'In the end': Jurgen Klopp says one Liverpool player was 'exceptional' in draw with Brighton on Saturday

Liverpool once again faltered in their bid to challenge for the Premier League title, drawing 3-3 with Brighton.

Speaking to Viaplay Fotball, Klopp wasn’t pleased with Liverpool’s latest outing.

However, Klopp did single out goalkeeper Alisson Becker, saying the Brazilian goalkeeper made some ‘exceptional’ saves.

Brighton had six shots on target all game, and Alisson was forced to make a few brilliant stops.

However, there was nothing he could do about Leandro Trossard’s hat-trick in Roberto de Zerbi’s first Brighton match.

Liverpool have stuttered this season, with plenty of last season’s stars not reaching the same heights.

However, Alisson has been one of Liverpool’s best players this season, but will be hoping for more support from this defenders going forward.

Klopp: ‘Alisson made a few exceptional saves’

Speaking to Viaplay Fotball after the match, Klopp said: “But in the end, we have to admit that with all the chances Brighton had on top of the goals they scored, Ali made a few exceptional saves.

“It’s a deserved point for Brighton.”

When the 30-year-old goalkeeper arrived from Roma in 2018, he was responsible for replacing Loris Karius.

Karius had just played a pivotal role in Liverpool’s Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.

It was up to Alisson to raise the confidence of Liverpool defence – and their fans – between the sticks.

He’s done that superbly, becoming one of the finest goalkeepers in the Premier League.

Alisson saves some of his best performances for the biggest games, playing superbly in the Merseyside derby last month.

The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez have all received their fair share of criticism this season.

However, Klopp thinks Alisson has been exceptional, and few Liverpool fans will disagree with his verdict.
