Liverpool Twitter has been flooded with injury rumours.

The Reds take on Ajax on Tuesday night, just days after the disappointing 1-1 draw against Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

We’ve been struck down with several injury problems over the past few weeks, and we’re still some weeks away from seeing our best players back in action.

Thiago hurt his knee against Everton in the Merseyside derby and he still hasn’t come back into the first-team fold, while Xherdan Shaqiri and Trent Alexander-Arnold are still out of action.

Naby Keita may be fit enough for Tuesday, said Jurgen Klopp, but the German refused to be drawn into any specifics.

This is the context to the news that began to flood Liverpool Twitter, which caused a few panicked moments from fans.

According to some people, the Brazilian goalkeeper has been struck down with an injury and won’t be available for the Champions League game on Tuesday. One account even tried to claim that he’s picked up COVID and will be out for two weeks.

Where these horrible rumours started and where they ended isn’t clear, but there has been no official word from Liverpool about Alisson and therefore we have to assume that they are false.

The Brazilian has been in top form since he came back into the side following a spell out injured. Adrian may have started his Reds career well, but his reputation has gone downhill following some pretty average performances in the Champions League and some Premier League mistakes.

We can be sure that Ali will be between the sticks when the Dutch come to town. With the Eredivisie side topping the table and playing some eye-catching football, we’re going to need our full defensive strength to pick up some points.

Don’t believe the rumours, our star goalkeeper isn’t injured.
