Four Liverpool players are still attending Melwood, including injured keeper Allisson, amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The Reds’ first-team squad have been working to individual training programmes at home after their usual base was shut down last week in an attempt to help prevent the spread of the pandemic.

Xherdan Shaqiri, Nathaniel Clyne, Yasser Larouci and Alisson have all been visiting Melwood this week to get treatment for their respective injuries. The arrival times of the injured quartet have been staggered so to limit interaction with each other and the remaining medical staff.

Alisson, who hasn’t played since suffering a hip injury ahead of the FA Cup defeat at Chelsea earlier this month, has revealed on Instagram what his daily routine is like with the remainder of Liverpool’s other players all working from home.

“The club’s guidance is that everyone stays at home,” said the Brazilian on Instagram. “In my case it’s a little bit different, because I have an injury.

“Thank goodness, it wasn’t a very serious injury, but every injury needs care and I have continued the treatments at the training centre. I don’t have any contact with my teammates, as everyone is in their homes.

“The only contact I have is with the physio and the goalkeeper trainer doing some specific rehabilitation work.




“And within these situations, we also take all the necessary precautions for all recommendations, such as hand hygiene, not touching the face, not touching the mouth, nose, eyes.


“We also try to talk at a distance. Besides them, I have no contact with anyone else.

“My routine is very defined. I leave the house, go to the training centre, finish the treatment, come home and stay at home in this moment of self isolation.”
