Liverpool’s defence has been impassable in recent weeks. Despite not losing a game since last January, The Reds struggled to keep a clean sheet at the start of the season, those days are behind us. If Alisson manages to keep another clean sheet tonight he will draw level with the Golden Glove league leaders.

Jürgen Klopp’s side won every game from the opening day until the middle of October when his side were held to a controversial draw against Manchester United.

The Reds managed this streak with backup keeper Adrian in goal. The Spaniard was thrust into the lineup when Alisson fell to injury on the opening day against Norwich – his first game back was against The Red Devils.

Ali claimed the Premier League Golden Glove by a hair last season, winning out with 21 shutouts to Ederson’s 20.

At the minute the table is led by Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City), Dean Henderson (Sheffield United), Ben Foster (Watford) and Nick Pope (Burnley) – all tied on eight clean sheets for the season.

 

Becker now has seven shutouts to his name, meaning that if Alisson keeps a clean sheet against Wolves tonight he will draw level in the charts.

For the Brazilian to be tied at the top at this stage of the season having missed nine weeks of football would be an incredible feat.

We have the best goalkeeper in the world bar none, the fact that he is on course to retain his Premier League Golden Glove despite an early season injury is testament to his ability.
