(Video) Alisson Becker leaves Bruno Fernandes for dead with calm Cruyff turn inside his own box during 4-0 win at Anfield

Posted by

It was something we were a little more accustomed to seeing when he first moved to the club but Alisson Becker performed a brilliant turn against Manchester United.

During the first half, our No.1 had the ball inside his own box and Bruno Fernandes ran to press our ‘keeper and tried to produce what Sadio Mane had done against Manchester City.

Instead, our Brazilian stopper saw the pressure coming and decided to calmly move the ball away from the onrushing Portuguese midfielder.

The 29-year-old whipped out a perfectly timed Cruyff turn and before the former Sporting Lisbon man could get any nearer the ball, it had been passed to Fabinho in the midfield.

During his first season with the Reds, our then No.13 had a couple of shaky moments when he attempted turns inside his own box and many fans will hope he doesn’t try this again.

It’s all about risk and reward but you have to admit this one looked pretty great, as the man wearing No.18 was embarrassed yet again on a miserable Anfield night.
