Alisson has been named as the Premier League's best goalkeeper by Welcome to World Class voters, comprehensively beating Chelsea's Edouard Mendy and Manchester City's Ederson to the number-one spot.

Fans were asked by 90min to cast their votes on who is the top goalie in England's top flight and it's the Brazilian who has come out on top, beating second placed Mendy - who boasts some incredible statistics - by a healthy 27.5% margin. Ederson comes in third, earning 9.3% of the vote.

While he didn't retain his number-one spot from the inaugural edition of #W2WC - finishing behind Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak in second and Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer in first - he has still proved his worth to Liverpool on countless occasions.

The Brazil number one famously scored a flying header against West Brom earlier this year to practically earn the Reds a spot in the Champions League during a season where they were hampered by injury issues.

He also played twice in the 2021 Copa America as Brazil reached the final, ultimately losing to Argentina.

Of all the #W2WC goalkeeper contenders, none made more saves than Alisson's 105, while only Mendy (78.6%) had a greater save percentage than the former Roma star (70.8%). He also tops the metric for saves from inside the box with 74, and his passing accuracy (86.6%) trumps any other shot-stopper, the closest being 85.3%.
