Alisson: Delivering Big Moments In Liverpool's Title Bid

Sunday's 2-0 win at Cardiff was enough to push Liverpool to 88 points thus far, their highest points tally of the Premier League era with three games still to play.

Outsiders weren’t particularly convinced. Fast forward to the present and the critics have gone eerily quiet as it appears one man can indeed fix a defence.
