Ex-Man Utd keeper blames Liverpool shotstopper Alisson for error at the King Power stadium.

Updated: Feb 17, 2021

Leicester City's Foxes benefited from the mistake between Keeper Alisson and defender Ozan Kabak’s on Saturday as Liverpool fell to a defeat.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich believes Brazil international Alisson was to blame for the error that led to Leicester City’s second goal at the King Power stadium.

Poor communication between Alisson and his Liverpool teammate Ozan Kabak led to both Reds colliding as they attempted to clear a long ball, which eventually fell at the feet of striker Jamie Vardy, who calmly put the ball into the net.

Following the match, there were several discussions over who was to blame for the blunder, however, Bosnich reckons Alisson made a wrong call at the time.

"He [Alisson] has to take the vast majority of the responsibility, especially for the recent mistakes," Bosnich told Sky Sports.

"It's not helped him having a completely different centre-back pairing consistently since Virgil van Dijk has been out injured, including the new signing at the weekend.

"With the one at the weekend, with no crowds, there should be no reason whatsoever that the defender doesn't hear him coming to get the ball.

"He's low on confidence, there is no doubt about that. We saw what happened against Manchester City and it happened again at the weekend."

Bosnich added: "I feel really sorry for Liverpool, especially when the first goal was offside and the player going for the ball impacted the goalkeeper.

"When it rains, it pours. It just isn't going well for Liverpool at this time."
