Alisson Becker‘s historic late header in last month’s dramatic 2-1 win over West Brom has been named Liverpool’s Goal of the Season.
The Brazilian kept his team’s hopes of Champions League qualification on track by heading in a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner to make it 2-1 in injury time at the Hawthorns on May 17.
In doing so, the Reds goalkeeper became the first goalie in the club’s 129-year history to find the back of the net in a competitive fixture.
Jurgen Klopp’s side finished the season third in the Premier League on 69 points, securing Champions League football after winning their final five matches of the season.
Alisson is now only the sixth goalkeeper to score in the Premier League, joining Peter Schmeichel, Brad Friedel, Paul Robinson, Tim Howard and Asmir Begovic on an exclusive list.
He was the first keeper in the competition to score with his head, and Liverpool fans understandably voted it the club’s Goal of the Season with 65 per cent of the votes.
