Alisson Becker's 2021/22 highlights have gone viral, with fans hailing a stellar season in between the sticks for Liverpool's No.1.
After the error-heavy performance from Loris Karius in the 2018 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, Liverpool immediately went out and splashed out £66.8 million on Alisson from Roma.
The Brazilian became the most expensive goalkeeper in history but the move was one of the best Liverpool have ever made.
In Alisson, the Reds have an unbelievably reliable shot-stopper who is perfect for the way they play.
And last term, the Internacional youth product was at his imperious best and was deservedly named in the PFA Team of the Year.
A four minute compilation has showed just how consistent Alisson was for Liverpool and has many believing he would have been a worthy PFA Player of the Year.
In all honesty, Ali was my number 1 player of the season. He pulled some really incredible saves to either earn us a point or keep our lead. And his technique of not going to ground easily when the striker tries to round him is just exceptional. Saved us many times— Tunmise Eyiaro (@tunmise_eyiaro) June 18, 2022
Player of the season and should be our 2nd choice captain— Anand Ganesh (@Anandlfc_) June 18, 2022
So many of his saves seem ordinary. But that's because his positioning is so good. Never having to fly about the place. Plus.. is there anyone better 1 on 1?— PaulV (@PaulVall17) June 19, 2022
Easily one of the best single performances from a player in a season in PL history— J (@jviibe1) June 19, 2022
This guy will go down as one of the greatest goal keepers in premier League history.— Wesleigh wild (@wesleighwild5) June 18, 2022
Absolutely unbelievable .
Makes it look so easy.
Not because I'm a Liverpool fan but honestly I've never seen a better GK 1 on 1 🥵— Mayank Girdhar (@GirdharMayank1) June 19, 2022
Probably the best GK I’ve seen at 1 on 1 situations— Guest Race Previews (@Liam97468453) June 18, 2022
Best thing is that nothing is flashy and knows it never needs to be. Compared to all the other keepers who try all sorts. Instils so much confidence in the team.— Matthew Joseph (@MattJoseph459) June 19, 2022
People won’t want to hear this, as he’s a current player.— Jack (@MagnifiedFutbol) June 19, 2022
Alisson will end his career as the greatest keeper in Premier League history, maybe even generally of all time. He’s so complete, has absolutely no weakness, has won honours & is currently creating his longevity. https://t.co/hC6uTDN5a6
We deserve Alisson after years of Pepe Reina and Simon Mignolet https://t.co/UpKMJDAssV— Chris (@ChrisHPE) June 19, 2022
If we didnt have this guy… we would be mid table lol https://t.co/3pqgXldIJS— Lu Nuñez 🇺🇾 (@lupinkz) June 19, 2022
He had a season the equivalent of scoring 40 goals as a striker, but because he's a goalkeeper no-one put him in Ballon D'or discussions https://t.co/XdZOSatwDQ— 🇵🇸 (@_JakeeLFC_) June 19, 2022
He made a number of brilliant saves - with one of the most impressive coming against new teammate Darwin Nunez in a Champions League game at Anfield after he somehow tipped his goal-bound effort around the post.
Liverpool play with such a high line in order to always be on the front foot in games. That approach runs the risk of leaving a whole lot of space in behind but that's where Alisson well and truly proves his worth.
The 29-year-old is so proactive and extremely adept in 1v1 situations, smelling and anticipating the danger. It's hard to think of anybody better.
Sometimes even when the attacker has seemingly rounded Alisson, he somehow manages to sprawl to still make the save.
It's one of his most unique traits as a goalkeeper - the result of his experiencing playing handball - and one that makes him so hard to beat.
Alisson's heroics kept Liverpool in contention for an unprecedented quadruple going into the final stretch of the season and he made the crucial penalty save that secured the FA Cup win at Wembley.
His manager Jurgen Klopp put it best last season, saying: "Alisson Becker is the best goalkeeper in the world for me. There are top goalies out there but this keeper is insane."
