Alisson “the best goalkeeper in the world by a country mile” for Andy Robertson

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 12:45

Andy Robertson has highlighted Alisson‘s contribution to another win and clean sheet for Liverpool, beating Aston Villa 2-0, saying he is “the best goalkeeper in the world.”

The Reds’ last game before football’s suspension was marked by Alisson‘s absence, with Adrian struggling in the Champions League exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid.

But having recovered from his injury problems over a three-month break, the Brazilian has returned to top form between the sticks, keeping three clean sheets from four games since the restart.

It can almost go unnoticed at times how influential Alisson is, but Jurgen Klopp has been eager to praise his No. 1 for keeping Liverpool in games in recent weeks, and Robertson did similar after Sunday’s win over Villa.

“We never take Ali for granted and he’s the best goalkeeper in the world by a country mile,” the left-back told the club’s official website.

“Even when he’s not got a lot to do, he still stays alert when balls are in behind and he’s clearing the ball.

“Sometimes people who just come and watch maybe forget about that stuff and easily can take him for granted—but we definitely don’t.

“He’s a fantastic ‘keeper, he’s a fantastic person and he made a couple of big saves today.

“That’s what he’s there for and what he gets paid for I suppose, but when he does that, it gives us confidence.

“We have all the confidence in the world in him.”

Alisson could become the first goalkeeper to win back-to-back Golden Glove awards since Joe Hart in 2013 if he beats off competition from Nick Pope, Ederson and Kasper Schmeichel to record the most clean sheets in the Premier League.

The last Liverpool goalkeeper to win the award was Pepe Reina, who kept the most shutouts in three consecutive seasons from 2005/06 to 2007/08.

The Reds’ No. 1 is currently tied with Pope on 13, which is remarkable considering he has made just 24 appearances in the top flight this season, with the Burnley ‘keeper featuring 33 times.

His restricted outings means he is unable to beat last season’s record of 21 clean sheets, but there remain five more on offer including a home clash with the Clarets on July 11.

With the title already won, Liverpool can look to end the season in the best possible fashion, and for Alisson, that would come with winning the Golven Glove once more.

Injury update: Herbie Kane fitness latest

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 12:25

Herbie Kane is set to miss the remainder of the season due to a hamstring injury.

Having earlier opened the scoring for Hull City, the 21-year-old midfielder was forced off during his loan club's 2-1 win over Middlesbrough last Thursday.

With just five league games left to play in the Championship in 2019-20, Hull City boss Grant McCann said: "Looking at the scan, it's not a nice one for him. We're gutted for Herbie because he's had no luck since coming here.

"He picked up the injury in training when no-one was near him before lockdown and now he's pulled a hamstring.

"We'd love to have him back with us next season. He's everything that we need and everything that I like in a player - with his energy and bravery.

"He can score goals and he's calm on the ball as well. We'd love to keep him here next year.”

Klopp a fan of Thiago but won't confirm Liverpool interest in Bayern Munich star

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 11:26

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Thiago Alcantara “is a really good player” but refused to confirm whether the Reds are interested in signing the Bayern Munich midfielder.

Speculation has gathered pace this week suggesting the Spain international was on the verge of leaving Bayern for the newly-crowned Premier League champions.

The 29-year-old is about to enter the final year of his contract in Bavaria and talks over a new deal have seemingly reached an impasse, meaning Bayern may consider a cut-price sale this summer rather than risk the player leaving on a free transfer next year.

Thiago Alcantara latest: Liverpool eyeing a £32m deal

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 09:48

Thiago Alcantara has always been proud of being a mix of football cultures – the free-spirited flamboyance inherited from his father the Brazil international Mazinho, and the adhesion to order, structure and positional discipline learned at Barcelona and ingrained at Bayern under Pep Guardiola.

It’s no surprise that he wants his club career to reflect the joy of different styles too – he’s done LaLiga and the Bundesliga, aged 29, he is now desperate to experience the Premier League.

Liverpool are interested. How could they not be? The fact that he has one year left on his contract, combined with the deflation of the market caused by the coronavirus pandemic, will bring his price down.

Andy Robertson on his fitness, Villa victory and awesome Alisson

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 09:40

Andy Robertson feels fit and ready to go again as Liverpool’s busy schedule continues at Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday.

The left-back sustained a knock in the latter stages of Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at Anfield but, speaking immediately after the match, stated that he will be available for the Premier League champions’ trip to the Amex Stadium.

“All good, yeah,” Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com, when asked about his fitness for the game against Graham Potter’s team.

“I’ve just got a bit of a dead calf just in the challenge with Grealish with about 20 minutes to go, just a tangle of legs and I got a dead calf. We’ll be good to go, it’s a hectic period [and] we need to keep as fresh as we can. 

“Obviously after 13 weeks off we’ve now got three weeks of a lot of games, so that’s what the squad is for. We made four subs today and every single one of them had a massive impact and we made three changes to the starting line-up, so we’ll wait and see what the manager does on Wednesday. 

“I’ll be good to go and hopefully he picks me and hopefully we can have another positive performance.”

Robertson also discussed the satisfaction of bouncing back following last week’s defeat to Manchester City, the Reds’ will to win and Alisson Becker, who made several fine saves versus Villa to keep another clean sheet.

Read on for more from our interview with the Scotland captain…

Andy, it must feel good to get the three points after the frustration of the visit to the Etihad Stadium?

Look, Thursday was a frustrating performance. We weren’t happy with certain areas of our game. It was a strange one. I think over the last five or six games we’ve played against Manchester City that might have been the most chances we created against them, and in the first 25 minutes we could easily have went one or 2-0 up. Obviously when you don’t take your chances we are playing against a team that has got nothing really to lose and they went out and took their chances, which we didn’t. In certain areas we could have done a lot better, of course we could have, but it was important not to overreact. We are champions in our own right, and that game made us 20 points clear of that team so that shows you how well we have done this season.

We can all have off days and yeah, we didn’t like it, but we managed to bounce back today. It might not have been the best performance in the first half but you are playing against a team that is fighting for their lives and relegation and I know how that feels. When you do that you need to match their fight and you need to match their endeavour and we did that, and it took a bit of time for any sort of quality to shine through in that game. But once it did, then we were the ones doing it and we managed to capitalise on that. [We] took our chances and 2-0, I think, was a fair result.

A tough game from a team that deserve to be higher up! Buzzing for @curtisjr_10 for getting his first… https://t.co/JZimlUfj1u

— andrewrobertso5 (Andy Robertson) 5th Jul 18:36

This Liverpool team gets a lot of praise for its style of play, but you’ve also got that grit and determination to find a way to win when a game perhaps isn’t flowing as you would like, too...

That’s why we are champions… when sometimes times are tough we dig even deeper and some teams might have been thinking, ‘OK, it’s not our day’ in the first half. I didn’t think we played badly but they put up a good defensive block, they had a couple of chances themselves and some teams crumble under that - not us. We managed to shine, we managed to hold our nerve and then Naby’s pass for Sadio was a fantastic pass and we take the goal. Once we went 1-0 up we really started to put our quality onto the game and that’s why we limited their chances and we had a couple more ourselves. Luckily Curt managed to seal the three points for us.

Finally, the manager said after the Merseyside derby a few weeks ago that we shouldn’t take Alisson for granted. He made some fantastic saves again to preserve your 15th Premier League clean sheet of the season…

We never take Ali for granted and he’s the best goalkeeper in the world by a country mile. Even when he’s not got a lot to do, he still stays alert when balls are in behind and he’s clearing the ball. Sometimes people who just come and watch maybe forget about that stuff and easily can take him for granted - but we definitely don’t. He’s a fantastic ‘keeper, he’s a fantastic person and he made a couple of big saves today. That’s what he’s there for and what he gets paid for I suppose, but when he does that, it gives us confidence we have all the confidence in the world in him.
