Alisson debuts in Reds 5-0 Riot

 

Napoli was thrashed on Saturday, as they lost 5-0 to Liverpool, who had Alisson appearing in goal for the first time.

Alisson pulled on a Liverpool shirt for the first time on Saturday in a crushing 5-0 win over Napoli in Dublin.

Alisson signed last month in a world-record deal from Roma, had very little to do because the Reds dominated their penultimate pre-season friendly and deservedly thrashed the Serie A side.

It took Jurgen Klopp’s team only 4 minutes to take the lead – James Milner lashing home left-footed from the edge of the area following Sadio Mane’s cut-back.

And Georginio Wijnaldum made it 2-0 quickly after, exploiting suspect goalkeeping from Orestis Karnezis to head in Milner’s pinpoint cross.

Fans had to wait for Liverpool’s third, however, it eventually arrived simply before the hour as the ball broke kindly for Mohamed Salah in the penalty area and he picked out the top-left corner.

Daniel Sturridge waited long to get in on the act but quickly made amends, smashing home a rebound with 73 minutes on the clock.

And Alberto Moreno wrapped things up a few moments later, beating Karnezis at his near post with a rasping 20-yard drive.
