Alisson Becker’s £65 million arrival at Liverpool in the summer of 2018 has yielded the best-ever season of the 26-year-old’s career to date.
A 97-point finish in the Premier League saw him win the Golden Glove with 21 clean sheets across the season. While, in Europe, Alisson kept 6 clean sheets in 13 games to achieve the same honour as the Reds were crowned champions.
But after his heroics for Brazil at the Copa América, Alisson’s skill in the net has stopped his side from conceding a single goal in the competition.
Alisson has now kept nine consecutive clean sheets since the tail-end of the Reds’ season and now holds the Golden Glove in the Premier League, Champions League, and the Copa América.

Of course, a 4-0 victory at Anfield completed the incredible turnaround against Barcelona in the second-leg of our Champions League semi final bout.
Alisson then kept another clean sheet in our final Premier League game of the season against Wolves.
The crucial clean sheet in the miraculous fightback obviously paved the way for the Reds to march onto Madrid as a 2-0 win over Spurs saw the Reds lift their sixth European Cup unscathed.
Departing Merseyside to undertake international duty with Brazil, the 26-year-old stopper then kept a clean sheet in a 7-0 international friendly warm up against Honduras.
Once the Copa América got underway in full-force in Alisson’s native Brazil, A Seleção beat Bolivia 3-0, played out a 0-0 draw with Venezuela, beat Peru 5-0, before another goaless draw against Paraguay.
Most recently, the Reds ‘keeper, together with Roberto Firmino, helped Brazil achieve a 2-0 victory over Argentina to imperiously reach the final of the tournament.
It is an absolutely unbelievable record for Alisson, whose debut season with the Reds has established him as one of the world’s very best between the sticks.
