Alisson hint, Arsenal date & teenager linked – Latest LFC News

With just three days separating our trips to Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, there was as much Liverpool news as you might imagine on Thursday!

 

Alisson return imminent?

In news that will be music to your ears, Alisson has provided us with a tease which suggests we could see him back in action sooner rather than later.

The Brazilian has been out of action since picking up a hamstring problem towards the end of last month’s 1-1 draw at Man City, with many hoping he would recover in time to face the other half of Manchester at Anfield.

A somewhat cryptic post on his Instagram story might indicate that we will get our wish, with the No. 1 posting a picture with his gloves to insinuate that he is back in training with the Reds.

His return date had been expected to fall in time for the visit of Erik ten Hag’s side on December 17, and it appears we are still on track for that.

Caoimhin Kelleher has proven himself to be a more than capable deputy in recent years, but this is still a sight for sore eyes, to say the least!

Video of the day and match of the night

The boss has said he believes Man United are involved in this season’s title race. It’s polite of him to say it but we don’t believe you, Jurgen!

Our blue neighbours are in action this Thursday night as they look to claw back the 10 points they were deducted for disgracing the Premier League with their blatant cheating.

They host Newcastle at 7.30pm (GMT) and you can watch all of the action unfold on Amazon Prime, if you happen to have it!
