The goalkeeper has been taunted on social media following his mistake that let the Foxes back into Saturday's Premier League match

After Loris Karius' double calamity in the Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid in June, another Liverpool goalkeeper has found himself red-faced following a horrible blunder.

Alisson was signed by Jurgen Klopp's side in the summer in the hope he would provide more reliable cover in goal, with his transfer fee of £67m ($84m) - then a world record for a shot-stopper - reflecting how much the Anfield side valued him.

However, he has shown himself prone to taking risks, and though he got away with his eccentricities against Brighton last weekend, he vowed to keep them in his game .

He may feel differently after allowing Leicester back into the game on Saturday. The Foxes trailed 2-0 when Kelechi Iheanacho stole the ball off him and set up Rachid Ghezzal to reduce the arrears of Claude Puel's side.

It was an error that set up a tense conclusion to the match and had Reds fans casting their minds back to Karius in Kiev.

Unsurprisingly, certain corners of Twitter were quick to laugh.


Nevertheless, some Liverpool fans are urging patience with their new keeper.

If he does it again, though, expect a less sympathetic reaction.
