Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is making steady progress as he continues his recovery from a calf injury, according to Liverpool’s goalkeeping coach John Achterberg.

Notably, the Brazil international had to be substituted during the opening fixture of the Premier League season against Norwich City, which the Reds won 4-1. Adrian has since deputised for the Reds.

“In the last few days he has been out on the pitch to do some catching and footwork, as well as small passing drills,” Achterberg told Mirror.

“He has made steady progress. It needs time and we cannot look too far ahead, so we take each day as it comes, see how he feels, and then make progress from that,” he said, adding, “Ali has been working with Dave (Rydings, rehabilitation fitness coach) in the gym a lot to improve the strength and try to keep the fitness levels up.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool will look to continue their dominance in the Premier League at home to Newcastle United on Saturday before facing Napoli midweek.
