Adrian will step up to be first-choice goalkeeper in Alisson's absence, and Klopp has confirmed that Lonergan - who was part of Liverpool's squad during pre-season and has continued training at Melwood - is set to sign a short-term contract with the club.

Tonight sees the 2019/20 Premier League season kick off as Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool welcome Daniel Farke's newly-promoted Norwich City to Anfield.

But despite the injury being a far from ideal start for Jurgen Klopp's side, Alexander-Arnold has great faith in Adrian's ability to fill in, speaking to the Evening Standard.

Upon doing so, the 24-year-old became only the eighth player to score a hat-trick on the opening weekend of an EPL campaign, and the first since Didier Drogba in 2010, as per Opta Sports.

Klopp said: "I don't want to make now [an] exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not tomorrow for sure, so now then we have to see".

Liverpool lose Alisson to injury in Premier League opener
Liverpool's star goalkeeper Alisson Becker suffered an injury to his calf while playing in Friday's Premier League 2019-20 opener against Norwich City and had to be substituted during the first half itself.

"He's been through so many things in the Premier League he can just slot in pretty easy".

'We will be able to make good connections with him and I think a lot of the lads have made bonds with him already because he's such a good lad off the pitch.

The Liverpool Echo say that they have once again turned to Lonergan for relief, having agreed a one-year deal that could see him occupy a spot on the bench for Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup clash with Chelsea.

"I think so [Lonergan will be on the bench]", he added.
