Alisson Had "The Worst Game That Anyone Has Seen For Liverpool" Vs Man City

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has been criticised for an "amateurish" performance vs Manchester City - with it being dubbed "the worst game that anyone has seen in the Premier League".


Steve McManaman played for both sides during his career and when asked about Alisson's performance, he didn't hold back.

He told Premier League Productions per Goal: "The goalkeeper has possibly had the worst game that anyone has seen in the Premier League and for Liverpool.

"They get back into the game at 1-1 and then inexplicably because he just throws the game away - not throws the game away they're the wrong words - but he puts the game out of Liverpool's reach with really amateurish mistakes.

"It's very unlike him. We know he missed the last game through illness but he was back in today.

"Even for the fourth goal which you don't want to take away from a lovely strike from Phil Foden but you're almost thinking that's a mistake by the goalkeeper too. It was really uncharacteristic play."

Alisson is known for using his feet and they got him in trouble for City's second goal by passing the ball straight to Phil Foden.

Moments later, he repeated the mistake by giving Bernardo Silva the ball who provided Raheem Sterling with the easiest of headers.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp spoke after the game and admitted he couldn't explain the 28-year-old's errors.

"I spoke to him a few seconds ago and he's obviously very disappointed," Klopp told The Guardian. "He was like: 'Not today, not today.' I said to him that's the problem with mistakes, you cannot decide when you make them.

"The only thing you can do is learn from them and he will. He will make sure it never happens to him again. Tonight it was decisive, but that's OK.

"He saved our lives I don't know how often. He's an absolutely world-class goalie. Tonight some things went a little bit wrong and we have to take that."

Klopp later added: "I said to him: 'We have stands, you can shoot the ball there.' It's a mistake, but different things came together. In the first half Ali played exceptional football and was really calm on the ball, passed it in small spaces, exactly what we wanted him to do.

"Then in the beginning of the second half he didn't do that. He didn't see the offers because we didn't make them in the right way, and then the problem is that he doesn't shoot the ball somewhere far away from the danger spots.

"I can't help him through tonight but tomorrow he will be OK and we will go again."
