Alisson lost his father in tragic circumstances in midweek, and was subsequently missing as the Reds travelled to Bramall Lane on Sunday night.
He struck the first and played a big part in the second, which was ultimately deemed a Kean Bryan own goal, with the Reds holding on for their first Premier League win in five.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, the 20-year-old made the heartwarming gesture of dedicating his goal to Alisson and his family.
“It’s been a difficult time for myself and the rest of the team, but I’m happy that I got on the scoresheet,” Jones said.
“I’d like to take this time to say that it’s for Ali’s dad, actually. So may he rest in peace and if Ali sees this, this is for you bro.

“He’s a strong lad, a big part of the team of course. He’s not there today, but we miss him for sure and I’d like to take this time to dedicate my goal to him, his dad and the rest of his family.”
The goal was Jones’ first in the Premier League this season, and his seventh in 42 games for the first team, having also laid on five assists during that spell.
“I’ve always said I’m a player who wants to assist, score goals, so I think the time is right now,” he added.
“All in all it was a good team performance. I was happy we came away with the three points, and we go again.”
