Jürgen Klopp has confirmed Alisson Becker has made a return to training ahead of Liverpool's Premier League trip to Crystal Palace.

The goalkeeper has been sidelined since picking up an injury in the 1-1 draw away at Manchester City last month.

Alexis Mac Allister, meanwhile, is a major doubt for Saturday lunchtime's encounter at Selhurst Park following the knock he sustained in the win against Sheffield United in midweek.

​​​​​Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Klopp said: "Alisson looks good, I don't know if good enough now for tomorrow. I have to check that with the coaches and the medical department, and with Ali, of course.

"Macca doesn't look good, so we have to see day by day. They were pretty hopeful after the game that it was not serious. It's not that serious but in the period of the year if you are out for five days, it's 12 games pretty much.

"We have to wait there how he shows up here today. I don't expect him to be ready for tomorrow, I don't know about Thursday or Sunday after that, so it's pretty much stop and go. We have to see."

On whether Alisson had returned to training, the Reds boss added: "Yes, yesterday. Yesterday he trained normal."

Klopp was also asked about the future of defender Joel Matip, who is in the final year of his contract at Anfield and suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury last weekend versus Fulham.

He said: "Yeah, I'm pretty sure the club will show their class, just how you should do it. I'm pretty sure the club told Joel already that whatever happens, so as long as he is injured, everything is fine.

"And now we have to make a decision together with Joel how it looks after that. That's a normal thing to do. But, yes, he deserves all the support from us obviously and he will get it."
