'Top quality': Alisson names the two Liverpool teammates who've really impressed him in training recently
Alisson has admitted that both Kostas Tsimikas and Harvey Elliott have both impressed him in training on the club’s official website.
Catching the eye
Elliott and Tsimikas have played important roles at Liverpool this season, with Jurgen Klopp giving the pair a chance.
Elliott had a wonderful pre-season and has since broken into Liverpool’s midfield at the start of the Premier League campaign.
Tsimikas, meanwhile, has slotted into the side after Andy Robertson was ruled out with injury.
The Reds have since taken maximum points from their first two Premier League matches, with Tsimikas picking up the Man of the Match award in their last outing.
But their form has been no surprise for Alisson.
He said: “It’s not a surprise because I can see what they are doing in training. Kostas and Harvey, they are two fighters with top quality.
“Top-quality players with good skills, good technique and with a proper mentality, a Liverpool mentality, fighting to the end. The last two matches were really strong challenges for them and I believe they did really well on the pitch.
“Kostas in the last match was Man of the Match, so this is really important for him. Not only for him and for Harvey, but for the team, for everybody. These kind of things give us confidence to keep improving.”
It now remains to be seen whether Jurgen Klopp will put Elliott and Tsimikas into position to start for Liverpool in their next match.
Liverpool are due to take on Chelsea at the weekend, which means both players would arguably be playing their most important game for the club to date.
Both Liverpool and Chelsea are set to be among the main contenders to win the Premier League this year, and victory for either side on Saturday would really send out a statement of intent.
