Liverpool Goalkeeper Alisson Pulls Off Assist Of The Season While Falling Over Against Norwich
| Last updated
The 29-year-old Brazilian, who now has as many Premier League assists as Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane and Thiago Alcantara this season, looked up in the 66th minute with the scoreline level.
He spotted Salah on his bike, flung his trusty right boot at the ball and found Liverpool's number 11, who showcased incredible composure to round Tim Krul before slotting home to make it 2-1.

Can we just talk about that pass from Alisson, though? Here's how social media reacted to that moment.

No one comes close.
It was a far from straightforward afternoon for Jurgen Klopp's side, who went behind in the 48th minute after Milot Rashica gave the away side a shock lead.
But the Reds soon found another gear after the hour mark.
Sadio Mane equalised with an acrobatic finish before the inevitable Mohamed Salah and newboy Luis Diaz found the back of the net to go six points behind leaders Manchester City in the league.

Alisson has been a huge reason behind Liverpool's success in recent years and last month, after they managed to beat Crystal Palace, manager Jurgen Klopp praised the Brazilian shot-stopper for his performances of late.
"I just said to him now, thank you for saving our backside again. He said 'that's my job'.
Klopp added: "Of course it is very helpful to have a world-class goalkeeper at the back!"
Thoughts on that Alisson assist? Will that go down as one of the assists of the season?
