Ex-Man Utd keeper’s theory on Liverpool mix-up points blame at Alisson

Former Man Utd goalkeeper Mark Bosnich feels Alisson is solely to blame for his mix-up with Liverpool teammate Ozan Kabak against Leicester.

The Brazilian stopper came haring out of his box to try and clear a ball over the top, but ended up colliding with Kabak, who was trying to remove the danger himself.

Jamie Vardy was the grateful recipient, collecting the loose ball and dribbling it into the empty net.

After the game debate raged over which player was to blame for the error, but Bosnich has no doubt in his mind that Liverpool's No.1 was at fault.

"He [Alisson] has to take the vast majority of the responsibility, especially for the recent mistakes," Bosnich told Sky Sports .

"It's not helped him having a completely different centre-back pairing consistently since Virgil van Dijk has been out injured, including the new signing at the weekend.

"With the one at the weekend, with no crowds, there should be no reason whatsoever that the defender doesn't hear him coming to get the ball.

"He's low on confidence, there is no doubt about that. We saw what happened against Manchester City and it happened again at the weekend."

It's been an extremely interesting start to the season for Jurgen Klopp's men.

They got their title defence off to a shaky start as they edged out a seven-goal thriller against Leeds, before going on to conceded seven in a hammering by Aston Villa.

Virgil van Dijk's season was ended by injury in the 2-2 draw at Everton, leaving the title favourites looking far less secure at the back – especially with Alisson's injury worries too.

But there's no slowing down in what is going to be a busy campaign – with Klopp ensuring his men continue at full pace as they bid for more title glory.

Liverpool had looked on course for their victory until James Maddison's free-kick goal for Leicester survived a VAR offside review to draw them level, prior to Alisson's blunder.

Kabak then lost Harvey Barnes who raced in behind the Liverpool new boy to score the third goal and seal the comeback win.

"I feel really sorry for Liverpool, especially when the first goal was offside and the player going for the ball impacted the goalkeeper," Bosnich added.

"When it rains, it pours. It just isn't going well for Liverpool at this time."

The defeat eventually saw the reigning champions drop out of the top four following wins for both West Ham and Chelsea on Monday.

Liverpool now have a brief respite from their domestic form with Champions League action, but return with a tough test in the Merseyside derby against Everton on Saturday.
