Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker shortlisted for the Premier League save of the month award for September
The 29-year-old was the hero for his side after his amazing performance between the sticks stopped Everton from scoring, when the two sides met earlier this month.
Dwight McNeil’s shot took a deflection and looked to be looping over the goalkeeper, but Alisson’s stretching hand tipped it over the bar. This save has earned the Brazilian a nomination for the award in a game that finished goalless at full time.
Alisson joined the Merseyside club in 2018 from Italian side AS Roma for a then-world-record fee of £65 million for a goalkeeper. The move came not long after Loris Karius’ horror show in the 2018 UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid.
There is no doubt that the player was worth every penny. The Brazilian shot-stopper quickly established himself in the team and was an instant hit among the fans.
Four years at the club and the keeper has won everything there is to win. He has been shortlisted among other keepers which include Jordan Pickford, Hugo Lloris, Vicente Guaita and Danny Ward.
The 29-year-old is currently with the Brazil national team for their friendlies against Ghana and Tunisia this month. Alisson faces tough competition from rival Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson for the number one spot in the national team.

Alisson has had a tough start this season, but it is not entirely his fault as the defenders in front of him have been off form as well. The 29-year-old is likely to play in the friendlies and will also be a shoo-in to travel to Qatar for the World Cup in November with his national team.
