Alisson Becker has vowed to improve after his glaring error during Liverpool FC’s 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

The shot-stopper has been settling into life well at Anfield since his big-money move from AS Roma in the summer transfer window.

He had kept three clean sheets in the build-up to Saturday’s game, but he hesitated after receiving Virgil van Dijk’s mis-directed back-pass, and that allowed Kelechi Iheanacho to snatch possession and square for Rachid Ghezzal to score.

Liverpool FC managed to cling on and claim all three points to notch up their fourth straight win in the Premier League and maintain their place at the top of the table.

Speaking after the game, Alisson insisted that he will focus on improving his game after his mistake for the first goal Liverpool FC have conceded in the top flight this season.

Speaking to ESPN Brasil, Alisson said: “I am angry that I made a mistake that put the team in a difficult situation.

“When one person makes a mistake, it affects everyone and everyone fought back together. We have to improve still but the result is what matters at the moment.

“It was bad judgement, I made a mistake reading the play. I didn’t get a very good pass [and] we talked about that in the dressing room and I spoke to Virgil. It wasn’t a good pass but I could have just kicked it long.

“I wanted to keep playing and keep the possession [and] now everyone is going to analyse that. I’m not going to be stupid and make the same mistake. We have to learn from our mistakes.

“It is part of my game [playing out from the back with his feet] but I am not going to be arrogant to stand here and say I’m going to keep doing it. We have to learn from our mistakes.”

Liverpool FC will be looking to challenge for the Premier League title this season after having finished fourth and without a trophy last term.

The Reds will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley later this month.
