'Liverpool have had Mignolet back in goal' - Carragher criticises Alisson form
The form of goalkeeper Alisson Becker should be a concern to Liverpool, according to Jamie Carragher, who believes the Brazilian’s recent performances remind him of former Reds stopper Simon Mignolet.
However, his usual high-performance levels seem to have dipped slightly in recent months.Since the Premier League restart in June he has kept just three clean sheets in 10 matches and has conceded 15goals in eight Premier League appearances since Liverpool secured the title at the start of July.
Prior to that he had conceded just 12goals in 20 league appearances, keeping 10 clean sheets in that time.
He has yet to secure a shutout so far this campaign, conceding once in the Community Shield defeat to Arsenal at Wembley before shipping three goals in last weekend’s season-opening victory against Leeds United at Anfield.
Those numbers have not gone unnoticed by former Reds defender Carragher, who says Alisson’s displays bring back memories of Belgian international Mignolet.
The 32-year-old, who now plays back in his homeland for Club Brugge, madeseveral high-profile errors during his time at Anfield and was regularly dropped from the side.
It was those inconsistent displays that prompted Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to spend £65million (€73m/$85m) on Alisson two years ago.
"Whether that’s just a blip and he’ll get back to normal, I don’t wanna get too carried away, but it’s certainly a slight worry coming here.It is something that needs sorting out pretty quickly."
