Liverpool fans are used to seeing Alisson Becker shine in our goal, but his performance against Southampton was spectacular even by his standards and prompted one of his team-mates to compliment his performance and his new look.
Speaking to the club after the game, Harvey Elliott said: “I think now he’s going to have to shave off his beard every game! So many times he’s kept us in the game and it’s nothing new for Alisson, to be honest. He is an incredible goalkeeper, as well as an incredible human being, for which we are all very proud of him.”
The new beardless Brazilian was making headlines before the match due to his new look, but it was his display on the pitch that drew more attention afterwards.

A series of point-blank saves against the Saints meant he was serenaded by Kop after the win and all our supporters will wish him well when he departs for Qatar for the World Cup.
Our number 1 has shown the importance of having a good goalkeeper by your side and his saves have helped ensure we can regain confidence and form ahead of the break in domestic football, something we hope will come in handy in the second part of the campaign . .
Jurgen Klopp will selfishly hope that the 30-year-old will return from the tournament soon, but we all hope that he can secure a winner’s medal that he amply deserves for his level of performance since his arrival at Anfield.
