Recovery from injury
Alisson is the first-choice goalkeeper at Liverpool, but the Brazil international has not played since he suffered a calf injury against Norwich City on the opening day of the Premier League season.
This means that Adrian will have to drop out, with the former West Ham United goalkeeper having played regularly since Alisson suffered the injury.
The 32-year-old goalkeeper joined the Reds in the summer transfer window on a free after leaving West Ham at the end of last season.
Former Liverpool goalkeeper Kirkland believes that Adrian will not create any problem when manager Jurgen Klopp drops him for Alisson.
Kirkland told The Times: “Adrian will have known when he signed that he was playing second fiddle to Alisson.
“There will be no throwing his toys out of the pram. Jurgen Klopp has said he has been a big personality around the club since signing.
“He will support Alisson now. Calf injuries are horrible and you can’t take any chances with them. It is a hell of a game for Alisson to come back into.”
