The Brazilian’s exceptional statistics would probably prompt Jurgen Klopp into an hour-long lament, so it is no surprise that he arrived in Istanbul talking up the qualities of deputy goalkeeper Adrian rather than lingering on an absent friend.

“Maybe the best goalkeeper in the world right now,” was how Virgil van Dijk described Alisson, although he was discussing another omission at the time, the Brazilian surprisingly left out of Fifa’s 10-man shortlist for player of 2019.

There is no escaping the chasm Alisson leaves behind.

Liverpool can be forgiven for not wishing to dwell on what they have lost due to Alisson's injury ahead of the Super Cup against Chelsea.

But I don’t think Alisson needs to be on the list to be known as one of the best,” said the Dutchman, who might miss the keeper more than most.

That is why Liverpool paid £65?million to resolve a problem that lasted decades.
