Liverpool vs Brighton & Hove Albion: Andy Robertson waxes lyrical about Alisson

The Brazilian shot-stopper has been a calming presence between the sticks for the Reds.

Liverpool fans can’t stop raving about Alisson’s performances and it appears that Andy Robertson, the Brazilian’s teammate, has joined the bandwagon as well after the shot-stopper’s excellent display in the 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday night.

“He’s been brilliant since he came in. It’s no disrespect to Loz (Loris Karius) or Si (Mignolet), but he’s been brilliant since he came in and I’m sure the lads said the same with the other keepers when they first came in,” the Scottish left-back told the club website.

Alisson made a number of superb stops, notably in the second-half, but it was his calm dink over an onrushing Brighton player that drew gasps from the Anfield crowd.

“He’s a real presence at the back, you can see him coming out for corners and crosses and you’ve seen his wee chip got applause from the crowd, but I’m not sure if the gaffer wants to see that too many times!”

So far, Liverpool have not only won all three of their Premier League games, but they have kept a clean sheet in each of them as well.

For a side that was criticised for their leaky defence, that is a remarkable improvement and one of many reasons why many feel the Reds can go all the way this season.

“But fair play to him and that’s the confidence he’s playing with and it breeds onto the defence. When we needed him he came alive and palmed it away. Fair play to him so far, he’ll be delighted with three clean sheets and long may it continue.”
