With Everton breathing down the necks of Liverpool and plenty of other clubs vying for the top four spot Klopp and his side have to get a result in order to ensure their chances of playing Champions League football next season do not slip away from their grasp.
Liverpool were dealt a major boost.
The whispers of an injury with such a crucial fixture coming up therefore were greeted with understandable angst.
Especially when they were regarding the club’s number one goalkeeper Alisson.
With Caoimhin Kelleher already ruled out due to an injury that would have meant Klopp needing to play the unreliable Adrian in goal for a fixture which is likely to see the Reds’ goalkeeper tested throughout the match.
Thankfully the Reds have been handed a welcome boost and a sigh of relief.
Speaking in a press-conference via Liverpool’s official website Jurgen Klopp dismissed claims Alisson would not be available for the match and confirmed the Brazilian goalkeeper’s fitness.
As many Liverpool fans cheered around the globe, Klopp also confirmed the availability of Naby Keita for the game which is another welcome boost.
But the most important one is undoubtedly the fact that the Reds will be able to deploy their Brazilian number one who despite making some errors in recent weeks has been one of the club’s best performers and servants under Jurgen Klopp’s era.
Alisson could decide the game between Everton. He will need to be sharp and in the right frame of mind to make sure his previous mistakes are forgotten about.
He will be coming up against the formidable Dominic Calvert-Levin so his eye needs to be fixed on the ball like a hawk and his reflexes as speedy as a cheetah.
Do you think Alisson is still the best goalkeeper in the world?
