Alisson Becker is perhaps Liverpool’s best ever goalkeeper, and the Brazilian has truly become a fan favourite.
We’ve now spent more than five years with Alisson – who, in addition to all the goals he has prevented, has contributed three assists in the Premier League, against Manchester United, Norwich and Manchester City – all for Mohamed Salah.
He also scored the winning goal against West Bromwich Albion in May 2021, when he converted a stoppage-time corner kick to keep Liverpool’s Champions League hopes alive – which they later managed.
We can’t get enough of this score – watch it here:
Alisson was asked what he thought when he scored the winner against the WBA in 2021.
– It wasn’t much. I thought I’d “try to sign up” and be there and help. It’s a desperate moment where you’re just trying to do anything. He says the title was great.
But this is not the result he values most when asked about his favorite moment in the Premier League
Save the Newcastle match
Alisson opted to block a shot at St James’ Park in August, when Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron scored a dream goal inside the box. A crazy save, in a game that Liverpool later turned around and won.
– I’m a goalkeeper, so I have to choose to save. Sorry, I think people will be disappointed with me for not saying the goal, Alisson tells Liverpoolfc.com.
– As a goalkeeper, you have to attack every ball, not just stand and watch the ball go into the net, you always have to try. That’s what I did with this, to be honest. It was a very difficult save, and a nice looking save. It always feels good and that day he helped the team get the three points. “I have a feeling this rescue is going to be special for us,” he says.
