Lots of Liverpool fans are drooling over a 10-second clip from their win over Norwich on Saturday, as the club shared some footage of Alisson Becker’s superb distribution.
Liverpool’s £81m-rated (Transfermarkt) goalkeeper is having a ridiculously good season, leading the Premier League in clean sheets despite only playing 18 times due to injury and suspension. The 27 year-old’s numbers this season are scarcely believable, outperforming his expected goals against by 90% and saving a remarkable 87% of the shots on target he has faced.
Looking beyond his shot-stopping abilities though, both he and compatriot Ederson Moraes have formed quite the reputation for their ability to become part of their side’s build-up play, triggering fast counter-attacks and genuine goalscoring opportunities with their kicking and throwing. This was on full display against Norwich, as the Reds official Twitter account shared a short clip showing off Alisson’s vision with the ball.
Fans were loving the tweet, as you can see in their reactions down below…
Look at him scanning every option available. And an arm like a Major Leagie pitcher too 😍 https://t.co/fTfejtx9c5

Will never forget what he did last seconds v MU when I’m shouting “lay on it and waste time”.

Best part of this…he’s looking to play as far forward as is possibly safe to. Not happy just to give it to the centre backs all the time like lots

He sees things we’ll never see!

More like nfl quarterback

The most irreplaceable player on the pitch. Who in world football could we replace him with? Safe to say we wouldn’t be anywhere near the position we’re in without him

By far the most intelligent keeper I’ve ever seen… Always looking for that opportunity to get us on the counter attack.

The guy is a dream to watch!
