Alisson won't be 'stupid' and repeat Liverpool howler, but still feels he was fouled

The Brazilian gifted Leicester a goal in a 2-1 win at the King Power Stadium, with the Reds goalkeeper paying the price for playing out from the back

Alisson insists he will not be stupid and repeat the mistake which saw Liverpool concede their first Premier League goal of the season at Leicester.

Jurgen Klopps side were once again short of their free-flowing best at the King Power Stadium, but had seized control of the contest courtesy of first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

They were left sweating on a fourth successive victory at the start of the 2018-19 campaign after seeing their 67 million ($84m) goalkeeper pay the price for trying to play his way out from the back.

Alisson was forced into a difficult position by a wayward back-pass from Virgil van Dijk, but his efforts to try and turn past Kelechi Iheanacho came back to haunt him as Rachid Ghezzal was gifted a response for the Foxes.

Liverpool have been haunted by goalkeeping mistakes over recent years, with Loris Karius moved out of Anfield on the back of two in the Champions League final, but their new No. 1 insists he will learn from his early experiences in England.

Alisson told ESPN Brasil on his high-profile howler: It was a bad reaction to a mistake, a defensive mistake. The most important thing was we got the win.

I am angry that I made a mistake that put the team in a difficult situation. When one person makes a mistake, it affects everyone and everyone fought back together. We have to improve still but the result is what matters at the moment.

Asked if he will try a similar move again, rather than clear his lines, the 25-year-old added: It was bad judgement.

I made a mistake reading the play. I didnt get a very good pass. We talked about that in the dressing room and I spoke to Virgil. It wasnt a good pass but I could have just kicked it long.

I wanted to keep playing and keep the possession. Now everyone is going to analyse that.

Im not going to be stupid and make the same mistake. We have to learn from our mistakes. It is part of my game [playing with the ball at his feet] but I am not going to be arrogant to stand here and say Im going to keep doing it. We have to learn from our mistakes.

If it is necessary the dribble has to be the last resort. Unfortunately, today, it caused the goal.
While prepared to accept responsibility for what could have been a costly error in judgement, Alisson believes he could have been spared from being thrust under the spotlight by the match officials.

He said of his tangle with Iheanacho: I actually think it was a foul but I dont want to blame it on that.

In the Premier League its not the kind of contact that results in a foul. Its part of the game. I just have to make sure that doesnt happen again.
