Still, we enjoyed the performance, and it’s made even better with this superb stat below from Twitter numbers man Statman Dave.
Incredibly, our Brazilian goalkeeper – in chipping the ball over a Brighton player – actually completed more dribbles than three of our best outfield players put together…
Alisson completed more dribbles vs. Brighton (1) than Andy Robertson, Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino combined.

The guy really is a ridiculous talent, and even if he might need to tone down the show-boating a bit as the season goes on, he’s sure to be great entertainment for the most part.
Naby should be disappointed though, with the Guinean maestro capable of better based on what we’ve seen so far.
Not that any of this matters of course, with Liverpool being top of the league with three wins out of three and three clean sheets the only stats that truly matter tonight!
