Jurgen Klopp spoke during his pre-match press conference ahead of the clash against Newcastle United and provided an update on Alisson’s return date.

Liverpool and Klopp have kept things under wraps and haven’t provided a return date for the keeper, however, the German claimed that the target for his return is after the next international break.
The manager added that Alisson has looked good, however, he doesn’t want to put any pressure on the Brazilian to return early (h/t LiverpoolFC.com):
“It was a really serious injury in the calf. It is now much better, of course, and that’s good for us and good for him, but we don’t know exactly [how long it will be].
“The target was always after the next international break [that] he could be ready, but we don’t know. So, as I said, there is no pressure and hopefully everything will be fine for the rest of the season, that’s the plan.”
The German also provided an update on Nathaniel Clyne and Paul Glatzel, claiming that they are still some way away from returning to the team.
