'Good start for us': Alisson speaks up after Leeds thriller

  • The keeper claims that they were prepared for what they saw from Leeds at Anfield.
  • Still, he believes Liverpool had a good performance as well.
  • Alisson is especially happy for Mo Salah who found the net three times on the very first day of the new season.

"It's a good start for us. We know what we were waiting for and what their [Leeds'] attitude would be on the match," Alisson Becker told the official Liverpool website after a 4-3 win over Leeds United.

"I think they are a really good team with good quality but with a brave heart also. They made our night difficult tonight but I think their night was even more difficult because of the way we played.

"I'm happy to have Mo Salah on the team and that he scored a hat-trick in the first official match of the season. I'm really happy for the three points also."

It's hard to really blame Alisson for the three goals he conceded on Saturday, but he certainly should be concerned after the game where most of his defenders did not look particularly convincing.

Luckily, Mo Salah saved the day by scoring Liverpool's first hat-trick ever on the opening day - and it's just one of the records the Egyptian set against Leeds.
