Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson blames Van Dijk for his mistake against Leicester City

Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, has partly blamed Virgil van Dijk for his mistake in their 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday.

Goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino put Jurgen Klopp’s side in front but Leicester were given a lifeline after Alisson’s blunder resulted in Rachid Ghezzal’s goal.

Van Dijk’s pass back to Alisson forced the Brazilian wide of the goal but the Liverpool goalkeeper botched his turn with the ball and was dispossessed by Nigerian star, Kelechi Iheanacho, who passed the ball across for Ghezzal to slot in.

Alisson has assured Liverpool fans that he will not make the same mistake in future.

He, however, revealed he spoke to Van Dijk after the game about the pass he received from his Liverpool teammate in the build-up to Leicester’s goal.

“It was a reading the play mistake by me,” Alisson told ESPN Brasil.

“I didn’t receive that good of a pass, we spoke about that in the dressing room, I spoke to Virgil, it wasn’t that good of a pass.

“I also had all the conditions to kick the ball away and tried to keep playing, keep the possession.

“Everyone analyses the games. Obviously, I won’t be stupid to make the same mistake.

“We have to learn from our mistakes. But its part of my game, I won’t be arrogant of saying that I will keep doing this. We have to learn from our mistakes.

“If it is necessary, the dribble has to be the last resource. Unfortunately, today it caused that goal.

“I think that it was a foul, but we can’t support ourselves on that.

“In this kind of play, here in the Premier League, not every collision is a foul.

“In my opinion it was, but it is part of the game, we can’t give room for that to happen on the pitch.”
