Liverpool news: Alisson produces outrageous save from Virgil van Dijk’s shot when back is turned in warm-up to Huddersfield clash
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has been one of the signings of the season.
The Reds stopper has been an imperious figure between the sticks for Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasing side, shoring up a weakness that has costed Liverpool so dearly in recent years.
He has contributed to a league-high 20 clean sheets this term, producing several stunning saves throughout the campaign.
And on Friday evening he again added to his tally, albeit against bottom side Huddersfield, as the Reds breezed to victory.
But there was one moment of magic from the Brazilian prior to the match that has got everyone talking.
In the warm-up to the game, Virgil van Dijk decided to have a pop at goal while he had his back turned – and what happened next proved just how cat-like Alisson’s reflexes are…
The glovesman spotted the ball just as it’s about to hit the net and effortlessly plucked it over the bar in the last second.
In the game, Liverpool thrashed Huddersfield 5-0 to return to the top of the Premier League.
Doubles from both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah and a Naby Keita strike sealed a comfortable victory for the Anfield side.
The pressure is now back on Man City to beat Burnley on Sunday, with two matches remaining for both sides following that match.
