Alisson Becker was immense tonight.
Best in the Premier League at what he does.

Alisson MOTM. Easily.

“Alisson made a mistake, but his saves were what kept us in the game, MOTM for me.”

Apart from that mad little moment before Alisson has been back to his very best tonight

Alisson and Phillips the standouts there. Can’t see us getting top four but at least they’ve kept the pressure on a bit. Up the pretty shit but still hanging on in there Reds.

Alisson made 6 saves tonight – the most he's ever made in a Premier League game.

Alisson has saved our ass for the last 3-4 games

Thiago’s first goal saw him hailed…
That is quite the time and match situation for Thiago to get his first Liverpool goal
— Melissa Reddy (@MelissaReddy_) May 8, 2021
Thiago finds the corner with a great finish. He'll be a fan-favourite at LFC once supporters can get in to see him. #LIVSOU

Further proof Thiago should have stayed on vs Newcastle. Not only because of that class goal, but his work rate and composure too.
What a class strike too, didn't even have to look at the goal

“Nice to see Thiago break his duck with a goal of such significance!”
– NorseDweller in the comments.
Worth the wait from Thiago, that. And so important to wrap up the points.
— Leanne Prescott (@_lfcleanne) May 8, 2021
Thiago I love you

And sights have been set back on the top four…
#LFC somehow still in the hunt for top four at the end of this testing season but, without wishing to be too negative, they are surely going to have to play better than this if they are to do it. Still missing and giving up way too many chances.

One of those rare occurrences: a Liverpool home win by two clear goals. Record at Anfield in Premier League matches in 2021 for goals scored reads: 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 2. Somehow they remain on the fringe of the top four fight.

All about the win today. Still think top four is too much of an ask but, still, there's some hope. Alisson's saves vital but also Phillips has grown into this game. Whatever happens in summer and who comes in, no doubt that he deserves to stay in PL.
