Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will not be available for the European Super Cup final against Chelsea next week, following his injury against Norwich last night.
The Brazilian picked up a calf problem after slipping whilst taking a goal kick in the first half of the 4-1 win yesterday. Fans on Twitter have been wishing the keeper a speedy recovery and are hoping he isn’t out for too long:

Adrian looked capable when he came on to replace Alisson, but the Reds will be hoping their number one isn’t out for a lengthy period of time.
The 26-year-old did not miss a single minute of Premier League action last season, and his absence will be keenly felt over the coming days and weeks as Liverpool play some crucial matches in the opening month of the season.
As well Chelsea in the Super Cup, they have Arsenal in the Premier League before the end of August.
