Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum leaps to defence of underfire Alisson

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum has jumped to the defence of Alisson after his errors in defeat to Manchester City.

Wijnaldum was quick to defend the goalkeeper, highlighting the occasions the Brazilian has made vital saves to win points for his side.

"When you play football, you always know everyone can make a mistake. If you look at the whole season, I don't know how many players made a mistake," Wijnaldum told Liverpool's official website.

"And if you look at the other side, he [Alisson] saved us so much. It will always happen that a goalkeeper makes a mistake. You just try to fix it in the game.

"We were more disappointed that we couldn't change it around for him because if you look at since he was here how many times he saved us – he won trophies for us – it's difficult that we couldn't change it around for him."
