A number of Liverpool fans heaped praise on goalkeeper Alisson as he recorded yet another clean sheet for the Premier League leaders this afternoon.
While the Reds eventually ran out 4-0 winners at home to Southampton, they were at times indebted to the Brazilian during a goalless first half. As noted by James Nalton of This Is Anfield, he needed to react quickly to get to a Moussa Djenepo effort while also blocking a powerful strike from Shane Long and rushing out to thwart Danny Ings on the stroke of half-time.
The 27-year-old made four saves in total against the Saints (as per SofaScore) and registered his ninth clean sheet in the league this season, the joint-most in the division, with an exceptional record of just one goal conceded in his last 10 matches in the Premier League. He also contributed to Liverpool’s third goal by picking out Jordan Henderson with a pinpoint long pass as the captain then set up Mohamed Salah to dink the ball over Alex McCarthy and into the visitors’ net (as per Sky Sports).
These Liverpool fans on Twitter expressed their delight with the performance of Alisson as he added to his impressive clean sheets tally, with one Reds supporter hailing him as superior to current PFA Player of the Year Virgil van Dijk and another describing him as a “godsend“:
