Liverpool are firmly in the hunt to claim their first Premier League crown this season, with the Reds trailing Manchester City by one point.
There are nine games remaining and the quest for silverware could go right down to the wire.
Jurgen Klopp’s men suffered a setback at the weekend when they were held to a goalless draw by Everton.
It did represent another shutout for goalkeeper Alisson however who is on course to break a record currently held by Pepe Reina.
The Spaniard kept 20 clean sheets during the 2005/06 campaign with Liverpool’s current custodian currently on 17.
Reina has jumped to the support of the Brazilian on Twitter, saying:

Reina clearly still holds Liverpool in high regard and this tweet has naturally delighted the club’s supporters.
The current Milan stopper played 396 times for Liverpool in all competitions during a nine-year spell at Anfield.
He is clearly rooting for the Reds to win the title, whilst he would love for Alisson to smash his clean sheet record in the process.
Following Reina’s words of support, Liverpool fans have taken to social media to offer their thoughts on the situation.
