Twitter reacts to Alisson’s mistake vs Man United

Alisson the best keeper in the Premier League?

Liverpool signed Alisson over the summer from AS Roma as they looked to finally solve their goalkeeping problems.

To an extent, they appear to have done so.

Prior to Liverpool’s game with Manchester United on Sunday, Alisson had conceded just six goals in 16 league games, the best record in the league.

Alisson was also the hero during the week as Liverpool beat Napoli 1-0 in the Champions League to progress to the next round.

After the game, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was full of praise for the Brazilian, writing in his column for the Telegraph, Carragher stated:

“Alisson has taken Jurgen Klopp’s side to the next level – his performances already worth as least six points after half a season. Probably more.

“In Alisson, Liverpool may have recruited their De Gea. If they win the title, they will have their Schmeichel.”

Alisson’s mistake vs Man United

After Carragher compared Alisson to David de Gea, the two went head to head on Sunday as Liverpool faced Man United.

Liverpool needed to win to go back top of the league after Man City beat Everton on Sunday.

The game started off well for Liverpool as Sadio Mane put them 1-0 up in the 24th minute.

However, Jesse Lingard would draw United level in the 33rd minute.

United would play a simple cross across the box and it should have been an easy catch for Alisson.

Instead, the Brazilian spilt it, which allowed Lingard to tap it in for 1-1.
