"I think he's at that kind of age, that stage of his life and career that he can come in and slot in to the team pretty easy", Van Dijk said. Early indications suggest that the Brazilian could be out for between four to six weeks.

Liverpool defender, Virgil van Dijk, has called on those who will vote for the Ballon D'Or victor this year, to make the right choice.

Klopp's men will be hoping to continue their good start to the season when they face Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool have scored 15 goals in their four opening day Premier League matches under manager Jürgen Klopp (W3 D1 L0), netting four times in their first match of the league season in consecutive seasons for the first time in their entire history.

Liverpool could be forced to tinker with their playing style if Adrián is thrust into the starting XI for an extended period.

The report indicates that Klopp may well field a weakened team in cup games this season, as he did against Wolves in the FA Cup last season, when Liverpool were knocked out in the third round.

But more importantly, this means that it's all systems go for the latest season of Fantasy Football action.

"Alisson is very important for us but whatever the outcome (of the injury) we have to deal with it and we are going to deal with it", said Van Dijk. "We have to deal with it and we're going to deal with it".
