Alisson Red Card: Watch Liverpool goalkeeper makes a blunder and getting a red card against Brighton in the 15th Premier League game-week.

Liverpool’s Alisson Becker faces a horror as he was shown red card against Brighton in the dying minutes of the game, as he deliberately blocks the ball from his hands while being outside his 18-yard box.

The blunder by Alisson turned out to be disastrous as in the set-piece awarded to Brighton in return made Liverpool concede in a hilarious fashion.

Liverpool had a comfortable lead of 2 goals for the majority part of the game but with Luis Dunk’s free-kick left the deputy goalkeeper Adrian off-guard. It is safe to say that the incident was similar to what Liverpool did against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final.

With this, the scoreline stood 2-1, and Liverpool had to maintain their league till the full time with constant pressure from Brighton. On the other side, the direct red card to Alisson will make him stay away from following three games for Liverpool in English games.

Watch the blunder

The Brazilian International has remained out of action for Liverpool for the majority of games in this season so far, as first he picked an injury after the first game-week against Norwich City after which he had to remain out of action for the next 2 months.

Now, with this card, Adrian will have to guard Liverpool’s goal-post for next three games until his superior is cleared off the charges. The Spaniard looked nervy after coming on the pitch while taking the charge of the goal as Jurgen Klopp had to sacrifice Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to bring Adrian on the pitch.

Despite it, Klopp wouldn’t be much worried as his side still has a long lead in the table and with Manchester City dropping points today, he is much closer to the title with this hard-earned victory.

Nevertheless, a huge blunder by the first choice goalkeeper of Liverpool, which could have cost the Reds a game with such pressure to deal by the end.
