‘Up there with Mo Salah’ – Liverpool fans blown away by £66.8m star’s Southampton performance

Posted by

There was an element of trepidation surrounding Liverpool’s meeting with Southampton, with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men presenting something of a potential banana skin to dampen the positive mood in Merseyside.

The performance of Jurgen Klopp’s men left no doubt about the Reds’ intentions domestically, however, with a four-goal display brushing aside the Saints to bring back the Anfield-based outfit to within a point of league leaders Chelsea.

During and following the convincing English top-flight demolition, a number of fans were keen to jump onto Twitter to laud the contributions of the side’s No.1, Alisson Becker, who proved to be utterly instrumental throughout.

The Brazilian international bailed out his teammates on numerous occasions throughout the first-half as Southampton threatened to find an equaliser for Diogo Jota’s early opener.

Whilst the likes of Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk are often quick to soak up the praise and adoration from fans and commentators alike, special mention deserves to be given to the shotstopper for his importance to this Liverpool side.

Though keeping up our goalscoring form will undoubtedly pay dividends down the line, a quality ‘keeper (as we learned following Alisson’s £66.8m move from Roma in 2018) can be the difference between titles and nearly-seasons.
