Former Preston goalkeeper named in Liverpool's Super Cup squad to face Chelsea


"It's a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while", Klopp told Liverpool's website

Close-season recruit Adrian will start Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup meeting with Chelsea and fill in as Liverpool's number one for the foreseeable future.

Liverpool's victory against Norwich came at a cost as Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who also missed a large part of pre-season because of worldwide commitments, pulled up with a calf injury that will see him miss the rest of the month.

Whoever triumphs, England will have their first winners of this trophy since Liverpool gained it (for the third time) in 2005 which, of course, followed on from their miraculous European Cup win in this same city which hosts the final again this season. He has been through so many things in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Mane is "ready" to start, having only managed a second-half cameo at home to Norwich on Friday night.

"This team is built for being successful, what we try to do here is another chance for us".
