Liverpool boss has talked about Alisson’s performance against Manchester City.

After

Alisson’s

poor performance in

the Reds

’ 4-1 defeat against Manchester City, their boss talked about him, saying that he believes in the Brazilian goalkeeper.

"We had, of course, a little talk,"

Klopp stated ahead of this weekend's clash with fellow top-four hopefuls Leicester City.

"If it’s then about encouragement or whatever, I don’t know.

"It’s just a little talk and he was not happy that it happened, of course. But it’s very important to realise in a moment like this, goalkeepers in a long career, they make mistakes.

"For a goalkeeper of the quality of Alisson Becker, it’s pretty rare that he makes this kind of mistake and that he makes two of them in one game, that’s clear as well.

"But on top of that, goalkeepers are used to making mistakes. It means they have to stay in the game, they concede a goal and they know maybe earlier than all the rest of the world, 'I should have saved it!'

"They have to deal with that always and he has just a few days in between the City game and this game."

And about other players’ reaction to Alisson’s mistakes he added:

"There was absolutely no real criticism from our side, from the boys, from the players around him because everybody knows how good he is," he explained.

"He’s a very calm person, and now the next game is coming up and that’s good so he can play his normal level again and then everything will be fine."
