Fans Aghast As Alisson Hands Manchester City Victory Over Liverpool
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has had a nightmare second half against Manchester City, passing it directly to their forwards not once but twice to give City an unassailable lead.
The game was finely poised at 1-1 thanks to Mohamed Salah's penalty after Ilkay Gundogan's opener, when Alisson had a five minutes that he will hope he never has to watch back.
First, he decided to pass it directly to Phil Foden - who promptly dribbled forward and passed it to Gundogan to double his and City's tally.

Just minutes later the Brazilian repeated the trick, passing it straight to Bernardo Silva this time - who crossed it for Raheem Sterling to head home.

That wasn't the end of it though, with the goalkeeper then allowing Foden to smash one past him and make it 4-1 to Pep Guardiola's side before the end. It could be argued that this was also an error from the stopper, but it's unlikely to be analysed after the earlier howlers.
Fans were quick to jump on Alisson's errors, especially as it means Liverpool are now ten points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City - who also have a game in hand on the Merseyside club.

Things I don't understand:
1. Why no one is in a good position to receive the ball
2. Why Alisson decides to play it one touch
3. Why no one notices Bernardo Silva is standing right there. pic.twitter.com/rdqfTnoe1l
