Liverpool didn’t lose under Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk solid and Alisson kept more clean sheets than he saved as Man United and now Villarreal found out recently


No team can come close to Liverpool’s goal at the moment.

In fact, in their last three games, goaltender Alisson has kept more clean sheets than he has made saves.

In Premier League matches against Manchester United and Everton, he made one save in every game as the club won 4-0 and 2-0 respectively.

And against Villarreal in the Champions League semi-final, he made none as the Reds stormed to an easy 2-0 win.

It helps that he has Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate ahead of him – the latter never lost when he played for Liverpool.

Signed from RB Leipzig for £36m in 2021, the centre-back has played 23 games and won 18.

The Reds kept their quadruple dream alive against Villarreal where an own goal from Pervis Estupinan followed by a strike from Sadio Mane gave them control ahead of the second leg.

“We know we’re going there and it will be a tricky atmosphere for us and different to tonight,” said manager Jurgen Klopp.

“Their players, you saw it tonight, they fight with everything they have and what I love [is] so everyone can see that we fought with everything we have. It’s always the same thing.”
