Liverpool have been unlucky this season to say the least. Jürgen Klopp has had to deal with crisis after crisis, putting together a squad with odds and ends at times. He was recently forced into a change by a family tragedy. Some Liverpool fans have reacted to news that Alisson is set to return against Chelsea.
Liverpool set to face Chelsea
This week the Reds welcome Chelsea to Anfield.
The fixture is sure to be crucial to the top four race with both sides in contention for a Champions League spot.
Thomas Tuchel will be keen to get one over the man he has mirrored throughout this career, the pair of them having managed Mainz and Borussia Dortmund.
Aside from the implications for the league table the fixture is always a big one due to the bitter rivalry between the sides. We frankly hate each other.

It is a division which runs deeper than football. This is Liverpool against West London’s upper crust.
Alisson return v Chelsea
Last weekend the Reds took on Sheffield United with Adrian in goal.
The Spaniard was standing in for Alisson with the Brazilian on compassionate leave following the sudden passing of his father.
Jürgen Klopp has confirmed that Alisson is set to return against Chelsea.
The boss told a pre-match press conference that Fabinho is also in contention and Diogo Jota will be assessed ahead of the game.
The news comes as great relief to many supporters, whilst Adrian didn’t make any mistakes at the weekend the fear is always there and he was incredibly disappointing when we played Chelsea in the FA Cup last year.
