Stats show Liverpool's Alisson the outstanding keeper in England

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker's stats prove him the best performer in the Premier League.

Despite an error at Leicester City, Alisson boasts outstanding figures from his first four games in England.

Alisson has made 118 passes to his team-mates so far and has an accuracy of 97 per cent for those over short distances, with 66% of his long balls finding outfield players in the opposition half.

That 66% is nearly twice as high as the second highest on the list of Premier League goalkeepers at just 38% .

That gives the former Roma keeper an impressive overall rate of a whopping 88% for his passing accuracy and his ability with the ball at his feet was a key feature behind Liverpool's decision to make him the world's most expensive goalkeeper in July.

The Liverpool Echo says three clean sheets so far sees Alisson with a shots-saved percent of 90.9 , with 10 stops in the four games and he has conceded the least in the top flight.
