Liverpool fans furious as remarkable Alisson stat emerges after Europa League defeat

Liverpool fans furious as remarkable Alisson stat emerges after Europa League defeat

Liverpool were dumped out of the Europa League by Atalanta on Thursday night.

Liverpool fans have voiced their frustration after a remarkable Alisson Becker stat emerged following their Europa League elimination.

Liverpool beat Atalanta 1-0 away from home in their quarter-final second leg on Thursday night but crashed out of the competition after losing 3-1 on aggregate, following a shock 3-0 defeat at Anfield last week.

Jurgen Klopp's side had looked like staging an unlikely comeback when they took the lead in Italy after just seven minutes.

Mohamed Salah put the visitors ahead from the penalty spot following a handball in the area.

But after failing to find a second goal in the first half, they struggled to get going after the break and looked less threatening as the more wore on.

While Liverpool dominated possession, they were unable to create clear-cut chances in the second half and were eliminated from the competition having failed to put Atalanta under significant pressure.

After the match, it was revealed that goalkeeper Alisson had the second most touches (105) in the Liverpool team, just one behind Ibrahima Konate.

Liverpool fans were quick to voice their frustration with Klopp's tactics on social media.

"All we did was play at the back. It was really frustrating and then trying to Hail Mary every opportunity we had. We didn't deserve to go through," wrote one fan on X.

"All thanks to Liverpool players playing back passes and Klopp poor football tactics, every time they pass the ball backward," added a second supporter.

While a third sarcastically replied: "Tactic today Klopp? 'Pass it to Alisson'"

Liverpool must now pick themselves up for Sunday's trip to face Fulham in the Premier League.

Klopp's side are currently third in the table, level on points with Arsenal and two behind defending champions Manchester City.

It is the German's final opportunity to add to his trophy collection at Anfield before he steps down as manager in the summer, with only six games now remaining in his time on Merseyside.
