A section of Liverpool fans took to Twitter to rave over Alisson after his performance in their side’s 2-0 Premier League win against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

The goalkeeper, 25, was far busier in his second match for Jurgen Klopp’s side and made a string of fine saves in the second half as Palace rallied hard after James Milner’s penalty on the cusp of half-time.

But Alisson held firm and Sadio Mane wrapped up the three points late on to secure a second win and another clean sheet for Alisson, prompting a deluge of compliments from Liverpool supporters.

This I s Futbol has rounded up some of the best tweets:

COMMENTARY:

Reading through the social media acclaim for Alisson after his second Liverpool match, you could say the goalkeeper has won the supporters over. While no position is as capricious as the lonely job of stopping the ball go in the back of the net, and one catastrophic performance can swing a career (just ask Loris Karius), it was almost impossible to watch the big Brazilian last night and not be impressed. Alisson made a couple of super saves, including a brilliant one from a Christian Benteke header, and his distribution was outstanding. But it was his calmness, solidity and sheer presence that really suggested Liverpool’s £67million for the goalkeeper was money well spent. In the last 10 minutes as an impressive Palace threw everything at the visitors, there was no suggestion that Liverpool would buckle or succumb under immense pressure. Instead, they weathered the storm, and their brilliant new number paid a huge role in that.
