Klopp keeping fans guessing over Alisson return

Jurgen Klopp confirmed Alisson returned to full first-team training on Thursday but did not commit to starting the Brazil goalkeeper against Leicester City on Saturday.

Alisson sustained a calf injury against Norwich City in Liverpool's season opener, suffering the problem while taking a goal-kick in the 4-1 triumph.

Klopp revealed Alisson was back with the rest of the group following a period of solitary and goalkeeper-only training.

He is yet to make a decision on whether the former Roma man will play against Leicester, though Joel Matip and Xherdan Shaqiri are definitely out.

"With Alisson it is still 'maybe, maybe not'," Klopp told reporters on Friday. "Yesterday [Thursday] he trained with the team for the first time.

"He looked really good, but we will see. We have to talk to different people before I make a decision about that.

Liverpool are currently five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table and will be aiming to extend that lead on Saturday, with Pep Guardiola's side not in action until Sunday, when they face Wolves.
