JUERGEN KLOPP ENTERS NEWS CONFERENCE 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP SAYING: "It would help him a lot if it would be 100% clear that he could play tomorrow.

I really don't understand why in the world of social media when we are all together, a supporter jumped over something, was chased by some security guys, slipped and kicked his [Adrian's] ankle.

Crazy!

Yesterday it was swollen, today I spoke to him and he says it is much better than yesterday, but we have to see.

Apart from that yes, it was a brilliant night for him for sure, not only because of the penalty but especially because of the game.

I think he saved the penalty and he was in the mood in the penalty shootout because of the game he played before.

So that was all good, we will have to wait and see." ISTANBUL, TURKEY (AUGUST 14, 2019) (REUTERS PICTURES - ACCESS ALL) 3.

STILL IMAGE OF ADRIAN HOLDING UEFA SUPER CUP STORY:

Class="kln">Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian is doubtful for Saturday's (August 17) Premier League trip to Southampton after sustaining a freak injury while celebrating their UEFA Super Cup victory over

Class="kln">Chelsea, manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday (August 16).

Adrian, signed on a free transfer earlier this month, only came into the side to fill in for first-choice keeper Alisson who suffered a calf injury in the opening Premier League victory over Norwich City last week.

The Spaniard became a club hero only days after joining by blocking Tammy Abraham's penalty to hand Klopp's side a 5-4 shootout victory on Wednesday (August 14).

However, he was left with a swollen ankle after a supporter who invaded the pitch to join in their celebrations slipped and kicked his foot.

The setback leaves Liverpool short of their two main keepers, but Klopp said back-ups Andrew Lonergan and Caoimhin Kelleher were ready if needed.

Midfielder Naby Keita was also ruled out after picking up a muscle strain ahead of the clash with Chelsea.
