Alisson Undaunted by Liverpool’s Packed December Schedule

13/11/2019 4:45 PM

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson says his team will be prepared for a crammed festive schedule which sees the Reds play ten matches in the calendar month.

The European champions will play in the Club World Cup in Doha as well as negotiating the traditional festive fixture list.

Liverpool will play two games in 24 hours with a Carabao Cup quarter-final away at Aston Villa, followed by a World Club Cup match in Doha 24 hours later.

However, Alisson is confident that his team has the squad to cope. “December is certainly a very important month for us,” he told ESPN Brasil. “We will have a lot of games now.

“I think there will be ten matches in a month. It’s quite a thing. So more than ever we have to have maturity. Important that for sure Klopp will rotate players. So whoever comes in has to come in very well.

“We have to do our best because we can get the best possible results within these ten matches. We obviously want to go to the World Cup of Clubs and win it, and we want to continue our pace in the Premier League and the Champions League as well.”
