Alisson Liverpool's Last Line of Defense

Alisson Liverpool's Last Line of Defense

12 Dec 2018, 13:50

It was a dramatic and nervy night at Anfield, with Liverpool advancing to the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Napoli, after a string of saves from Alisson Becker.

Opta's "expected goals" metric uses stats from shots on target, saves and more to calculate a complicated equation that delivers a simple result - the number of goals expected to be scored/conceded by a team. Opta's metric below gives a verdict so far and it shows that Alisson is overachieving with respect to his peers.

It seems that Alisson is definitely living up to some of the hype around him as one of the best shot-stoppers in the game. He'll be in action again on Sunday at Anfield when Manchester United are Liverpool's visitors in the English Premier League.
