Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed goalkeeper Alisson Becker and forward Diogo Jota will both be out for at least a few weeks after picking up injuries in their draw with Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp has received mixed news on the fitness of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker as his injury is not as bad as first feared - but he will keep him out for at least two weeks.

The Brazil international appeared to sustain a hamstring problem late in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Manchester City, but managed to complete the match.

The games Alisson will miss

  • Thurs Nov 30: Linz ASK (h), 8pm [Europa League]
  • Sun Dec 3: Fulham (h), 2pm [Premier League]
  • Wed Dec 6: Sheff Utd (a), 7.30pm [Premier League]
  • Sat Dec 9: Crystal Palace (a), 12.30pm [Premier League]
  • Thurs Dec 14: Union Saint-Gilloise (a) [Europa League]

Alisson is likely to miss five matches, but should return for the visit of Manchester United on December 17, which is live on Sky Sports.

However, Portugal forward Diogo Jota was also injured at Man City, but his prognosis is not as good.

"Both are out. Ali is a bit lesser, so we have to see. Not day by day - he cannot play tomorrow [Thursday] or Sunday. Probably not the week after should be kind of OK," the Liverpool manager said ahead of the Europa League visit of LASK on Thursday night.
