(Video) Alisson was an unsung hero for Liverpool in 1-1 draw against Chelsea



Alisson Liverpool

Liverpool and Chelsea played out an incredible 1-1 draw as we got the point, thanks to a brilliant strike from Daniel Sturridge.

The Reds had their chances to score more goals with Xherdan Shaqiri missing a great chance in the second half.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane tried their best but there is another star who deserves a lot of credit for the draw.

Alisson might have been beaten by Eden Hazard but the Brazilian was excellent throughout the game.

The keeper’s positioning was spot-on a couple of times, as he rushed off the line to either collect the ball or clear it out.

The Brazilian kept us in the game with a string of quality saves and was a solid option to play the ball back to.

Alisson saved a great shot from Willian in the first half and did the same against Hazard in the second when Chelsea took a quick free-kick.

The Brazilian’s distribution was great as he proved to be a decent outlet for our attackers. The 25-year-old was dominant in the air and even saved Georginio Wijnaldum’s blushes when he dealt with a poor back-pass from the Dutchman.

Alisson hasn’t been tested a lot during his time at Liverpool but this proved that we do have one of the best in the world.

The 25-year-old was commanding during set-pieces too. There hasn’t been a lot to cheer regarding goalkeepers at Anfield in recent years but Alisson is truly fantastic between the sticks and we should see better performances in the coming months.

“It’s gone great”, “Another one” – Some Liverpool fans curse luck with star player picking up injury



Sadio Mane

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has sustained a broken thumb, according to reports (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The star was with the national side when the injury occurred during training, and the Liverpool Echo claims Mane would be assessed by the club once he returns to Melwood.

This is another injury that Jurgen Klopp has to deal with from the international break. Virgil van Dijk is still suffering from a rib problem while Mohamed Salah picked up a minor problem for Egypt.

The duo are expected to continue their treatment at Anfield, as per the report.

The 26-year-old Mane has four goals to his name this season, and it will be interesting to see if he plays against Huddersfield at the weekend. Liverpool are tied at the top of the table with Chelsea and Manchester City on 20 points.

Some Liverpool fans were cursing the international break for the number of injuries we picked up while a few believed this was good as Mane needed a rest.

Liverpool interested in signing 27-year-old superstar from Napoli



Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are interested in signing Napoli superstar Lorenzo Insigne, according to Rai Sport (h/t Metro).

The Italian scored a late winner for the Serie A club in our Champions League loss a couple of weeks ago. The report adds that Chelsea are keeping an eye on the 27-year-old too and would rival the Reds for any bid on the Italian.

The attacker is known to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their time at Napoli. The report adds that any team looking to sign Insigne up would have to stump a huge fee since the player has four years left on his current deal.

The attacker has seven goals and an assist in all competitions for the Serie A side, so far, and helped them to second place in the league last season.

The report adds that Klopp wants more firepower for the Reds and Insigne could be the perfect fit at Anfield.

Liverpool have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as quality wingers and added Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer. However, signing Insigne could make our attack one of the best in the world.
