Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian could miss his side’s Premier League game against Southampton on Saturday after a collision with a pitch invader.
Manager Jurgen Klopp says the Spaniard was injured during post-match celebrations following Liverpool’s win over Chelsea in the Super Cup on Wednesday.
“A supporter jumped over something, slipped and kicked his ankle. It is swollen but we have to see,” Klopp said after Adrian saved Tammy Abraham’s penalty in the shootout win.
Klopp says Liverpool’s third-choice keeper Andy Lonergan, 35, who was an unused substitute for the game in Istanbul which finished 2-2 after extra time, is “ready” to deputise for Adrian if the 32-year-old is ruled out.
Liverpool’s first-choice keeper Alisson is sidelined with a calf injury. .
“Andy Lonergan is in training with (Caoimhin) Kelleher and we have them if we have to make a decision,” Klopp said of his back-up options.
“Adrian was a week before, Lonergan has trained with us. We will see. Kelleher has potential but is not 100% yet.”
