Well, he did warn you.
Not one week ago, Alisson Becker admitted to enjoying the odd heart-attack inducing 'calculated risk' in his play, following a cheeky dink over Anthony Knockaert last weekend.
Back then manager Jurgen Klopp seemed uncharacteristically Grinchian when he called the
After becoming the last Premier League team to concede a goal this season, the travelling Liverpool fans might have hoped these sort of goalkeeping mishaps were firmly behind them before Rachid Ghezzal slotted into a gaping net.
Fortunately, Liverpool managed to hold on for three points at the King Power keeping them at the summit of the Premier League table, while Alisson presumably avoided eye contact with Klopp for the whole bus ride home.
Funnily enough, Twitter had a few things to say about Alisson's gaffe. Here's some of them...

Perhaps because of his great beard, near perfect performance until now and (more likely) the fact that Liverpool won the game, most Reds fans were actually pretty forgiving...
To concede his first goal:— Rex (@ThatRexGuy) September 1, 2018
It took Alisson almost leaving his box, attempting to Cruyff turn a striker, and STILL nearly made the save after a 15 yard dead sprint
I absolutely love the mad bastard. Worth every cent. #LFC
Silly mistake by Alisson, but hardly the reason to slate him for it. You cannot out-dribble them all - although i hope he learns from this.— Alexey Yaroshevsky (@YaroLFC) September 1, 2018
Besides, another top class save in the first half
#LFC had this with Pepe Reina. A couple of mistakes and pundits started urging him to punt it 80 yards up the pitch. It was a bad mistake from Alisson but the only thing which needs work is knowing when to do it. If he starts lumping it, it defeats the object of his signing.— Kristian Walsh (@Kristian_Walsh) September 1, 2018
Relieved Alisson’s error didn’t cost any points; he’s been superb so far. Mistakes like that will happen from time to time when you have a keeper who takes risks on the ball. What he brings to the side far outweighs the occasional lapse.— Joel Rabinowitz (@joel_archie) September 1, 2018
That’s Alisson’s FIRST error leading to a goal in over 50 games. Relax. #LFC— Anfield Edition (@AnfieldEdition) September 1, 2018
Alisson was tired with the cleansheets— Jamal noni (@_essiah) September 1, 2018
