Alisson ‘best in history’ and Nunez’s “explosion” – Liverpool fans laud key duo

Liverpool won 3-1 at home to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday, with Alisson and Darwin Nunez lavished with praise by supporters.

The Reds faced their last game before the World Cup, with only victory acceptable in the top-four battle.

Roberto Firmino gave Jurgen Klopp‘s side an ideal start, heading home, but Che Adams swiftly equalised after some poor defending.

It was then the Darwin Nunez show, with the Uruguayan twice finishing expertly from close range before half-time, as his impressive form continues.

Alisson made some vital stops in the second half, as Liverpool’s performance dipped, but they ended up seeing out the game to make it four wins on the bounce for the first time this season.

Liverpool won, but they had the extraordinary Alisson to thank, following some superb saves…

“How many 1 on 1 has Ali saves today? Top class”
