‘World-class’: Liverpool legend Owen states 31-year-old proved he is ‘the best’ at Crystal Palace.



“World-class”: According to Liverpool legend Owen, the 31-year-old demonstrated at Crystal Palace that he is “the best.”Michael Owen, a legendary figure at Liverpool, believes that against Crystal Palace, goalkeeper Alisson Becker demonstrated he is “the best in the world” by making an outstanding save to prevent Jefferson Lerma.

On Saturday, in the 27th minute, the 31-year-old prevented Lerma from breaking the deadlock, an action that left Owen in astonishment. When Crystal Palace were down to Liverpool and Jordan Ayew passed the ball to Lerma for a shot, the visitors were at their mercy. Alisson, however, had a different notion when he leapt into action.Ayew stormed forward into an enormous void, while Konstantinos Tsimikas made a valiant attempt to intercept a cross by charging back. Additionally, Virgil van Dijk failed to attempt to close down the 32-year-old. Despite maintaining an unobstructed line to defend the front of the box, he was unable to intercept a direct pass.Alisson Becker rescued Liverpool by preventing Jefferson of Crystal Palace.

Odsonne Edouard was the intended recipient of Ayew’s pass after the forward surpassed Jarell Quansah to gain goal-side position. Wataru Endo was unable to intercept the pass that reached Lerma, whereas Trent Alexander-Arnold meandered backwards. In anticipation, Selhurst Park members rose to their feet as well.However, Alisson refused to be defeated and made a masterful save to deflect Lerma’s strike onto the post. Upon the midfielder’s shot, his reaction time was reduced to a fraction of a second subsequent to Ayew’s cross traversing the Reds’ box. However, he managed to catch enough of the projectile to eliminate its entire speed.


Michael Owen considers Alisson Becker to be “the greatest” goalkeeper on the planet.Alisson was fortunate that the Brazilian’s laborious effort was not in futile, as Lerma’s shot was cleared by Alexander-Arnold. The attack of Crystal Palace subsequently stalled as Liverpool finished off their defenses. Furthermore, that was the only effort made by the Eagles to threaten Alisson’s goal in the initial half.


Owen was similarly astonished by Alisson’s lightning-fast reactions in stopping Lerma and Crystal Palace, proclaiming the Liverpool ace the preeminent goalkeeper globally. Additionally, the 63-cap Selecao international arrived at Selhurst Park this season with four clean sheets in thirteen Premier League appearances.


“For this reason, Alisson is the best in the world, in my opinion,” Owen exclaimed to Premier League Productions (9/12, 13:39). “He does receive assistance from the post.” “However, it is an absolute world-class save, and Alisson is incomparable.”
