Liverpool star does something not done in the Premier League since 2010

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson became the first Reds goalkeeper to pick up an assist in a Premier League game since all the way back in 2010.

The Brazil international’s superb ball found Mohamed Salah on the break late on against Manchester United to wrap up a 2-0 victory at Anfield, as the Merseyside giants look a sure bet to win the title this season and so the smart money is on them with some help from to maximise potential returns.

Alisson has long been known for being a fine player on the ball, and he showed that this weekend with a beautifully played pass over the top for Salah to run on to and kill the game against Man Utd.

In a way, it’s surprising it’s taken Alisson this long to pick up an assist in the Premier League as we’re now into his second season with LFC.

See the stat below from Opta Joe, who tweet that this was the first assist by a Liverpool ‘keeper since ex-Red Pepe Reina got one for Fernando Torres in a game against Sunderland in March 2010…

This is undoubtedly a special achievement and we’re sure the former Roma shot-stopper will be thrilled with his contribution, as was evidenced by his celebration with Salah after the goal.

Well played, Alisson!
