In Alisson Klopp trusts
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp hailed his “world class” goalkeeper Alisson after the Brazilian produced a superb late save in the 0-0 draw at Everton on Sunday.
With 10 minutes left, Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s clever flick from a low Gylfi Sigurdsson cross was pushed out by Alisson and Tom Davies’ follow-up shot hit the post.
“That’s what a world-class goalkeeper is, nothing to do for 90 minutes pretty much and then in one second you have to be there and he was there,” Klopp told reporters. “It obviously saved us a point — it wasn’t the first one... Outstanding. A difficult goalkeeper game.”
Klopp was pleased with the way his team approached the match, in terms of their fitness and defensive solidity but was left frustrated by his forward players.
“We didn’t have enough chances. Most of the time we were dominant but they had the biggest chance,” said Klopp. “I liked a lot of things about our game but we didn’t have those moments in attack, we didn’t have the rhythm.”
Everton coach Carlo Ancelotti said his team had stuck to their game plan well.
