‘Brilliant quick-thinking’ of surprise Liverpool star praised as crucial to Mohamed Salah goal vs Fulham

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is earning a huge amount of praise for his role in the Mohamed Salah goal vs Fulham this afternoon.

The Brazil international joined the Reds from Roma this summer and has quickly shown why there was so much hype about his move to Anfield.

As well as some smart shot stopping and a good command of his area, Alisson has shown himself to be a very capable passer of the ball out from the back.

As this is an increasing trend in the modern game, Alisson seems the perfect fit for Liverpool right now and the way that they play under Jurgen Klopp. Still, it’s quite surreal to see a ‘keeper become such an important part of a team’s passing play and starting so many moves that seem to lead to goals.

The 26-year-old started the move that led to Salah’s goal today, showing quick thinking to pass the ball out after Fulham had a goal disallowed themselves.

This enabled Trent Alexander-Arnold to burst into space and play the ball through to Salah, with the Egyptian then making no mistake after bearing down on goal.

Twitter is full of praise from fans for Alisson’s role in this goal, as well as from Liverpool Echo writer James Pearce!
