Klopp confirms Alisson will miss Saturday’s Community Shield against Manchester

Liverpool’s No.1 has not featured since the pre-season friendly against Manchester United in Bangkok earlier in July.

Alisson has now returned to training and Klopp expects him to be fit for the Premier League opener at Fulham on August 6, but the Brazil international will not face Manchester City at King Power Stadium this weekend.

Diogo Jota, meanwhile, also remains sidelined with a muscle issue.

“No, Alisson and Diogo have no [chance]. Ali trained today more than the day before so he will be definitely available for Fulham, but not for the weekend,” the boss said on Thursday.

“And 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.”
