Liverpool hold a 1-0 lead against arch-rivals Manchester United at Anfield, courtesy of a Virgil van Dijk header, as stoppage time ticks towards a conclusion.
Alisson Becker safely catches the ball from the visitors’ latest attack and spots an opportunity to guide what would become an assist into the opposition half. If you’re a goalkeeper and want to learn how to punt the ball with precision then watch his kick by Alisson.
Mohamed Salah is on the same wavelength; the Egyptian’s pace holds off the recovering Daniel James and he’s got the composure to beat the goalkeeper at the Kop end. Alisson does a knee slide into Salah after sprinting the length of the field. He’s the first Liverpool to celebrate with Salah.
Mo Salah and Alisson combine to finish it in style. What a laser of a kick by Alisson Becker to pick out Salah.
Since Alisson’s punt isn’t in the air too long, more of a direct strike, Salah is able to out run any Manchester United players trying to catch him. Yes, Salah’s speed helps too but the kick by Alisson is on a rope as they say and right to Salah’s feet.
