Alisson Becker could be missing for up to two months after suffering a calf injury during Liverpool's opening Premier League game on Friday.

According to The Athletic UK's James Pearce, the Reds expect the Brazil international to be unavailable for between four and eight weeks after limping off against Norwich City at Anfield.

The goalkeeper is set to miss Liverpool's 2019 UEFA Super Cup match against Chelsea on Wednesday in Istanbul, Turkey.

New signing Adrian replaced the 26-year-old against the Canaries, making his debut after joining the club on a free transfer on Monday.

The former West Ham United 'keeper should be set for a run in the starting XI, with free agent Andy Lonergan potentially deputising for Adrian on the bench.

Per Connor Dunn of the Liverpool EchoLonergan could be offered a short-term deal to cover while Alisson recovers.

Simon Mignolet recently left the club to sign for Club Brugge, depleting Jurgen Klopp's senior options on Merseyside.
