Atletico Madrid v Liverpool: Man Of The Match - Alisson Becker


Allison Becker returns to the starting lineup and shows exactly why he is so important in a man of the match display. 

What drama! What a game for the neutral! What a win (in the end). Breathtaking as it was, only one player stands out for man of the match. 

After a blistering start by Liverpool going 2-0 up. It seemed to be going all one way. Atletico Madrid then started to play.

Liverpool's defence were getting caught open quite often. Luckily for the reds, Atletico still had to beat one man and that man was Alisson Becker.  

Alisson found himself facing shot after shot, especially in the first half. A few times Atletico Madrid got one on ones very easily.

The Brazilian no.1 stood up to pretty much everything that came at him. Although he conceded two goals, he did everything else to keep Liverpool in the game.

Mohamed Salah continued his unreal goalscoring form with two goals but we don't even get a result in this game never mind win if it weren't for the Liverpool keeper. 

He showed tonight why he is one of the best keepers in the world, if not the best. He doesn't get the credit he deserves from everyone outside the Liverpool fanbase.

Plenty of heart in the mouth moments. Plenty of times we looked like losing. Yet we come away with such a brilliant victory thanks to outstanding goalkeeping. 

After tonight, the praise for Alisson Becker should be coming from everywhere and deservedly so.
