Liverpool have been an absolute defensive machine this season so it’s ironic that in one of their biggest games of the season they were undone by sloppiness at the back.

Joe Gomez, quite brilliant so far this season, was out of place at right-back and Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk weren’t their normal selves in the centre.

Andy Robertson was good but only one man really shone at the back and that was goalkeeper Alisson.

He kept his side in the game with a string of great saves and couldn’t be blamed for either of the PSG goals.

It leaves Liverpool in a precarious position in the Champions League with everything hinging on the last game against Napoli.

Put simply, if Liverpool win 1-0 or by two goals they’re guaranteed to qualify. If Liverpool win 2-1, 3-2, 4-3, etc and PSG also win then Liverpool are out. If Liverpool win and PSG draw then Liverpool top the group not matter what they win by.

And if Alisson can perform at the same level in that game then Jurgen Klopp should be contemplating the knockout stage of the Champions League over Christmas.

Meanwhile, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to regale Wednesday night’s hero even if Alisson couldn’t do enough to help his side get a result.

Here are the best reactions to the Liverpool goalkeeper in France:
