There was no way that Alisson would escape the shocking errors that cost Liverpool against Manchester City today, and Sky Sports made sure of that with a savage bit of entertainment.
Liverpool pulled the encounter back to 1-1 in the 63rd minute but ended up losing 4-1 after a pair of disastrous mistakes from Alisson Becker gifted City the clear-cut chance of two goals.
Alisson was punished for a rushed clearance in the 72nd minute of the tie, when Ilkay Gundogan made up for an earlier miss, the Brazilian then produced a similar moment to forget just three minutes later.
When Liverpool’s second-half implosion and embarrassment finally came to and end and the cameras were directed back to the Sky Sports studio, there was a brutal review awaiting Alisson.
Presenter Dave Jones was seemingly passed on a gem from one of the scriptwriting crew as he reviewed the match as ‘Alisson Blunderland’ before the coverage headed off for an ad break.
? Hats off to @SkySports staff…

‘Alisson Blunderland’ is a reference to the massively successful ‘Alice in Wonderland’ novel, here’s hoping that one of those books isn’t lying about at the Becker family home tonight.
I for one was of the firm belief that a world-class player like Alisson would be the last I’d ever expect to let down the Reds, especially in such a big game, anything can happen in football.
