Jurgen Klopp said the club had “the opportunity to sign one of the world’s best goalkeepers” – and statistically that’s certainly true, with Alisson matching up well against the likes of David de Gea, Hugo Lloris and Thibaut Courtiois.
Very capable with his feet, the 25-year-old Brazilian is an excellent good shot stopper and a commanding presence at 6’4″.
The above video showcases all his best attributes, including some superb double-saves and plenty of pro-active goalkeeping.
It also shows a glimpse of his distribution; check the ball at 4 mins and imagine Mo Salah and Sadio Mane on the end of those this season.
