Liverpool boss Klopp stunned by Alisson winner: An absolute worldie!

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was left stunned by Alisson's late winner against West Bromwich Albion.

With 94 minutes on the clock and the scores tied at 1-1, the Brazilian went up for a corner and buried a brilliant header into the top corner.

"Wow, is a pretty good word. It was spectacular and a good game," Klopp told BBC Sport. "What a moment! That is so far the highlight. I hope we have time for another highlight [this season]. It was a tricky game. Winning that way is really special. I couldn't be happier in the moment.

"It's the best goal I've ever seen scored by a goalkeeper! Striker's score like that. If Olivier Giroud scores like that you say it's a worldie. It's a worldie! Wow!

"[Alisson's] our player, our boy and our brother. When he is suffering we are all suffering. It's hard in these moments. There are more important things than football but when football can deliver moments like this for him, and all the boys, and our fans, then football is the best thing for a few seconds than anything else out there."

He added to Sky Sports: "It's an unbelievable header, I've never seen anything like that, good technique. I wasn't sure what I was seeing."
