Fabinho makes Alisson claim after Liverpool goalkeeper involved in heated incident with Jordan Henderson

Fabinho makes Alisson claim after Liverpool goalkeeper involved in heated incident with Jordan Henderson

Alisson clashed with Henderson during Tuesday's goalless draw with Chelsea.

Alisson produced another superb performance to save Liverpool yet again after a disappointing display from Jurgen Klopp's side against Chelsea.

Liverpool were held to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, with their Champions League qualification hopes now hanging by a thread.

Chelsea dominating much of the match and were unlucky not to score, with the home side having two goals ruled out by VAR.

Alisson was forced to make a number of saves during the match after being given little protection by an unfamiliar Liverpool back four.

Klopp opted to start the match with Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate and Kostas Tsimikas in defence, with Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold dropping to the bench and Virgil van Dijk ruled out through illness.

There was a concerning moment for Klopp midway through the second half when Alisson was involved in a heated exchange with captain Jordan Henderson.

The pair squared up to each other with Henderson at one point butting chests with the Brazilian goalkeeper before defusing the situation.

Fabinho: We have Alisson to thank

Speaking after full-time, Alisson's international teammate Fabinho praised the Brazilian goalkeeper and said Liverpool had him to thank for their point.

"It's always important to keep a clean sheet, to defend good. But we have to thank Alisson again," Fabinho told Liverpool's website.

"This season it happens regularly [that] we need Ali to help us, he's been our best player this season.

"He showed again why."

Speaking after the draw, Liverpool boss Klopp said it was a "little step in the right direction" after their 4-1 mauling at the hands of Manchester City.


"Each success starts with being difficult to beat and we have to be difficult to beat again," he said.

The draw leaves Liverpool eighth in the Premier League, seven points off the top four, while Chelsea remain 11th.

Klopp's side have another tough test this weekend when they host league leaders Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday.

Chelsea, meanwhile, travel to face Wolves at Molineux on Saturday.
