Alisson has equalled Mascherano’s Liverpool record

Posted by

Alisson went level with Javier Mascherano last night on 15 Premier League matches unbeaten at the beginning of a Liverpool career.

The Brazilian has yet to lose a match in the top flight and can break the record of any new Liverpool signing in the Premier League era if we remain undefeated on Saturday lunchtime v Bournemouth.

Stats guru Andrew Beasley tweeted as much this morning:

Mascherano arrived midway through the 2006/07 season under Rafa Benitez, when Liverpool were enjoying a great run.

Alisson though has been tremendous from Day One since arriving at the club.

Last night, he made a world-class save in the final minutes, before setting us on the counter-attack which ended up in Xherdan Shaqiri’s match winner.

Against Everton on Sunday, Alisson kept Andre Gomes’s effort of his net, against the odds, and played a role in our winner as well.

He was incredibly expensive, but we’d suggest he was worth every penny, and some.
