Liverpool: Van Dijk backs Adrián while Alisson is out

Krawietz Exclusive ‘A couple of draws could separate us and City this season

"So that's a very experienced solution but in the moment when Caoimhin is back then obviously Adrian is No.1, Caoimhin probably No.2 but we have to see how then he can have some games with the U23s or U21s [so] that he gets match practice as well". I don't think he wanted to sit only on the bench for the next couple of years.

Virgil van Dijk believes goalkeeper Adrián San Miguel's extensive Premier League experience will help him easily adjust to replacing the injured Alisson at Liverpool.

"I don't think we can just rely on what we faced in the past".

"I think the main thing in our minds is that we still see ourselves as underdogs, we still see ourselves as a hungry team that hasn't achieved what we want to achieve yet".

"His experience is the main thing, he knows what he is doing".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was wise to note that despite the emphatic scoreline in Sunday's 4-0 win over Chelsea, his rebuilding job at Manchester United remains a "work in progress".


Free signing Adrian (32), who was released by West Ham at the end of last season, will deputise for Alisson while another free agent Andy Lonergan (35) has agreed terms on a short-term deal with the Reds having being part of Liverpool's squad during pre-season.

The clash with Chelsea comes just three days before a tricky trip to Southampton in the Premier League.

Of course, it goes without saying that there's still a whole lot to play for - 37 games worth, to be precise - and there are sure to be plentiful twists and turns along the way in what is hopefully another fantastic season of top flight football.

"It's [the start of the campaign] a bit more strenuous than usual, but it's why we're here and it's our aim".

When asked about Liverpool's status as continental champions, Gomez responded: "Obviously it's a label that's given now that we achieved what we did last season".

"We're all enjoying it and soaking it up".
