Former goalkeeper turned expert and journalist David Preece adores Alisson…
He regularly discusses Liverpool’s Brazilian and explains why he thinks our no.1 is one of the best in the business.
Last night, Alisson earned enormous plaudits for his save on Arkadiusz Milik, but his overall performance was sensational – especially with the ball at his feet.
The 26-year-old regularly began counter-attacks with smart passes from the back – as this clip below demonstrates.
In previous years, Simon Mignolet or Loris Karius knock that ball long, but Alisson finds a way to maintain us possession.
He’s just as important a signing for us as Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk, and alongside those two, has the genuine chance of winning silverware for us this season.
I know I’ll get the usual arses replying about this being a simple pass but the confidence in Alisson to be so advanced, joining in as part of the build-up and by-passing two lines of press is lovely to watch. pic.twitter.com/drbA01VrIB
