Alisson replaces Karius as Liverpool's number one

Alisson has been handed Liverpool's number one shirt for the 2019-20 season. 

The Brazil goalkeeper, who is on international duty at the Copa America, inherits the jersey from Loris Karius.

German goalkeeper Karius retained the number last term despite being sent on loan to Besiktas following his error-strewn performance in the Reds' Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has also been given a new shirt number as the England midfielder continues to bounce back from a serious knee injury.
