In doing so, he became the first No1 to score in the Prem, but it wasn't enough to rescue his side...
    ‘Snake Eyes’ Unveils Action-Packed First Trailer America tastes new freedoms but confronts new dilemmas as it takes off the mask Match statistics: West Brom 1-2 Liverpool Football, eh? Bloody hell! Even after all these years, this sport still finds a way to surprise you, to thrill you, to take the breath away. Step forward, Alisson Becker. Liverpool’s season was fizzling out. The clock had ticked past 90 minutes, past the four that had been added on. The Reds were drawing, desperate, watching their Champions League hopes melt away in the west Midlands rain.  And then their goalkeeper decided to take matters into his own hands. Or onto his own head, to be more specific.   The Brazil international has been up for corners before. A few times this season, in fact. But here, when Jurgen Klopp needed him most, there he was, rising to meet Trent Alexander-Arnold’s left-wing corner with the most perfect of headers. Far corner, 2-1 Liverpool.

    JURGEN KLOPP compared Liverpool hero Alisson Becker to Olivier Giroud after the keeper's 'world-class' headed winner against West Brom.

In doing so, the Brazilian, 28, became just the sixth keeper to score in the Premier League, the first to score a winner, and the first to score with his head. And a bewildered Klopp claimed the effort was of the highest calibre - and not just for a goalkeeper.

    Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson made the 80-meter journey into West Bromwich Albion's penalty area more in hope than any expectation of scoring the goal that would keep alive his team's chances of reaching the Champions League.

Instead, Jurgen Klopp’s side kept a clean sheet at home for the first time since January and scored twice there in a league game again after a gap of nearly five months. On that occasion, a late Roberto Firmino header gave them a win over Tottenham that kept them top of the Premier League. Back then a successful title defence looked possible. Right now, Liverpool are still officially champions of England. But although that hard-worn crown will return to Manchester City in the coming days, if not hours, the battle for a...

    LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool’s woeful home form is developing into a full-blown crisis after Chelsea’s 1-0 victory on Thursday inflicted a fifth straight league loss at Anfield on the Premier League champions — the worst run in the club’s 128-year history. With Liverpool’s title defense already over, this was billed as a battle for a Champions League place and Mason Mount’s 42nd-minute goal lifted Chelsea back into the top four. Chelsea’s previous win at Anfield, in 2014, effectively ended the title hopes of Brendan Rodgers’ side. This one was a blow to Liverpool’s chances of a top-four finish under Jurgen Klopp. Klopp’s side is four points adrift of Chelsea and with Everton and West Ham also ahead. Liverpool has now gone more than 10 hours without a goal from open play at Anfield. The hosts failed to register an effort on target until the 85th minute and Georginio Wijnaldum’s weak header was never going to beat Edouard Mendy. They have taken one point from the last 21 on offer at home since Christmas and scored just two goals, one...
    MASON MOUNT continued his remarkable form on the road with his fifth Premier League away goal of the season - out of five. The Chelsea midfielder, 22, put his side in front three minutes before half-time in tonight's trip to champions Liverpool. 3Mason Mount curled in Chelsea's opener at Anfield three minutes before half-timeCredit: AP:Associated Press Cesar Azpilicueta cushioned a header into N'Golo Kante at the base of the Chelsea midfield. And the Frenchman immediately got his head up and sprayed a long pass over the top of the Reds defence for Mount to race on to. Fabinho came across as Trent Alexander-Arnold tried to get back, but the man cut inside from the left channel across the edge of the area. And Mount made no mistake with the finish from 18 yards, curling a fine effort low into the far corner while giving Alisson no chance. Incredibly, it still means 100 per cent of his goals in the league this term have come on Chelsea's travels - adding to his finishes at West Brom, Fulham, Sheffield United and...

    Jurgen Klopp says that Alisson will sleep very well on the way home to Liverpool after maintaining a clean sheet in the Reds’ 2-0 win over RB Leipzig. The Brazilian goalkeeper has come under fire in recent weeks after a series of blunders against Manchester City and Leicester.

But he had big moments in the Leicester game, eh? But of course, a clean sheet helps, as you can imagine,” Klopp said after the game.  “Ali will sleep really well in the plane on the way home!

Under extreme conditions - the injury crisis which has hit Liverpool’s centre backs and prevented them from fielding a consistent defence - one aspect of Alisson’s game has collapsed. He is making basic mistakes in his role as an outfield player - in his passing out from the back and his decisions on when to come out of his goal. This perhaps indicates the value of a saying popularised by former England coach Terry Venables; under pressure, the last thing you learn can be the first thing you forget. It is not normal for goalies in Brazil to play...

They go one goal up and last season you'd say game over. If you go away from the TV, you'll probably come back and it's three. "But now you're questioning it. You're not confident in them now. There isn't that authority anymore. Last season people were saying 'this is one of the greatest teams to play in the Premier League'.

    LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp has fumed at the VAR decision to allow Leicester's equaliser to stand. The Reds had led former boss Brendan Rodgers' Foxes side at the time, courtesy of a wonderful move finished off by Mo Salah. 4Jurgen Klopp was unhappy with refereeing decisionsCredit: AFP 4VAR adjudged Daniel Amartey to be onsideCredit: BT Sport But James Maddison's controversial 78th minute free-kick sparked a run of three goals in seven minutes that buried Liverpool, and their faint title hopes. With Thiago Alcantara's foul on Harvey Barnes having initially been given as a penalty, the VAR Stuart Attwell deemed the incident as occurring outside the box, downgrading Leicester's spot kick to a free-kick. But Liverpool's respite was brief, as Maddison, 24, curled his effort beyond Alisson in the Reds' net. Initially disallowed for offside against Daniel Amartey, who interfered with play, the call was subsequently overturned after the Ghanaian was in fact deemed to be onside. But Klopp, 53, believes that the VAR made a mess of the call. He told talkSPORT: "We conceded a really strange goal – I’ve...
    Leicester 3-1 Liverpool: Match statistics It never rains but it pours, for Liverpool. And for Alisson Becker. If anything could sum up the Reds’ season then here it was, all wrapped in one horrific, seven-minute bundle. All of a sudden, the world’s best goalkeeper looks anything but. All of a sudden, he has started making mistakes. Bad ones. Costly ones.  After his two howlers against Manchester City last weekend came another at the King Power Stadium, as Leicester struck a crucial blow in the battle for a top-four place with a 3-1 victory that was as farcical as it could be damaging, for Jurgen Klopp’s champions. Liverpool looked on course for three vital points, 1-0 up with just 12 minutes remaining. Mo Salah’s wonderful finish, from a sublime Roberto Firmino assist, had given them a deserved advantage, reward for an enterprising and surprisingly-confident performance away from home. They’d even had a bit of fortune, too, with Jamie Vardy hitting the crossbar when clean through and VAR overturning a penalty awarded for a foul on Harvey Barnes by Thiago Alcantara. Things were looking up. And...
    Jurgen Klopp was left cursing another controversial VAR ruling after seeing his Liverpool side suffer a 3-1 defeat at Leicester , with the Reds boss of the opinion that a “clear offside” call went against the Reds. In what is becoming a testing run for the Premier League champions, they hit a new low at the King Power Stadium. Mohamed Salah fired them in front, but a late flurry of goals from the Foxes was sparked by a James Maddison free-kick that was allowed to stand despite a flag initially being raised for offside. What has been said? “We conceded a goal, a really tough one to take, it was a turning point in the game on VAR,” Klopp told BT Sport afterwards. “I have seen it and when they stop the situation it looks a clear offside – that’s it. “The second goal is a misunderstanding, we said they need to get used to each other and they were fine for 75 minutes, it was a really good game. “On the pitch we were the clear dominant side....

    Liverpool unfolded the carpet and City walked through Anfield with the face of a champion. Whether I want to recognize it or not Guardiola, his team has regained an impassable appearance and stormed the champion’s court for the first time since 2003. This time with the invaluable help of Alisson, who resigned from his duties after a second half for oblivion in which he gave two goals to his rival. With morale sapped, Foden sentenced the cadre of Klopp and closed the result of a match that marks a before and after (1-4). Liverpool’s aura has run out, and playing at Anfield doesn’t serve as a shield either. It is no longer an argument in your favor. With no people in the stands, the team feels abandoned and has three consecutive defeats: Burnley, Brighton and City. The latter is the one that sentences his hopes of retaining the crown. Playing without their best defenders has been an insurmountable slab for Klopp, which fits the worst defeat against a Guardiola who has taken five years to win at Anfield. [+]Watch...
    By ROB HARRIS, AP Global Soccer Writer LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — The fireworks being set off behind the Kop provided a flashback to last season’s Premier League trophy celebrations. But little on the Anfield pitch suggested these were the champions in action. Jürgen Klopp's side appears a faded force preparing to relinquish the title, highly possibly to Manchester City after being beaten 4-1 by the leaders on Sunday. After going 68 games unbeaten on home soil, Liverpool has now lost three in a row for the first time in 58 years. And it's City with a five-point lead. Not over Liverpool but Manchester United — and with a game in hand.

    ROY KEANE was left stunned after Jurgen Klopp suggested Alisson could have had 'cold feet' that led to his blunders. The usually-reliable keeper was at fault for two goals as Liverpool were thumped 4-1 at home to Manchester City. 3Jurgen Klopp consoled his goalkeeper Alisson after his two blunders against Manchester CityCredit: Kevin Quigley-The Daily Mail ????

In the post-match interview, Reds' boss Klopp attempted to explain his keeper's errors. He said: "We did not give him a lot of options, especially the first one. "Second yeah, he just mis-hit the ball, maybe he had cold feet, it sounds funny but don't know the situation. "He has saved our lives many times, no doubt about that, tonight he made mistakes."

    GARY NEVILLE has mocked Jamie Carragher after the Liverpool legend squirmed live on air when Alisson made a huge blunder in their defeat to Manchester City. The Reds keeper suffered a calamitous mix-up with defender Fabinho before then gifting the ball to City which led to Gundogan netting his and City's second goal. 2Alisson gifted Gundogan a second goal as Man City ran away with the three points at AnfieldCredit: Times Newspapers Ltd Gary Nevilles New Ringtone pic.twitter.com/sRjJ4y6sWa— My Greatest 11 (@MyGreatest11) February 7, 2021 And Neville reveled in Carragher's dismay as he instantly called him out for his reaction. Speaking about the hilarious moan by his colleague, Neville said: "You may have heard Carragher yelp, and he's on his knees next to me here! "That noise will be my ringtone for the next week. Can you do it again?" Alisson then went on to make another horrendous blunder just three minutes later.

    LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Manchester City dismantled Liverpool, aided by Alisson Becker’s uncharacteristic goalkeeping blunders, to win 4-1 on Sunday and inflict the Premier League champions’ third successive loss at the former fortress of Anfield. A first victory for City at Liverpool since 2003 — sparked by Ilkay Gundogan’s double — nudges Pep Guardiola’s side closer to regaining the trophy. While City pushed five points clear of Manchester United at the top of the standings, Liverpool slipped 10 points behind the leaders in a faltering title defense. Not since 1963 has Liverpool lost a hat trick of home league games. And this is a stadium where it had been unbeaten in 68 games until Burnley won last month and Brighton followed up with another victory on Wednesday. Gundogan sent a first-half penalty into the Kop before netting four minutes after the break after the first of Alisson’s mistakes. Mohamed Salah leveled from the spot before Gundogan netted again. Raheem Sterling headed in the third and Phil Foden powered in an angled drive. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright...
    ALISSON had his worst game in a Liverpool shirt to hand Manchester City an easy three points at Anfield. The Brazilian keeper, usually so reliable between the sticks, was at fault for two if not three of the goals as City ran away with it. 2Alisson practically handed the Premier League title to Manchester CityCredit: AFP 2Phil Foden is rightly mobbed after firing Liverpool 4-1 up and home and dryCredit: Reuters The defeat means Liverpool's ambitions to retain their Premier League title already look done and dusted. But Manchester City are now in pole position to take back the trophy they meekly gave up last season. Ilkay Gundogan scored twice with Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden adding the gloss to the scoreline. Alisson's dreadful passing out led to one of Gundogan's goals and Sterling's. And such is the high bar he has set, many will say his positioning should have been better for Foden's smart finish. A Mo Salah penalty offered Liverpool some hope - but that was soon extinguished.
