburg in midweek, while Shaqiri continues to be sidelined through injury.
