Alisson has revealed the dynamics behind Liverpool’s title winning defence, claiming he doesn’t need to shout at those directly in front of him.

The Brazilian has emerged as one of the best keepers in Europe since his big-money move from Roma in 2018.

In his first two seasons in the Liverpool goal, the Reds have tasted success in the Champions League, as well as ending the 30 year wait for a Premier League title.

After conceding three times in the season opener against Leeds United, they bounced back to earn a clean sheet vs Chelsea.


And in an interview with Mail on Sunday, Alisson has spoken about the relationship with his defence, including Virgil van Dijk.

Asked why he doesn’t shout at players on the pitch, he replied: “It’s my way. I don’t like to shout at anybody and I don’t like it that anybody should shout at me. When you make a mistake, you know that you make a mistake.

“We are professionals and we work every day on that. I have made many mistakes already in my life. Sometimes they led to a goal, sometimes they didn’t.

He added: “I know what I need to improve and what I need to do differently. So I don’t need to tell Virgil or Joe Gomez or Robbo [Andy Robertson] what they need to do differently.


“We speak to each other about what makes us all more comfortable with our movements but I don’t believe that when you concede or make a mistake that you should be pointing the finger at someone. I believe in a different way. You speak in a better way and find a solution.

“We don’t need to say that that game against Leeds was a wake-up call. On match day, if things don’t happen how we want them to happen, we have to analyse that. We are always looking for what we can improve and that game brought us a lot of those things and we brought that to the next game against Chelsea and we were successful and we kept a clean sheet.”

Alisson’s penalty save at Stamford Bridge ensured Liverpool got their title defence off to the perfect start with two wins out of two. And the keeper is confident his team will step up to the challenge and retain their Premier League crown.

“We know the level of the Premier League is getting higher,” he explained. “Clubs are investing a lot of money in players, they are getting better organised on the pitch.

“We have to believe in ourselves and we know our quality and our goals but it depends how much we put on the pitch and in the game.

“Last season, we didn’t think about winning the title. We put 100 per cent of our focus on the next game and the next challenge. This year, we will do that the same.”
