Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Alisson and Diogo Jota will not be available for Saturday’s Community Shield clash with Manchester City.
Alisson hasn’t been involved since the pre-season friendly against Manchester United in Bangkok on 12 July, where he sustained and abdominal injury.
The Brazilian stopper has now resumed training but won’t be ready to face City in the season curtain raiser at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Diogo Jota, meanwhile, is currently nursing a muscle injury and it is not clear when he will return.
Klopp remains hopeful that his goalkeeper will be available to face Fulham when Liverpool open their 2022/23 Premier League against Fulham.
“Alisson trained today more today than the day before and will definitely be available for Fulham, but not for the weekend,” Klopp said at his pre-match news conference on Thursday.
“The same for Diogo. Diogo was not here with us so how could he play a football game? That will take a while unfortunately. That’s it.” He concluded.
