Liverpool star hits out at Reds for conceding ‘stupid goals’ and addresses Joel Matip absence

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has hit out at his team for conceding ‘stupid’ goals as they go on a difficult run without keeping a clean sheet.

They have also had to cope without injured centre-back Joel Matip, who had been one of the team’s most in-form performers at the start of this season and the end of last.

Liverpool fans will no doubt hope they can tighten up at the back soon as they had started to become a far more solid side last season after previously having a reputation for leaking some needless goals.

Alisson also spoke about Matip’s absence, but sent a message of encouragement regarding backup defender Dejan Lovren…
