The Reds had a 2-0 lead until the Brazil international handled the ball outside of the area, leaving referee Martin Atkinson no choice but to dismiss him from the field.
The visiting striker Leandro Trossard was clear through on goal and looked certain to score until the illegal intervention from Alisson.
Despite his sending off, the Reds maintained their eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League after two first-half goals from Virgil van Dijk secured the three points for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
