A number of Liverpool fans have been purring over footage of Alisson during the Reds’ pre-season training camp in Austria.
Twitter channel @AnfieldWatch shared footage, which is attributed to LFCTV, of the Brazilian goalkeeper making a string of reactionary saves on the training ground, repeatedly darting across his goal to keep out a succession of shots being fired at the far post from his starting point.
In two seasons at Anfield, the 27-year-old has firmly established himself as the Reds’ first-choice ‘keeper, winning the Premier League Golden Glove in his first campaign in England with 21 top-flight clean sheets in 2018/19.
Indeed, Alisson has kept clean sheets in 50% of his Liverpool appearances to date (44 in 88 games) and conceded only 63 goals (0.72 per game), with the Reds’ past two Champions League campaigns demonstrating his importance to the team.
His stoppage time save in a 1-0 group stage win over Napoli in December 2018 kept Jurgen Klopp’s side in the competition as they eventually went on to win a sixth European Cup later that season. Sadly, in his injury-enforced absence earlier this year, a fateful error from Adrian sparked a comeback from Atletico Madrid which saw the Reds dethroned as champions of Europe.
Is Alisson the best goalkeeper that Liverpool have had in the Premier League era?

Liverpool fans, just how good a goalkeeper is Alisson and would the Reds have won any silverware without him over the last two years? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
