Jamie Carragher raves about new Liverpool FC signing
Jamie Carragher admits Alisson Becker has already had a big impact at Liverpool FC this season
Jamie Carragher has admitted that Alisson Becker has already had a big impact at Liverpool FC after the Brazilian goalkeeper’s move to Anfield from Roma this summer.
The Brazilian goalkeeper has been settling into life at the Merseyside outfit after having joined the Reds from the Italian side during the off-season.
Liverpool FC moved quickly to bring in a new shot-stopper after Loris Karius’ Champions League final nightmare during the 3-1 loss to Real Madrid back in May.
Alisson has helped the Merseyside outfit to keep two clean sheets in their opening two Premier League games of the new season, with the Reds having beaten Crystal Palace 2-0 on Monday night.
The shot-stopper will be hoping to help Liverpool FC mount a serious Premier League title challenge this season as they look to establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the trophy.
And Liverpool FC legend Carragher feels that Alisson has already had a big impact since his move to the Merseyside outfit earlier this summer.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Carragher said: “If Liverpool didn’t change the goalkeeper, no one would be predicting a title challenge or second [place].
“He looks brilliant on the ball. He made a couple of great saves. He gives people belief.”
Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday evening when they host Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield.
