We don’t want to use this clip as a stick to beat either Simon Mignolet or Loris Karius, but both were passive and lacked vocal leadership abilities between Liverpool’s sticks.
As keepers, they were passive, but Alisson is cut from an entirely different cloth…
A clip is doing the rounds on Twitter that shows the Brazilian bollocking his own team-mates in the 95th minute of the Merseyside Derby and telling them to get up field so we could launch one final counter-attack.
Even Virgil van Dijk listens to him!
Moments later, Alisson sprinted out of his goal and created a better angle for Trent Alexander-Arnold to fire his long ball into Everton’s box, which eventually led to Divock Origi’s freak goal.
Alisson had arguably kept us in the match earlier on with a world-class save from Andre Gomes and more smart play as the visitors pushed.
The summer signing has played an enormous part in our excellent start to the Premier League season and it cannot be underestimated. So far, Liverpool have conceded just five goals in the top flight, the best record of any team in Europe.
Alissson made 2 brilliant saves, but this might have been his key input, time had already ran out, our kids were busy beefing. No fucking around with this fella!! pic.twitter.com/uBOcBqujLe
