Liverpool are facing huge expectations this term.

After winning the Champions League in 2019 the club have really kicked on and now find themselves as one of the top teams in world football.

Since then they've also won the Club World Championship and the Premier League as they stormed to victory ahead of rivals Manchester City and Manchester United.

Now it seems that supporters are demanding more.

It's been a solid start to the season for Jurgen Klopp's side who sit in third place with 10 points from five games.

However one key concern has been their defensive frailty.

Liverpool have conceded 13 goals in the Premier League - a tally which is the joint worst in the top flight.

Given that a solid defence was the foundation to their success last term, this will be concerning for supporters.

But the Reds can blame injuries to a certain extent.

Virgil Van Dijk suffered a nasty injury in the Merseyside derby against Everton last, while goalkeeper Alisson Becker has also missed the last two games.

The Brazilian had been ruled out with a shoulder injury which was expected to rule him out for several weeks.

But according to the Liverpool Echo, the stopper could be back in time for next week's clash with West Ham United.

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

This will be a major boost for Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's side haven't looked anywhere near as assured in defence this term and a huge part of that has been down to Alisson's injury.

The Reds have conceded a staggering nine goals in the two games that the Brazilian has missed.

That's a telling statistic that shows just how important he is for the club.

As soon as Alisson returns I'm sure that Liverpool's side will look likely a completely different team.
