Klopp: Alisson has settled quickly at Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has every faith new goalkeeper Alisson Becker will settle quickly into the Premier League.

The Brazil international was, until Chelsea signed Kepa Arrizabalaga this week, the world's most expensive goalkeeper following his £65million move from Roma.

His recruitment is seen as a key piece of business for Liverpool, strengthening an area which has been open to criticism for several years.

Alisson came to pre-season training later than the main group because of his involvement in the World Cup and has played just two friendlies against Napoli and Torino in the last six days.

However, Klopp has no worries about the 25-year-old making an instant impact.

"Just be a goalkeeper. Be yourself, in this case, because he is very calm and laid back - and that helps," said the Reds boss ahead of Sunday's visit of West Ham.

"It's about making the right decisions in the right moments. It's all good. He's settled really quick, as if he's been here longer than two weeks. That's all fine."
