Until before Trent Alexander Arnold's great cross-shot equalised against Manchester City in the 80th minute, all Liverpool's attention on the pitch was focused on the blunders of goalkeeper Alisson Becker in the first half, and although the Brazilian is largely credited with Erling Haaland's own goal, he did prove to be a decisive factor in rescuing a point from a tough visit to the stadium.



Nobody can deny that Becker during the first half hour of the game was very distant from what was happening on the pitch, giving signs of his weakness in the clearances very early in the match with a bad long pass that was intercepted and finished against him with some complications to catch the ball, being the goal the hard blow that made Alisson wake up for the complement, going from mockery and criticism to praise and applause with saves that could have left the score not in a 1-1 final.


But the play in which Alisson ended up redeeming his bad performance during the first half was the one in which TAA ended up scoring the 1-1, and it was Becker who seconds before had stopped a shot from Erling Haaland almost on the line that would have meant the definitive 2-0, but that handball of the Brazilian caused the departure from his area with Mac Allister and Ryan Gravenberch, having a quick advance to the area where the complicity of Luis Diaz, Mohamed Salah and Alexander Arnold ended with the ball in the back of the net.


In comparison to what happened a year ago where Becker was singled out as the hero who gave half a goal to Salah in the 1-0 victory, on this occasion his great save against Haaland can be taken as the salvation of a defeat that was looming with a double from the Android, causing this action the applause of a large sector of the fans who recognise him as a key piece of the confrontation, forgiving the vast majority of those failures with statements in networks where they put him as a player who has been more hits than misses during his time with the Reds,



Becker extends run of bad luck  


The errors against City are only part of the accumulation of bad moments that this goalkeeper has had in recent weeks, and to this we can add a couple of bad games with the Brazil national team in the qualifiers for the World Cup in 2026 as well as a discomfort that could turn into an injury after the end of the action at the Eithad Stadium. While Jurgen Klopp has recently said that the severity of the injury is not yet known, several sources say it could be a minimum of two weeks on the sidelines.
