Alisson Becker's Liverpool Career Touch Map Is A Thing Of Art

Alisson Becker's incredible injury time winning goal for Liverpool vs West Brom has been immortalised in his brilliant career touch map.

With time all but out, and Liverpool's chances of getting into next season's Champions League quickly fading, Becker ran from his goal to join the attack.

The Reds were already past the minimum four minutes added on when the Brazilian ran up for a corner but Mike Dean allowed the set piece to be taken.

The Brazilian leapt above everyone and scored a magnificent goal to secure all three points for Jurgen Klopp's side.

It's just the third time in his Liverpool career he's been far enough up the pitch to touch the ball in the opposition half, and the first time in the opponent's box.

The former Roma keeper was extremely emotional after the winner and he dedicated his first ever career goal to his dad, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

"I'm too emotional, these last months, for everything that happened with me - with my family," he said, speaking eloquently in his second language.

"But football is my life. I play since I remember, as a human being, with my father. I hope he was here to see it, but I'm sure that he's seeing - with God on his side - and celebrating."

The 28-year-old wasn't the only one whose emotions went into overdrive as he headed the former Premier League champions into an important lead.

The goal was extremely important for the team's season as it left them just one point behind Chelsea with only two games to play.

The Blues face third place Leicester City, who they lost to in the FA Cup over the weekend, on Tuesday night in an extremely important game.

As the two sides directly above Liverpool can't both take all six points from the final two games, the Reds are in a great position to get into next season's Champions League, despite a poor season.
