What a save Lonergan

Brilliant save by Andy Lonergan. Wijnaldum lost the ball after good defending by Van Dijk. Nolito slides it into De Jong but is met by a great save. Acampos powers a shot wide of the goal. 0-0

Some save that from Lonergan

As Alisson has been granted an extended break following his Copa America journey with Brazil, the Reds brought in Lonergan to boost their goalkeeping ranks during preseason.
If the ace continues to impress, Liverpool could sign him as a third-choice keeper.
