Jurgen Klopp says he has been surprised by how good Alisson Becker has been for Liverpool this season.
The shotstopper sealed a £67m move from Serie A side Roma to Anfield during the summer transfer window and has been a major influence on the Reds' upturn in form this season.
However, when Klopp was asked which Liverpool player has surprised him this season, he told ESPN Brasil: "Well, maybe that Ali is such a good football player.
"It was always very clear that he was a very influential player with the ball, but that he's this good I didn't see it, honestly - maybe because of a different style Roma played.
"That was a little bit of a surprise, and a very nice surprise."
