Plenty of Liverpool fans deeply missed goalkeeper Alisson Becker as we were knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The 27-year-old was forced to sit out his side’s second leg tie against Atletico Madrid after picking up a hip injury in training, and also missed our 2-1 win against Bournemouth.

Because of this, the second choice shot-stopper Adrian stepped in and had an evening to forget at Anfield after making a costly error as we lost 3-2 on the night to the Spanish giants. Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino looked to have us on our way into the quarter-finals. But a poor clearance from the Spaniard meant that Marcos Llorente could gather possession and score. This was one of two goals that he netted and Alvaro Morata killed us off at the death of extra-time.

Was Alisson missed against Atletico Madrid?

Yes

Yes

No

No

As a result, supporters were ruing the absence of Alisson, in addition to their slating of the Spaniard, and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he misses him dearly, while said that Wednesday night’s game was a “bitter pill to swallow”.
