Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp isn't sure if goalkeeper Adrian will be fit to face Southampton this weekend.


Adran is a doubt for the Reds' Premier League clash against the Saints at the St. Marys stadium on Saturday afternoon because he was mistakenly injured by a pitch invader at the Vodafone Arena.


The Spaniard, who joined the Merseyside club this summer, became a Reds hero as he helped his new side seal the Super Cup after saving Tammy Abraham's spot-kick.


When asked if the performance on Wednesday would boost Adrian's confidence, Klopp said in a press conference on Friday as BBC Sport reported: "It would help him a lot if it was 100 per cent clear he can play tomorrow.


"When we were all together (celebrating after the match), a supporter jumped over something, was chased by some security guys, slipped and kicked his (Adrian's) ankle. It's crazy.


"Yesterday, it was swollen. Today I spoke to him and he said 'it's much better than yesterday', but we have to see.


"Apart from that, it was a brilliant night for him, not only because of the penalty but also because of the game."


Alisson's injury has led to Liverpool signing Andy Lonergan on a short-term contract, and the former Preston and Leeds goalkeeper could feature if Adrian doesn't recover quickly.


Klopp said: "(Caoimhin) Kelleher is now in training as well, so we have them.


"If we have to make a decision, we have to make a decision.


"Adrian came in a week before, Andy Lonergan trained longer with us, played half-time in one of the pre-season games."
