4 Alisson once again showed exactly why Klopp got Liverpool to spend £67million on him The Liverpool boss revealed he gave his thanks to Alisson for his man-of-the-match performance and the funny, Roy Keane-esque, response the Brazilian gave. “I said to him now: ‘Thank you for saving our backside again’,” the Liverpool boss told Sky Sports. “He said: ‘That’s my job’. Of course it is very helpful to have a world-class goalkeeper at the back!” “It was a bit Jekyll and Hyde football today,” Klopp added. Getty 4 Alisson made a number of top saves – but that is his job! “You could see how good we can be, we were incredible in the first 35 minutes. Then after an intense week – away at Arsenal – I don’t have any real explanation but the intensity might be one. “We became sloppy in the last line. In the second half we were not compact, the first line pressed too high and the distance was not right. “We played a high line and did not catch them offside which was our fault of course.” Getty Liverpool are nine points behind leaders Manchester City but have a game in hand on them Goals from Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain put Liverpool in charge in the first half but Odsonne Edouard pulled one back ten minutes after the break. Patrick Vieira’s side huffed and puffed for the equaliser and were denied by Alisson’s fine efforts before Fabinho’s late penalty sealed the three points for the visitors. However, the spot-kick was awarded in controversial circumstances as Diogo Jota collided with Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita. Referee Kevin Friend initially didn’t give the penalty but changed his mind after being advised to look at the incident again by VAR. Getty 4 The Palace faithful were incensed to see this spot-kick given The decision sparked uproar on social media and among the home supporters but Klopp defended Friend’s call. Klopp said: “I haven’t seen it back but I don’t think I need to. VAR thought it was a penalty, the ref saw it as a penalty and they’re the people. “The Crystal Palace people saw it as no penalty, I understand, but I think that’s the proof you need.” Betting Offer Of The Day WILLIAM HILL – 30/1 for Both Teams To Score – Chelsea v Spurs* –
