Alisson Becker is the most important signing made by Klopp during the summer transfer window, that’s according to former Liverpool and Manchester United’s striker Michael Owen.

The former United striker applauded the German tactician for spending huge amount on the Brazilian goalie, who has been wonderful for the Reds so far this season.

Owen was full of praise for the former Borussia Dortmund manager for signing the netminder as the team desperately need to bring in a quality goalkeeper before the close of the window.

The Merseyside club completed their move for Alisson’s signature when they broke the world record by paying £68.8m to Roma earlier in the month, though, Chelsea goaltender Kepa Arrizabalaga subsequently set another record when he completed his £72m move to Stamford Bridge from Athletic Bilbao.

Though it is too early to talk on who would win the Premier League title this season, Owen admits the Merseyside club stand huge chances of beating Manchester City to the Premier League glory by the end of the season in May 2019.

“Well I definitely think so (it’s a great chance to win the league),” he said.

Alisson, who have kept two clean sheets, was lively for the Reds during the game against Brighton this evening.

The Brazilian was able to prevent the Seagulls strikers from scoring as he was awesome between the sticks, keeping another clean sheet to make it three in three matches.

Maurizio Sarri

West London outfit Chelsea were again defeated in front of their fans at the Stamford Bridge on Monday night by Man United in the round of the FA Cup.

No thanks to Paul Pogba and Herrera who ensured they add more woes to the Blues boss Maurizio Sarri who is known to be under pressure especially after the initial 6-0 humiliation against Man City.

In his reaction, Paul Merson, football analyst stated that the pattern of the former Napoli boss is a lazy tactic and it will not work out in England as the West London outfit saw their fifth defeat in their last 10 games of the season across all competitions.

This has called for questioning over the tactics and playing style by the Italian boss who has ever won ay trophy as a manager in his history.

Paul Merson stated that the West London outfit have not got the money power to be able to spend big on defenders like Man City which is the reason why his style will not work out because his players have not got the ability to carry out the instructions.

He therefore hint that the Blues made the wrong choice because Maurizio Sarri had always employed the Sarri Ball style but has never won a title.
