Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had an issue on his hands on Friday night after Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson had to be substituted after picking up a calf problem, and wasn't risked. 

However, Klopp confirmed the bad news on Monday revealing Alisson would be out for a few weeks, and will miss the game against Chelsea. 

"It's a calf injury, which takes him out for a while. I don't want to make an exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure, so we will have to see."

Despite the news, Chelsea have other things to be more concerned about - themselves. After their defeat to Manchester United, they need to sure themselves up for Wednesday night, and that starts with stopping the lethal attack which includes Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane.
