Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to the weekend’s action, and they’re once again absolutely full of praise for summer signing Alisson Becker.
Liverpool were forced to settle for a draw at Old Trafford on Sunday, spurning a golden opportunity to move three points clear of Manchester City.
The Reds started brightly against their old foes, but completely lost their rhythm as the game waned on, failing to create any clear-cut chances.
The Red Devils weren’t exactly carving their opponents up either, as they were limited to just one golden chance.
Romelu Lukaku’s smart pass found Jesse Lingard six yards out, but Liverpool’s Brazilian shot-stopper smothered it instantly and expertly, looking completely comfortable in an extremely hostile atmosphere.
Alisson arrived at Anfield last summer for a fee worth up to £66.8m, per BBC, and the 26 year-old has fixed perhaps the club’s most long-running weak spot in the squad.
He has 15 clean sheets already in the Premier League this season, just two less than the last Liverpool goalkeeper to win the league’s Golden Glove award – Pepe Reina kept 15 clean sheets in the 09/10 season.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where fans have highlighted the number 13 as Sunday’s silver lining…
Alisson Becker was worth every pound. #MUNLIV

Alisson just stopped us from enduring a goal from Lingard. Worth every penny.

Keepers are the worst. However, Alisson might be worth his price tag.

What a save yesterday too! Money very well spent he’s a rock the lad

Alisson is outstanding. Does the basic things without fail and delivers in the majority of biggest moments. Things like the save from Lingard or the header in the Derby are the kind of moments that win titles.

Nobody talking about Alisson today? He was class. On the ball and very commanding!

If that was Karius or Mignolet, that would be a certain goal. Alisson is simply world class without a doubt. ??

Alisson’s timing & command of his area makes a lot of what he does look routine.
This is a great example. It’s brilliant goalkeeping, at a crucial time in a crucial game. pic.twitter.com/QgCAhASbr1
