He wants to be on the team-sheet tonight after coming off the bench against Norwich at the weekend.

"The reception he got [on Friday], I think he feels as though the supporters are already behind him".

"So for sure I have been playing professional football and never even had holiday for seven years so I am used to it".

But after ending a long wait for a major trophy last season in Madrid, Kop boss Jurgen Klopp is keen for more silverware - starting here in Istanbul.

"It is the first one, so maybe that makes it more special, but I hope it is not the last".

With the extent of Alisson's injury still not confirmed, Liverpool might be looking at a familiar face to help them in the meantime as the Brazilian worldwide heals from his calf injury.

The German is now preparing his side for the European Super Cup clash with Chelsea on Wednesday before a trip to Southampton.

The 26-year-old Brazilian damaged a calf during the first half of Friday night's 4-1 Premier League victory over Norwich and while the club has put no timescale on his recovery, Klopp is expecting to have to do without the Champions League victor for some time.

"We will see but we can have obviously a lot of players on the bench there which is good and I think Andy will be one of them".

"Recently-signed Adrian will step in for Alisson at the Vodafone Arena and he was backed to impress on his first start for the Reds by new team-mate Virgil van Dijk". But after that we need to think about the Southampton game, we come back on Thursday and two days later we play Southampton, so we can not ignore that game as well. So that's what we try and then he will be fine.

"We need him and he needs us".
