Jürgen Klopp saluted the consistency and elite qualities of Alisson Becker as the goalkeeper prepares to make his 100th appearance for Liverpool.

Alisson is in line to reach the landmark against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, with his previous 99 matches consisting of 74 wins and only 12 defeats. 

“After 100 games for Liverpool, I don’t have to speak about the importance of Ali - it could’ve been already more [appearances],” Klopp said.

“I would say 99 good ones so far. I can’t remember a game when he was not spot on, so that’s good.

“And of course it’s important. When you have a world-class goalkeeper, you want to have him in your goal. The more often you can do that, the better it is for us and so I am very happy.”
