Liverpool fans on Twitter all believe Alisson for £66 million was a steal

The 2018/19 Premier League season is now 16 games old, and whilst a lot of supporters expected Manchester City to be on top at this stage, it’s Jurgen Klopp’s Reds who stand above the rest. A lot of that is down to Klopp’s transfer dealings over the summer, and the supporters have been discussing the price tag of their new goalkeeper, Alisson Becker.

The Brazilian is a one of a kind goalkeeper. He could quite easily retrain as an outfield player given how good he is with his feet and the fans all agree that the £66.8 million that they parted with back in July was an absolute bargain given the way that the ex-Roma man has been playing for them. The ‘keeper has also broken a new Liverpool record, as he’s gone 16 league games unbeaten, one more than Javier Mascherano’s 15 game streak.

As far as the man himself is concerned, 16 games unbeaten won’t mean much. What will mean a whole lot more will be trying to go the rest of the season without tasting defeat. Up until two weeks ago, there were three sides yet to be defeated in the Premier League. However, Chelsea lost to Spurs and yesterday the Blues then handed Manchester City their first defeat, leaving Liverpool alone at the top with 13 wins and three draws from their 16 games, and the fans have Alisson Becker to thank for their defensive solidity.

The Reds are all in agreement over Alisson’s brilliance and would have had issues with his performances even if they’d shelled out twice as much for him.
