Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed comments made by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp regarding the fitness of Alisson Becker.
Speaking to BT Sport in his pre-match interview ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Ajax on Tuesday, Klopp confirmed that Alisson had suffered a hamstring injury and would be ruled out for around 10-14 days, meaning that the Liverpool ‘keeper could be unavailable for selection for the Reds’ Premier League fixture with Tottenham in a fortnight.
So, what did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to Jurgen Klopp’s comments regarding Alisson’s fitness?
He’ll be 100% ready for Spurs I bet.

Alisson’s importance to Klopp’s side has already been demonstrated this season, as in the two league games that Liverpool have lined up without the £72 million-rated man between the sticks, the Reds have shipped a staggering nine goals.
Do you think Alisson will be fit for the Tottenham match?
In contrast, in the eight league fixtures in which the ‘keeper has featured for Liverpool, the club have conceded just eight goals.
And with the possibility that the Brazilian may not feature against Spurs being raised, many fans of the club have taken to Twitter to air their delight.

All in all, it would appear that opinion is somewhat split amongst these Spurs fans as to whether or not they think Alisson will be fit for Tottenham’s fixture against Liverpool, with some stating their belief that the ‘keeper will be back in time, while others simply celebrated the suggestion the shot-stopper could be missing.
