Newcastle boss Eddie Howe believes Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson’s stop on Miguel Almiron’s strike on Sunday was the finest he’s ever seen. Despite playing with one less player for the entirety of the game, the Reds prevailed 2-1.

After falling down by a goal and a man, the Merseyside club had their Brazil international to thank in the 36th minute of the match for an incredible stop. Almiron hit a lovely volley with his favored left foot, but Alisson saved it by pushing the goal-bound effort against the crossbar. Howe said After the game (via LFC Transfer Room):

“To quote a fan: “Alisson’s save, for Almiron’s shot, was the best I’ve ever seen in my life.”

As a consequence, Jurgen Klopp’s team headed into the interval behind by a solitary goal. The entrance of Darwin Nunez in the second half helped the team turn the game around.

Nunez scored two goals in 15 minutes as Liverpool completed an astonishing comeback. Both goals came from the right side of the box for the Uruguay international. The 24-year-old slotted both efforts past Nick Pope and into the far corner of the Newcastle goal, giving his team their second victory of the season.

After a difficult journey to St James’ Park, the Merseysiders will return to Anfield to face Aston Villa in their next fixture.
