Loads of Liverpool fans have been running the rule over their win against Brighton, and there is an overwhelming sense of relief regarding summer signing Alisson Becker.
It’s been about a decade since Liverpool had a dependable goalkeeper, but it looks like Jürgen Klopp has pulled a stroke of genius by pulling the trigger to sign Alisson.
The Reds weren’t at their best on Saturday evening, beating Brighton 1-0 courtesy of a lovely first half strike from Mohamed Salah.
While the performance wasn’t perfect, Alisson was in fine form, making several good saves and exerting authority over his defence throughout the match.

The Brazilian stopper has got a huge weight on his shoulders due to the size of the transfer fee, but he looks totally unfazed, rushing on to a hospital pass in the second half and chipping the ball causally over the onrushing Anthony Knockaert.
While many fans and neutrals alike expected this clash to be a walk in the park for the Reds, the big summer signing was called into important action late on, saving down to his left after Pascal Groß found space in the box.
Liverpool fans are loving their latest Brazilian import, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Composure at its finest.
I love this man.

That was a hard fought result. Lads decision making in the second half was atrocious. The back 5 were outstanding. Alisson already worth 4 points in just 3 games. Absolute bargain that lad.
