Viewers of the clash between Red Star Belgrade and Liverpool have taken to Twitter this evening to take aim at Reds’ goalkeeper Alisson.
Red Star vs Liverpool
The two sides are currently locked in action in Belgrade, with the hosts having come into proceedings having picked up just a solitary point from their opening 3 Group C fixtures.
Liverpool, meanwhile, sat top of the Group (which also contains Napoli and PSG) with 6 points.
The Reds made short work of their hosts for the evening on the opening day of the group, when Jurgen Klopp’s men put 4 past the Serbs with no reply.
However, the Premier League giants were no doubt well aware that a trip to Belgrade pose an entirely different challenge, with the Red Star Stadium known for creating an electric and often downright intimidating atmosphere:

Red Star 2-0 Liverpool
And the occasion certainly got the better of Liverpool’s stars over the course of the opening 45 minutes this evening.
Incredibly, the Reds have headed into the break 2-goals down, courtesy of a double from Milan Pavkov.
The hosts’ first, in the 22nd-minute, saw Pavkov rise highest from a corner to find the corner of the visitors’ goal with a bullet header.
Red Star’s second, meanwhile, came after James Milner needlessly gave the ball away in the middle of the park, allowing Pavkov to eventually find the top corner from 25 yards with a superb strike.
However, while the impressive nature of Pavkov’s hit could not have been called into question, the attempt made by Alisson to save the strike left a lot to be desired.
The Brazilian rather-bizarrely used his left hand, rather than his right, in his attempts to keep Pavkov’s effort out, with viewers of the clash this evening having since taken to Twitter in their droves to take aim at the Liverpool shot-stopper as a result:
Alisson with his chocolate wrists again. How he plays ahead of Ederson for Brazil is fucking mental.

Why does Alisson go for that with his left hand instead of his right

Because he’s shit. Overrated as hell, I’ve said so even before we bought him

Imagine the critism if Lloris just conceded that goal. Once again they wont say anything because its Alisson

As for Alisson, he’s hardly had anything to do all season, but he is actually fucking dodgy I’m telling you now

Lallana and Alisson are the weakest link.

Alisson turned into Mignolet on that second goal.
And people thought our midfield was poor at the weekend? Oof.

Where on earth was the defence there?? Who was closing him down?? And why is Alisson diving with his left hand instead of his right?? Idiot
