It might not have changed the result, but conceding a goal in the final minutes of the match would surely have been disheartening for a Liverpool defence that prides itself in keeping clean sheets.
The likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Alisson were reunited again as the Reds romped to a 3-0 win against Norwich City at Carrow Road.
Goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah got Jurgen Klopp’s side off to a great start in their quest to clinch the 21/22 season Premier League trophy.
Though the home side could have bagged a goal for themselves late in the game had it not been for the heroics of Alisson at goal.
Norwich were denied an opportunity to score their first goal of the season as the game ticked towards its conclusion.
Alisson produced a fine sprawling stop at the feet of Gibson inside the six-yard box and then palmed away a looping ball just moments later.

Still in shock Alisson managed to pull that off.— Anfield Edition (@AnfieldEdition) August 14, 2021
A joke of a double save.
He only made about 18 saves in three seconds, no biggy— Caoimhe O'Neill (@CaoimheSport) August 14, 2021

Still can’t believe Alisson Becker at the end there.— The Redmen TV (@TheRedmenTV) August 14, 2021
Hardly had a thing to do and then basically told Norwich not to bother. pic.twitter.com/CHaOF5SLiw

Alisson will be turning water into wine for his next trick.— CHANT LFC (@ChantLFC) August 14, 2021
A long term solution for Liverpool
Alisson is the exact playstyle of goalkeeper that could play well in to his 30’s— Carson (@WC_LFC_Torres) August 14, 2021
Not overly reliant on athleticism, but rather quick reflexes and intelligent positioning
Worth every penny
Alisson once again justifying fxcking up the market for top goalkeepers— R8 🚜🌾 (@Nabyllionaire) August 14, 2021
Who is Ederson in this game?
That's honestly some of the best goalkeeping I can remember.— Laurie (@LFCLaurie) August 14, 2021
Alisson is the best in the league and it's not even close.
Neuer and Alisson are the best keepers in the world. None of this ballerina Ederson nonsense.— Eden (@theKloppEnd_) August 14, 2021
You score once and they expect it every game.
Disappointed Alisson hasn't scored yet.— DaveOCKOP (@DaveOCKOP) August 14, 2021
