Ederson has admitted Alisson is ahead of him when it comes to the Brazilian pecking order.
Brazil boss Tite only uses Ederson in rotation with Alisson; primarily when less important games are scheduled – but our no.1 always comes in for competitive games.
The Manchester City stopper has labelled the situation, ‘cruel,’ as he’d likely be starting for every other country in the world – bar perhaps Slovenia (Jan Oblak), Spain (David de Gea) and Germany (Manuel Neuer).
“Alisson is a step ahead of me at the Seleção,” he told a press conference.
“The goalkeeper position is cruel because only one of us can play, but we are both living a good phase in England.
“Alisson and I are friends. We share a very good relationship.”
Ederson is a fantastic keeper and we can imagine Jurgen Klopp was pretty annoyed when City snapped him up, as he possesses the wonderful footballing ability our manager likes.
But having seen Alisson for 22 matches now, we wouldn’t swap him for anybody in the world.
The 26-year-old has saved us time and time again, and without him, Liverpool would be in the Europa League and fifth in the Premier League table.
What a jaw-droppingly good signing, eh?
