There are a lot of players who joined new clubs in the Premier League during the summer who are performing exceptionally well for their new clubs.
Lucas Torreira of Arsenal is enjoying a great run of form, Richarlison at Everton has been scoring goals for fun, Felipe Anderson at West Ham has taken to English football like a duck to water and Jorginho has made a massive impact at Chelsea.
However, Liverpool’s Alisson Becker has to be considered the best signing made by any Premier League side during the last transfer window.
His only real blip was his horrendous error away to Leicester City, where he tried a Cruyff turn in the area, but that aside, he has been incredible for Liverpool, who without him, would not be in the knockout stages of the Champions League and would not have had their best start to a season ever.
As those interested in football betting will be aware, Manchester City went into the season as huge favourites to win the Premier League but Liverpool have mounted a serious challenge and Alisson has been a huge reason for their initial success.
The Brazilian international made a great save to prevent Andre Gomes from opening the scoring in the Merseyside derby, a game Liverpool went on to win 1-0.
He followed that up with an excellent stop to prevent Burnley from grabbing a late equaliser at Turf Moor, before releasing a quick counter-attack which led to Xherdan Shaqiri securing a much-needed win.
Then, with Champions League qualification hanging in the balance as Liverpool led Napoli 1-0 at Anfield, the ball fell to Arkadiusz Milik in the Reds’ penalty area and he looked destined to score, but the 26-year-old goalkeeper was quickly off his line and he spread himself so well to keep his side in Europe’s most prestigious competition.
Alisson hasn’t been flawless, he’s made errors against Leicester City and Man United this season, but his impact cannot be ignored or underestimated.
Whilst there have been many great additions made across the top-flight, none of the new signings have been as impactful as Liverpool’s new number one.
