Jordan Pickford has conceded six goals in the Premier League this season.
Alisson’s let in just one, making 10/11 saves on his goal to date.
But all anyone is talking about when analysing his performances so far is his error against Leicester, which, we remind you, cost us precisely zero points.
Everton’s stopper has had his say, too, claiming he wouldn’t make the same kind of error.
“I try not to (do tricks) because I don’t want to be caught with it. It’s a risk,” he said, cited in the Telegraph.
“If it comes off it looks good, and if it doesn’t… it’s a style of play, and I think that’s the way Liverpool want to play as well. You’ve got to give that one where mistakes will happen and it’s about not making the next one.
“For me, I’m going to try not to put myself in that position to make those mistakes. If it’s on to do, I’ll do it, and if it’s not, we’ll manage the game. For myself, that’s where I learn more. The more games you play the more game management you learn.”
We wouldn’t describe what Alisson did as a ‘trick,’ firstly.
The Brazilian wanted to change direction, but was then fouled by the onrushing Leicester attacker, before the ball was stuck in the back of our net.
It wasn’t particularly smart play, but if the officials had just blown for the blatant foul, we wouldn’t still be talking about it.
We have full confidence Alisson will retain confidence, which makes him the keeper he is – with better distribution than anybody else we’ve seen playing between the sticks.
