Liverpool's Brazil keeper Alisson Becker is out of Wednesday's Uefa Super Cup clash with Chelsea - and could face a longer lay off - after suffering a calf injury in the 4-1 Premier League opening day win over Norwich City at Anfield on Friday.
Becker went down in the 36th minute, slipping as he was playing the ball out and called for medical attention.
A stretcher was brought out but he was able to leave the field with the help of support staff.
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said it was too early to know the seriousness of the injury but Becker has no chance of playing in Wednesday's Uefa Super Cup match between the Euroepan champions and Europa League winners Chelsea in Istanbul.
"It's a calf injury. He felt as if something hit him from the back. He won't be ready for Wednesday, I can say that already," said Klopp.
"It is not good but we will find a solution and move on," added the German.
