Alisson promises not to change his style of play

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has had a fine start to his Premier League campaign. He hasn’t conceded a single goal in the three matches so far. In the match against Brighton last weekend, Alisson made some commendable saves, the most notable of those being a late save from Pascal Gross.

However, the moment which caught the eyes of the fans came during the 69th minute. Brighton winger Anthony Knockeart was closing in on the Liverpool goal. At this stage, Alisson came towards the Liverpool penalty area and chipped the ball over Knockaert’s head before passing it to Virgil van Dijk. The Brazilian’s audacious skill at that moment became the subject of social media virality.

However, there were some moments in the match that might have put Liverpool in a spot of bother, specially when Glenn Murray almost forced two errors out of him.

Nevertheless, Alisson has vowed not to change his style of play. He said, “I try my best to help the team in the build-up. If sometimes there is a situation where there is dribbling, I do it carefully. It could be too risky, but it’s part of the game, we are a team that plays from the back with the ball on the ground. That’s part of the team’s characteristics. Mistakes may happen, but we work hard during the week to do everything correctly during the matches.”

The Brazilian added, “Hopefully I will keep helping the team, it is a teamwork. I have my contribution, but I am not the main responsible for the clean sheets. If we do not concede we will be close to winning because our attack is really good. I’m very comfortable at the club in a great environment, with everybody pushing in the same direction to win.”

Liverpool next face Leicester City on Saturday.
