Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson: We're champions in anyother league in the world

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson was left frustrated on missing out on the Premier League title to Manchester City.

City's dramatic 3-2 win at home to Aston Villa, having been 2-0 down with around 15 minutes remaining, meant there was nothing Liverpool could have done to have wrestled the title back off the Manchester side.

After their defeat of Wolves, Alisson told Sky Sports: "With 92 points you'd be champions in pretty much all the leagues in the world, but here you aren't. Sometimes you have to do more.

"We're not going to be negative and look at games where we dropped points. Every game in the Premier League is a fight, the standard is so high."

He was asked about whether or not the players were aware of events unfolding at the Etihad.

"We couldn't be too aware of things that were happening in their game. We were really focused on our match," the Brazilian responded.

We heard the fans shouting and celebrating a few times, so we knew something had happened. We were really focused on doing our job.

"We got the win and the points, but it wasn't enough. We're frustrated because we worked really hard to get the title, but we have to be really proud. Congratulations to Manchester City.'

Alisson said the club's attention would turn to Saturday's Champions League final, but not before they had got over the frustration of missing out on the Premier League title.

He said: "Today we'll forget that we're in the Champions League final because it's frustrating, but from tomorrow we'll start to think about the final and go on."
