Liverpool suffered another defeat in the Premier League, as Leicester beat them with the score of 3-1 on Saturday.
After the game the Foxes’ James Maddison commented on the unfortunate form of Alisson, as the Brazilian goalkepper landed a costly mistake in consecutive games.
In the 80th minute of the clash, Youri Tielemans launched a dangerous long ball forward, bound for Harvey Barnes, but one that was challenged by both Alisson and debutant Ozan Kabak.
The Reds’ recent loan signing didn’t appear to receive any signal from Alisson that the stopper was rushing out, which led to the pair colliding. The clash left Jamie Vardy to collect the loose ball, skip forward and tap it into the back of the net.
After the game, Maddison said:
“I didn’t know what was going on, Anthony Taylor looked lost as well!
“That’s what Jamie Vardy does, he sniffs out opportunities.
“Mix-up between the centre-half and the goalkeeper. It’s just one of those things. I don’t think you can look too much into it.”
“Alisson is obviously having a bit of a tough time at the minute – with the last game (vs City) – but he is a top goalkeeper and I’m sure he will be back. I’m just glad we could pounce on that mistake.”
